Lions DE Ansah could return vs. Vikings

Reuters | Updated: 02-11-2018 23:53 IST | Created: 02-11-2018 23:53 IST

Defensive end Ziggy Ansah could rejoin the Detroit Lions on the field Sunday at Minnesota for the first time since injuring his shoulder in Week 1.

Ansah was able to practice without limitation for the past two weeks but did not play, a subject that has created some testiness between head coach Matt Patricia and members of the media checking on Ansah's status.

On Friday, Patricia calmly signaled optimism Ansah, 29, could be back this week.

"He's right in the mix right now with all of it," Patricia said. "You want to go out and see him be able to produce in practice and function at a level in practice where, A, he can protect himself and, B, he can do what you need him to do. And then be able to come in the next day and still feel like he's moving in the right direction of that."

Ansah, retained with the franchise designation in the offseason, has played just 19 snaps this season because of the injury that occurred in the season-opening loss to the New York Jets.

The franchise designation pays Ansah $17.143 million for 2018.
