Lions' Teez Tabor: Dealing with hamstring injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tabor is nursing an injured hamstring and isn't certain to be ready in time for training camp, MLive.com's Kyle Meinke reports.

Tabor has been tending to an ailing hamstring since the pre-draft process, which might help explain his surprisingly low 40-yard dash times. He's expected to be limited by the injury for at least a couple more weeks now and it appears he could be in danger of missing the onset of training camp in late July.

Lions' Ezekiel Ansah: Aiming for double-digit sacks in 2017
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ansah hopes to notch "double-digit" sack numbers in 2017, WJR 760's Michael Stets reports. "[Getting sacks] is what I'm paid to do. ... I'm really focused this year. I'm excited for what we have coming up and it's definitely going to be better than last year," Ansah added.

After a high-ankle sprain from Week 2 of last season cost Ansah the following three games, it then lingered throughout the remainder of the year and was the reason for the defensive end's weekly appearance on the injury report. As a result, Ansah turned in a career-low two sacks as he consistently appeared sapped of his explosiveness and was unable to shed blocks and take on double teams like he normally could. In turn, the Lions as a whole finished 30th in the NFL with just 26 sacks in 2016, which is quite a turnaround after finishing in seventh place with 43 sacks just a season before when Ansah recorded the third-most sacks in the league (14.5). Thus, it would seem a healthy and effective Ansah not only has the potential to return to the elite ranks of defensive lineman in IDP formats but could also elevate the statistical production of players around him.
