Lions' Ezekiel Ansah: Avoids major injury
Ansah (shoulder) avoided a major injury and hopes to play in Sunday's game against the 49ers, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
One of the league's top pass rushers on a per-snap basis, Ansah has spent much of his career battling through injuries that have limited his workload or effectiveness (or both). He's nonetheless managed to play 74 of a possible 81 career games, piling up 45 sacks and 10 forced fumbles along the way. Ansah is easily the best player on a shaky defensive line, so the Lions won't have much shot at mounting a decent pass rush if he isn't ready to go by Sunday. An Ansah absence would improve the outlook for Jimmy Garoppolo and the rest of the San Francisco offense.
