Ansah (undisclosed) was placed on the PUP list by the Lions on Saturday, Kyle Meinke of MLive.com reports.
The Lions enter training camp with a thinned out defensive front with Ansah on the PUP list and Cornelius Washington being moved to the non-football injury list in addition to Armonty Bryant's absence due to suspension. Still, Ansah will be able to come off the PUP list once he's ready, which could be at any point during training camp. Look for a firmer timeline for Ansah's return once Detroit's camp gets underway.
The Saints opted to release Stoneburner on Monday, The New Orleans Advocate reports.
Stoneburner signed a reserve/future contract with the team following the conclusion of the 2017 season. Prior to the that, he was signed to the team's practice squad due to a rash of injuries at the position. The Ohio State product entered the league in 2012 as an undrafted free agent. Along with the Saints, he has spent time with the Packers, Dolphins, and Rams.
Stoneburner entered the league in 2012 as an undrafted free agent out of Ohio State. The 6-foot-3, 249-pound tight end has spent time with the Packers, Dolphins, and Rams, but was signed to the Saints' practice squad in September 2016. Stoneburner will compete for a roster spot next season as the Saints' third-string tight end behind Coby Fleener and Josh Hill.
