Ezekiel Ansah

Defensive Line • Lions

Bottom Line

Ansah’s play has slipped over the last two years, and he’s admitted as much. Ansah says it’s because of injuries. He had shoulder and ankle problems in 2016, when he finished with just two sacks in 13 games. Last season, he played through a knee issue early, then dealt with back and ankle problems. He had 44 combined tackles and 12 sacks in 14 games, but Ansah padded his sack total with three-sack games against the Giants and Bengals, two teams with terrible offensive lines. Entering his age-29 season, “Ziggy” can still be a difference-maker, but his recent medical problems add an element of risk.
