Lions LB Tahir Whitehead is expected to play on the weak side this season.
Paul Worrilow manned the weak side with Whitehead absent from OTAs last week. Whitehead spent last year in the middle, but he finished 59th among 59 qualifiers in PFF's inside linebacker ratings and has been replaced by first-round pick Jarrad Davis. Whitehead's primary competition on the outside will likely come from Worrilow, Brandon Copeland and Antwione Williams. May 28 - 9:45 AM
