Detroit Lions Jim Caldwell on Van Noy, Ihedigbo, NFL domestic abuse policy and more

ALLEN PARK — Detroit Lions coach Jim Caldwell addressed the media on Labor Day covering a number of issues.

 Here are the highlights:

— Short-term injured reserve tag still a possibility for linebacker Kyle Van Noy who underwent core muscle surgery on Thursday morning. He returned from Philadelphia on Sunday night. Caldwell said a final decision has not been made on his status. They could make the move on Tuesday, which would open a spot on the 53-man roster until his return. "A lot of it depends on him and how quickly he heals,'' Caldwell said.

— James Ihedigbo didn’t travel to Buffalo for the final preseason game on Thursday because he was getting treatment for an undisclosed injury. Caldwell would offer no specifics, said the information will be on the injury report. 

— While Caldwell treats his players like men, he does give them direction for their lives away from the team. He will address the NFL’s new domestic abuse policy with them. “We will talk about it in detail,’’ Caldwell said.

— The coach would not say whether Corey Hilliard or LaAdrian Waddle will start at right tackle. He would also not name the starting strong-side linebacker. The depth chart for Monday’s game has yet to be released.

— Caldwell said Kellen Moore’s play in the preseason games affected their decision to keep three quarterbacks. He wouldn’t say if Moore is No. 2 or No. 

The team practices at 3:35 p.m.
