  • Lions' Ezekiel Ansah: Productive in Tampa Bay
    By RotoWire Staff

    Ansah recorded seven tackles and one sack during Sunday's 24-21 victory over the Buccaneers. This easily represents Ansah's best performance since his six-tackle, three-sack day against the Giants in Week 2. While his floor is admittedly low -- Ansah entered the week averaging just 2.5 tackles per game -- there's no questioning the upside the 2013 first-rounder possesses, as seen Sunday. He's best used in favorable matchups, however. In Week 15 against the Bears, Ansah draws a date with left tackle Charles Leno Jr., who checks in as Pro Football Focus' 17th-highest graded tackle in pass protection.

  • Lions' Ezekiel Ansah: Active Sunday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Ansah (ankle) is active for Sunday's matchup with Tampa Bay. Ansah sat out practice Wednesday and Thursday before returning in limited fashion Friday, leading to his questionable tag entering Sunday. Though he's active, it remains unclear if he'll be at all limited. If he's forced to see a lesser role than usual, look for Dwight Freeney and Cornelius Washington to get some extra snaps.

  • Ansah (back) was a limited participant in Tuesday's practice. Ansah's status for the Thanksgiving Day game against the Vikings likely won't be cleared until he practices fully, which could happen Wednesday. The defensive end has missed the Lions' last two games with the back issue, but the team has been able to win without his services while matching up against non-contending teams in the Browns and Bears.

  • Lions' Ezekiel Ansah: Ruled out for Sunday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Ansah (back) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Bears, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports. Ansah absence in the Week 10 win over the Browns didn't go unnoticed, as the Lions allowed 100 rushing yards for only the second time this season. The Bears feature two quality running backs in Jordan Howard and Tarik Cohen, putting pressure on Cornelius Washington to step up his play in Ansah's stead for the second consecutive week.
