Lions' Ezekiel Ansah: May miss multiple games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ansah (ankle) will not play Sunday against the Packers, and he could be held out in Week 4 against the Bears, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Ansah suffered a high-ankle sprain in Week 2, and while he is expected to get a second MRI on the ankle, it's also possible he misses more than the two games.

Lions' Ezekiel Ansah: Believed to have high-ankle sprain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ansah was diagnosed with a high-ankle sprain, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.

The injury forced Ansah out of Sunday's loss to the Titans in the first quarter, freeing up snaps for Kerry Hyder, who then notched his third sack of the season. Although a recovery timetable hasn't yet been reported, Ansah is already expected to miss some time, as is usually the case for players with high-ankle sprains. Despite boasting solid depth at defensive end, this is undeniably a huge loss for a Detroit defense that got 14.5 of its 43 sacks (33.7 percent) from Ansah last season. Hyder, Wallace Gilberry and Brandon Copeland could all take on extra snaps, assuming Ansah does in fact miss time.

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

Ansah suffered an ankle injury against the Titans and is questionable to return, Jason Wolf of The Tennessean reports.

Ansah went down with the ankle injury early in the game. He spent all week nursing a shoulder injury, so the Lions may decide to call it a day for their banged-up defensive star. Look for Wallace Gilberry to play in Ansah's absence.

Lions' Ezekiel Ansah: Active for Week 2 versus Titans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ansah (shoulder) is active for Sunday's Week 2 matchup versus the Titans, Tim Twentyman of the team's official site reports.

The 27-year-old was able to log a full practice Friday after limited participation on Wednesday and Thursday. Ansah recorded two tackles (one solo) against the Colts in the opener, but is expected to be a vital part of the Lions' pass rush in 2016.

Lions' Ezekiel Ansah: Listed as questionable against Titans
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Ansah (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against Tennessee.

Limited the previous two days, Ansah returned to full participation Friday, putting him in good shape for Sunday's matchup with an improved Tennessee offensive line. He didn't do much in the opener, recording just two tackles (one solo) and no sacks against Andrew Luck and the Colts.
