Lions' Ezekiel Ansah: Two sacks in Seattle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ansah recorded nine tackles, two sacks, two TFLs and five QB hits during Saturday's playoff game in Seattle.

Ansah appeared fully recovered from both his most recent shoulder injury -- as well as his lingering ankle issue from the very beginning of the season -- en route to a huge day against one of the league's worst offensive lines. While the former first-rounder finished the regular season with just 35 tackles and two sacks across 13 games, Ansah remains a top-shelf talent that was simply hampered by injury throughout the 2016 campaign. Expect a significant bounce-back effort from the fourth-year defensive end next season.

Lions' Ezekiel Ansah: Will play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ansah (shoulder) will play Sunday against the Giants.

Ansah was unable to return to Week 14's win over the Bears due to a shoulder injury, but the issue won't keep him sidelined for an extended period of time. Expect Ansah to draw the start at defensive end per usual.

Lions' Ezekiel Ansah: Questionable for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ansah (shoulder) is considered questionable to play in Sunday's game against the Giants.

Ansah injured his shoulder in Sunday's win over the Bears, and was unable to return. After missing Wednesday's practice, he was able to work on a limited basis the rest of the week. His status appears to be trending toward a true game-time decision Sunday. Kerry Hyder would presumably be in line to fill in at defensive end if he cannot go.

Lions' Ezekiel Ansah: Questionable to return Sunday versus Bears
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ansah (shoulder) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against Chicago, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

Ansah exited the game in the second quarter with a towel draped over his head, suggesting the injury may be serious. Kerry Hyder will consequently slot in with the first-string unit until further notice.

Lions' Ezekiel Ansah: Active Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Ansah (ankle) will be active for Sunday's tilt against the Bears.

The high-ankle sprain Ansah suffered in Week 2 has, so far, impacted his production on the field, but at least he hasn't been forced to miss game action as of late. He'll get the start once again at defensive end across from Devin Taylor.
