Direct Traffic Spikes with "passedreferrer"

I'm seeing a large bit of traffic, over 600 sessions, that is marked as "/mobile/?a=a&passedreferrer=http://www.google.com/".  The Traffic is showing under Direct Traffic. I haven't seen this in the past. I've researched and can't find any specific information as to what type of traffic this is or what causes it? Has anyone else seen this or know what exactly this means?

Hi Carrie, I would move this question over to Referral Spam Traffic.
