Lions LB Tahir Whitehead bulking up to improve against run

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/9/15) Lions third-year linebacker Tahir Whitehead is trying to maximize his run-stopping ability, so he spent time in the offseason trying to maximize his weight without sacrificing quickness. The result was a gain of seven poinds to 245.

Whitehead was provided an opportunity to play last year when Stephen Tulloch went down three games in. But Tulluch has since recovered, which results in Whitehead competing with Kyle Van Noy for the starting strongside job.

He certainly proved his worth in 2014. Whitehead racked up 12 tackles in his first start a year ago and finished the season with 86 as a full-time starter. But despite statistics that motivated Pro Football Focus to grade him out positively against the run, he felt he needed to put on some weight.

"Watching back last season, sometimes in the run game, I wasn't as sturdy as I could have been," he told MLive.com. "I bulked up a bit to be more stout against the run."

Stephen Tulloch to be starting MLB when he returns

by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(3/26/15) The Lions' Stephen Tulloch will start at middle linebacker again once he returns from the torn ACL he suffered Week 3 last year, reports MLive.com. "He's highly experienced and highly productive," coach Jim Caldwell told the website. "And he's a great leader."

Tulloch, 30, is progressing well in his rehab, the report said, but it's unclear when he'll return. Tulloch had 135 tackles and 3.5 sacks in 2013, his last full season.

Tahir Whitehead likely will fill in until Tulloch returns. Whitehead had 86 tackles and two interceptions last year.

Lions' Don Carey, Tahir Whitehead return to action Sunday

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1/4/15) Lions strong safety Don Carey and linebacker Tahir Whitehead both returned to Sunday's Wild Card game against the Cowboys after being deemed questionable in the third quarter.

Both players were diagnosed with dehydration, but both were able to make it back onto the field before the end of the third quarter. The Lions have a 20-14 lead heading into the fourth quarter.

Lions' Pettigrew, Whitehead, Carey questionable to return Sunday

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1/4/15) Lions tight end Brandon Pettigrew, linebacker Tahir Whitehead and strong safety Don Carey are questionable to return to Sunday's Wild Card game against the Cowboys, the team announced.

Pettigrew is being evaluated for a concussion. Whitehead and Carey are dealing with dehydration.

Lions unveil final injury report for Week 15

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/12/14) Lions defensive tackle Nick Fairley (knee) was ruled out for Sunday's clash against the Vikings, according to the team's final injury report released on Friday. Running back Reggie Bush (ankle) and linebacker Tahir Whitehead (shoulder) were deemed questionable.

Meanwhile, linebacker Josh Bynes (illness), safety James Ihedigbo (illness), defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh (illness), wide receiver Calvin Johnson (ankle), cornerback Darius Slay (shoulder) and tackle LaAdrian Waddle (concussion) were ruled probable for Week 15.
