Ezekiel Ansah Injury Updates

Seahawks DE Ezekiel Ansah (ankle), S Bradley McDougald (back) and DL Quinton Jefferson (oblique) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Ravens. McDougald missed practice all week and shouldn't be in your IDP plans. He's gotten off to a disappointing fantasy start anyway after a solid 2018. Jefferson showed up on the injury report Thursday and finished the week with a pair of limited practices. Ansah returned to a limited workout Friday after missing the 1st 2 days. We'll check the status for all 3 on Sunday afternoon.

Seahawks DE Ezekiel Ansah missed practice Wednesday and Thursday with an ankle injury. We hadn't seen any previous reports of the ailment, but that might explain his significant decrease in playing time against the Browns. Ansah doesn't look like a good IDP bet against Baltimore -- even if he shows up active.

Seahawks CB Tre Flowers is active for today's game against the Saints. He entered the day questionable with an ankle issue that popped up during the week, limiting his Thursday practice and sidelining him Friday. Flowers carries risk but is available as a low-level IDP. Rookie DE L.J. Collier is a bit of a surprise inactive. He wouldn't be an IDP target even if he were playing, but the 1st-round pick returned from his preseason ankle sprain to play limited snaps last week and then didn't appear on the injury report this week. Collier's likely still working back to full strength overall, while Seattle needed the spot on the active roster. Notably, DE Ezekiel Ansah will make his Seahawks debut after missing the 1st 2 games. He put in full practices all week and finished off the injury report.

Seahawks DE Ezekiel Ansah (shoulder) is inactive for the 2nd straight game. HC Pete Carroll expressed optimism (what else is new?) about Ansah's chances of playing early in the week. We'd expect that Ansah will return for Week 3. Rookie DE L.J. Collier, meanwhile, will make his NFL debut today against the Steelers. He had been out through most of the summer with an ankle injury. The Seattle edge picture is still developing.

Seahawks DE Ezekiel Ansah is out for today's game against the Bengals. Ansah was listed on the injury report with the shoulder that had offseason surgery. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport says he has been dealing with a groin issue lately, though. Ansah probably shouldn't be in IDP lineups until we see him for at least 1 game.

Seahawks DE Ezekiel Ansah (shoulder) is questionable for Sunday's opener against the Bengals. Ansah put in limited practices all week and should be ready to play. For how many snaps coming off his shoulder surgery? We'll see. Ansah is a risk-reward option for sack-heavy IDP formats. Rookie DE L.J. Collier is not yet ready to return from his summer ankle injury. He put in limited practices all week, but Seattle has ruled him out agains the Bengals.

The Seahawks don't expect DE Ezekiel Ansah to return to practice until after the start of training camp, HC Pete Carroll said Tuesday, according to ProFootballTalk.com. Ansah has been taking part in walkthroughs to learn the defense, and Carroll says he's working to regain strength in his repaired shoulder -- which is healed. "These six weeks coming up will be crucial, and we have a really specific plan set up for him," Carroll said. "I don't think we'll rush him. There won't be a need to start him up right out of the chutes, and we'll see how he goes in the weeks to follow." IDP owners should be apprehensive with Ansah this summer. He lost 9 games to injury last year and 14 total over the past 3 years.

Lions DE Ezekiel Ansah and DT Damon Harrison are questionable for Sunday's game against the Panthers as each deals with a shoulder injury. Both players put in limited practices all week. Ansah played through questionable tags the past 2 games. We'd bet on him being active again, but he'll need to grow his role before returning to real IDP consideration. Harrison's issue is new, but his participation in practice all week leaves us optimistic. We'll see about his status Sunday morning. Detroit will definitely be without its other starting DT, A'Shawn Robinson, who has been ruled out with an ankle injury.

Lions DE Ezekial Ansah is active for today's game against the Vikings. He had been sidelined since suffering a shoulder injury in the 1st half of Week 1. We'll see just how many snaps he's in for. Ansah's a deep option for IDP owners but carries lots of risk as well.

The Lions "are optimistic" that DE Ezekiel Ansah will finally return from his Week 1 shoulder injury today against the Vikings, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Ansah will test it out pregame, and it's tough to know just how much we can expect Ansah to play. But he's at least expected to be available for the 1st time since the 1st half of the 1st game. Ansah's return will likely affect the playing time of recent IDP stud DE Romeo Okwara, who has been manning Ansah's right DE spot.

Lions DE Ezekiel Ansah is questionable for Sunday's game against the Vikings with his shoulder injury. He put in limited practices all week, but that's happened before. He hasn't appeared in a game since Week 1, though. We'll see about his status Sunday morning. Ansah probably needs to make it through a game before most of us can use him in IDP lineups. If he's out again, Romeo Okwara remains the lead guy at the right DE spot.

Lions DE Ezekiel Ansah (shoulder) is inactive once again for today's game against the Seahawks. He still has not played since suffering the injury back in Week 1. MLB Jarrad Davis is active, however after entering the day questionable with a calf injury. He's good to go in a positive matchup for IDP lineups.

Lions DE Ezekiel Ansah is questionable for Sunday's game against the Dolphins. He put in limited practices every day this week but also did so in Week 2, Week 3 and Week 5 before missing those games. We'll see about Ansah's status in his potential return from the Week 1 shoulder injury Sunday morning.

The Lions have ruled DE Ezekiel Ansah out for Sunday’s game against the Packers. It’ll be his 4th straight missed game for the shoulder injury suffered in Week 1

Lions DE Ezekiel Ansah is out for Sunday's game against the Cowboys. He clearly suffered a setback with his injured shoulder, which cost him the entire practice week. MLB Jarrad Davis (knee) is active after showing up questionable on Friday's injury report with a knee issue. He's an OK IDP option.

Lions DE Ezekiel Ansah missed practice Wednesday because of the shoulder injury that has kept him out since the opener. Ansah put in limited practices each of the past 2 weeks and hit the weekend "questionable" before ultimately being inactive. The missed practice to begin this week, however, might indicate a setback in his recovery. We'll watch for further details ahead of an upside sack matchup with the Cowboys.

Lions CB Darius Slay is active for tonight's game against the Patriots, just a week after suffering a concussion at San Francisco. It's somewhat surprising after Slay reached the weekend without having cleared the league protocol, but Detroit's top cover man is available if you waited on him for your IDP lineup. DE Ezekiel Ansah is inactive for the 2nd straight week, however, because of a shoulder injury.

Lions DE Ezekiel Ansah is questionable for Sunday's game against the 49ers with the shoulder injury that knocked him out of Week 1 early. Ansah put in limited practices all week, though, and appears to be trending toward playing. We'll see about his status Sunday afternoon, ahead of the 4:05 p.m. ET kickoff.
