Ezekiel Ansah News
Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said there's a chance that defensive end Ezekiel Ansah (shoulder) is ready for Week 1, but they won't know for sure until training camp begins. Ansah has always had plenty of pass-rushing potential, but he was never able to capitalize on it in Detroit due to various injuries. The 29-year-old played in only seven games in 2018 and hasn't played in a full season since 2015. Ansah has reached double-digit sack totals twice in his career, but those in IDP leagues will want to see him prove his health first. Seattle is hoping he can fill in for the loss of Frank Clark, who was traded to Kansas City.
The Seattle Seahawks signed free-agent defensive end Ezekiel Ansah to an undisclosed one-year deal on Wednesday, according to a source. The former Detroit Lion pass rusher will try to help fill the void on the defensive line that was left when Frank Clark was traded to the Chiefs just several weeks ago. The fifth overall pick of the 2013 draft still has potential, but he has been set back by injuries throughout his career and hasn't played a full season since 2015. When on the field, though, he should be a difference-maker with his new team. Ansah had just four sacks in seven games in 2018 but has reached double-digit sacks two different times in his career.
Free-agent defensive end Ezekiel Ansah (shoulder) had positive reviews from Dr. Neal ElAttrache on Monday, and he could be cleared by mid-August. Ansah's shoulder is structurally sound, but he still needs to gain strength in it heading into the 2019 season. The pass rusher visited with the Ravens on Wednesday and will surely be added by a team despite his history with injuries. Ansah played in only seven games with Detroit last year and hasn't played in a full season since 2015. He still has upside, though, with double-digit sack totals in 2015 and 2017, and he can help some team if he can stay on the field. Ansah will need to prove it before IDP owners will take a chance on him again.
The Detroit Lions placed defensive end Ezekiel Ansah (shoulder) on season-ending Injured Reserve on Tuesday. He will need surgery to fix his labrum, according to a source. The franchise-tagged player should be ready for training camp next summer. Ansah has a ton of talent, but injuries continue to derail his career, as he's played in 21 games the last two seasons. He had only 12 tackles and four sacks in his seven games for Detroit this season.
Detroit Lions defensive end Ezekiel Ansah (shoulder) and top cornerback Darius Slay (knee) are both active for Week 9 against the Vikings. It will be Ansah's first game since being injured in the season opener and it's a big boost for their pass rush, although Ansah is a risky IDP play in his first game back. Slay could be tasked with following around Vikings receiver Adam Thielen with Stefon Diggs (ribs) ruled out. The presence of Ansah and Slay is bad news for quarterback Kirk Cousins on Sunday. Running back Ameer Abdullah is a healthy scratch with Theo Riddick (knee) returning for the first time in several weeks.
