Lions LB Tahir Whitehead played as the second-team middle linebacker in the third preseason game.
Whitehead had lined up as the first-team strongside 'backer throughout training camp, but Travis Lewis started and recorded eight tackles in that position against the Jaguars. A 2012 seventh-round pick, Lewis has just seven career tackles, so it would be surprising if Whitehead lost his job to him. Whitehead's role could be in danger if 2014 second-rounder Kyle Van Noy could ever get healthy. Aug 29 - 9:00 AM
