The Detroit Lions have made an absolutely shocking start to the 2015 NFL season.
The Lions have opened up the new campaign with a 0-5 record, complete with losses to the Minnesota Vikings and San Diego Chargers, two teams that aren't even likely to challenge for the playoffs this year.
Surgery Needed for Levy
The Lions topped that all off with a 42-17 loss to the Arizona Cardinals, with the dismay compounded further by DeAndre Levy getting injured again.

Lions head coach Jim Caldwell announced today, via the team's official Twitter account, that Levy has to undergo surgery and will be out for an indefinite period.
Out for the Season?
It was a brief return, however, as the linebacker was out of the game before halftime after aggravating the injury. Caldwell admitted after the game that it was possible that Levy would miss the rest of the year.
“Yeah, I think, obviously the doctors will make that final determination on that,” Caldwell said. “They’ll look at him closely. They’ll make some evaluation and see where he is.”
Levy signed a five-year extension with the Lions before the start of the season, and it is fair to say that Detroit haven't exactly got their monies worth from from the 28-year-old as of yet.
