Nick Fairley out following unspecified 'procedure'
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5/21/14) Lions defensive tackle Nick Fairley was not at OTAs on Tuesday after undergoing a procedure, coach Jim Caldwell told the Detroit News without elaborating. Caldwell is unsure if Fairley will return for the end of OTAs.

"He’s got a medical issue he’s dealing with," Caldwell said. "He’ll be back as soon as he’s recovered."

One veteran told the paper that Fairley's procedure was minor and not football-related, the paper said.

Nick Fairley shows up, Ndamukong Suh doesn't
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/7/14) Lions defensive tackle Nick Fairley attended the first day of the team's voluntary conditioning program, while fellow defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh did not, reports MLive.com. With Detroit electing not to pick up Fairley's 2015 option, his presence Monday "is an early sign that the team's risky move has grabbed the defensive tackle's attention," the report said.

Suh's decision isn't big news, according to the website. "He's a workout warrior and consistently one of the league's best-conditioned players," the report said.

Lions won't pick up Nick Fairley's 2015 option
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/24/14) Lions general manager Martin Mayhew told MLive.com the team won't exercise the $5.5 million option on defensive tackle Nick Fairley for 2015. The announcement was designed as motivation, with Mayhew saying he wants a "juiced up" Fairley this season.

Fairley did not control his weight late last year and finished with 36 tackles, six sacks and two forced fumbles.

Big topic in Detroit: Nick Fairley's belly
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/3/14) Lions defensive tackle Nick Fairley is listed at 298 pounds, but he appeared to weigh at least 320 by season's end and "played with a sizeable belly," reports MLive.com. General manager Martin Mayhew has said he'd like Fairley to "reposition" some weight.

"As I told him, I'd like to see his commitment to the offseason program improve, and see him on a consistent basis," Mayhew told the website. "It's voluntary, but if he's not training with us, I'd like to see him training somewhere."

Detroit can start its offseason program April 7. Fairley is entering the final year of his rookie deal, and the team needs to decide whether to pick up his 2015 option.

Lions trying to get more out of Nick Fairley
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/9/14) New Lions defensive coordinator Teryl Austin will look to maximize the potential of defensive tackle Nick Fairley, reports MLive.com. Fairley is entering the final year of his rookie deal.

"Our goal is we want to make sure we give our guys the opportunity to play the best that they can all the time," Austin told the website. "We have to figure out how we can motivate, how we can get him to do that. Whatever it is that touches him that makes him do that, that's what we have to find out.

"Obviously, we haven't had a chance to sit down and talk about all those things or do those things with Nick, but the time will come from that," he continued. "I think that, you know, we'll do whatever we can to try and help him be more successful because he can be a really dominant player. We just have to have him try and be a dominant player for 16 games. That's really our goal."
