Report: Lions ‘hopeful’ Ezekiel Ansah can play vs. 49ers after MRI on shoulder
December 05, 2018 05:48PM
On Monday Detroit Lions T-Shirt , the optimism surrounding the Detroit Lions’ pass rush lasted an entire quarter. Ezekiel Ansah and Devon Kennard each picked up a sack early and gave rookie Sam Darnold some heat in his debut. However, Ansah went down with an injury after just 19 defensive snaps, and the Lions’ pass rush vanished. They wouldn’t record a sack for the rest of the night.Head coach Matt Patricia didn’t provide an update on Ansah’s shoulder injury after the game and he said his equivalent to “check the report” during Wednesday’s press conference. But a report from Adam Schefter suggests the Lions got good news regarding the Lions’ best pass rusher. According to Schefter, an MRI revealed that Ansah did not suffer a significant injury and the Lions are “hopeful he can play” against the 49ers this weekend. Last week, the Lions had only five defensive linemen active against the Jets, so Ziggy’s importance to the team cannot be overstated. In Ansah’s place Detroit Lions Hats , the Lions mostly played Kerry Hyder against the Jets, but that limited his ability to also play on the inside in some packages. Ansah makes the entire defense better, there’s little doubt about that. However, if he can go, how effective will he look? We’ve seen an injured Ansah out there before, and it hasn’t been pretty. At this point Detroit Lions Hoodie , though, the Lions don’t really seem to have any better options.Wednesday open thread: Are the Detroit Lions the worst team in the NFC North? As the division currently stands, the Detroit Lions sit at the bottom at 0-2. They aren’t all that far behind anyone else in the division, seeing as every other team has just one win thanks to an uncommon tie between the Vikings and Packers last week. And with the Bears notching their first win of the season on Monday night, that leaves Detroit facing a very real and unfortunate possibility: they may be the worst team in the NFC North.Today’s Question of the Day is:Are the Lions the worst team in the NFC North?My answer: I’d love to sit here and say with authority that they’re still a better team than the Bears, but I can’t do that. While Chicago’s offense still very much looks like a work in progress Cheap Customized Detroit Lions Jerseys , their defense is for real. In fact, the Bears defense was pretty darn good last year, too. But being healthy and adding Khalil Mack to the gang has turned this into one of the best defenses in the league. That’s not hyperbole, they’re literally the best defense in the NFL according to Pro Football Focus;The Lions, meanwhile, are struggling at all three phases of the game. They took a step in the right direction last week www.thelionsfootballauthentic.com , but they’re still well behind everyone in the division. The good news is that just because they’re the worst team in the division right now doesn’t mean they will be by the season’s end. Teams change throughout the year. Some get better, some get worse. The Lions’ 2018 season isn’t over, but it does feel like it’s already on life support, and if they don’t show marked improvement quick, you’ll be able to cement their spot at the bottom of the division.Your turn.
