Ansah (shoulder) is expected to play Sunday against the 49ers, a source informed Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. Ansah carries a questionable tag into the Week 2 matchup, but it appears the Lions were pleased enough with his health during his three limited practices this week to include him in the defensive game plan. The defensive end was limited to 21 total snaps in the embarrassing Week 1 loss to the Jets, finishing with three tackles and a sack.
Ansah (shoulder) is listed as questionable to play in Sunday's game against the 49ers. The effectiveness of Detroit's pass rush hinges on Ansah's availability, so not having him in the lineup would be a huge blow to a Lions defense that got torched by a rookie-led Jets offense in Week 1. If Ansah is ultimately ruled out, expect both Kerry Hyder and Da'Shawn Hand to earn significant run with the starters.
Ansah (shoulder) recorded four tackles (three solo) and one sack across 19 defensive snaps in Monday's loss to the Jets. Ansah started off the game strong but he was once again bit by the injury bug, exiting the contest with a shoulder injury. When Ansah is on the field he's dominate, as evident by his sack on Sam Darnold, but the defensive end has struggled to remain healthy over the past three seasons. Look for more updates on his status to come once the practice reports are released Wednesday.
Ansah (shoulder) has been ruled out for the remainder of Monday's game against the Jets, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports. With the Lions down 31 points in the fourth quarter, there is little reason to bring Ansah back if there any chance of worsening the injury. He will look to work his way back for Week 2.
Ansah suffered a shoulder injury in Monday's game against the Jets and is questionable to return, Justin Rogers of the Detroit News reports. According to Rogers, Ansah underwent surgery on his shoulder a year ago, so there will be hope that tonight's issue is unrelated. The veteran made his presence felt prior to exiting the game, recording two tackles and one sack.
