Shark Bites

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.

Recent Shark Bites

Seahawks DE Ezekiel Ansah (ankle) is active for today’s game against the Falcons. There’s some risk after he missed last week, but he also carries significant sack upside against Atlanta. CB Tre Flowers (neck) and S Quandre Diggs (hamstring) are inactive for the game. S Bradley McDougald (back) is active but isn’t a strong IDP option.

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 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 questionable for Sunday's game against the Steelers. Ansah sat out Week 1 following a "questionable" designation. He looks like to make his Seattle debut, however, after putting in full workouts Thursday and Friday. HC Pete Carroll said early in the week that he expected Ansah to be ready for Week 2. The matchup with Pittsburgh is poor for sack upside, so try to hold off before putting Ansah into your IDP lineup.

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.
