Lions DE Ezekiel Ansah limited Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Detroit Lions defensive end Ezekiel Ansah (shoulder) was limited in practice Thursday, per Kyle Meinke of MLive.com.

Ansah tallied two additional sacks in the Monday night loss at Seattle, pushing him to four on the season and into a tie for second in the NFL. While he's been listed with a different ailment each of the last three weeks, Ansah has brushed off the concern and played. So far, there has been no indication that the same won't occur in Week 5, but the Friday injury report should clarify his availability.

Detroit Lions' DeAndre Levy Practices in full Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

DeAndre Levy (hip) practiced in full Thursday, Kyle Meinke of MLive.com reports.

After taking on all practice reps to date this week, Levy is trending toward his season debut Sunday against the Cardinals. If he returns, he would likely shore up a run defense that has been a mid-tier unit through the first quarter of the current campaign, giving up 111.5 yards per game on the ground.

Lions RB Joique Bell probably a no-go Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joique Bell (ankle) didn't practice Thursday, and Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press noted that the running back isn't expected to play Sunday against the Cardinals.

The Detroit Lions haven't officially ruled out Bell for the Week 5 contest, but Birkett's report paves the way for Ameer Abdullah to head the backfield for a second week in a row. If Monday's loss to the Seahawks is any indication, Abdullah will earn most of the carries, while Theo Riddick serves in a pass-catching role.

DeAndre Levy back on practice field for Lions
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Detroit Lions linebacker DeAndre Levy (hip) returned to practice Wednesday, The Detroit News reports.

Levy was forced to sit out of the Lions' Week 4 Monday night contest against the Seattle Seahawks with the hip injury, but he returned to practice Wednesday. There is a chance he takes the field Week 5, as the winless Lions play the Arizona Cardinals at home.

Lions TE Brandon Pettigrew (hamstring) returns to practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Detroit Lions tight end Brandon Pettigrew (hamstring) returned to practice Wednesday, The Detroit News reports.

Wednesday marks Pettigrew's first practice since sustaining the hamstring injury Sept. 13, and he could be ready for the Lions' Week 5 matchup against the Arizona Cardinals .

Fellow tight end Eric Ebron (knee) is also banged up and expected to sit out a couple weeks, which would likely promote Pettigrew to the starting spot for the time being. Tim Wright would also likely see more snaps in Ebron's absence.
