 Draft Scout Snapshot: A closer look at the Lions' picks: Round 1/5 - Ziggy Ansah, DE, 6-5, 271, BYU...The Lions may have preferred one of the elite offensive tackles, but this is hardly a consolation prize. The need at defensive end is acute and this guy is an athletic marvel - body by LeBron James, with 4.6 speed, a 35-inch arm span, 34-inch vertical, and 10-inch hands. QUOTE TO NOTE: "I don't know if I want to use the word hate because you can't concentrate if you hate somebody. You've got to love them. If you love somebody, you want to grab them. So, I love quarterbacks." -- DE Ziggy Ansah on whether he hates quarterbacks. - The Sports Xchange

09/17/14 - DE Ziggy Ansah missed practice Wednesday with a knee injury.
08/21/14 - DE Ezekiel Ansah hopes to get his first snaps of the preseason Friday, but coaches will check with the doctors before deploying him. A 2013 first-round pick, Ansah was taken off the physically unable to perform list last week after recovering from shoulder surgery in February. He will be a starter this season and the most likely pass rusher to have double-digit sacks after posting eight as a rookie.
08/13/14 - DE Ezekiel Ansah passed his physical and was cleared to practice Tuesday.
08/07/14 - DE Ezekiel Ansah continued to ramp up his activity with a trainer off to the side. On Thursday, Ansah ran around several pads and hit each one at full force with one of his arms, showing no weakness with his surgically-repaired left shoulder. Ansah also worked on his punches with both arms. He'll likely be taken off the physically unable to perform list soon.
08/05/14 - DE Ziggy Ansah, the Detroit Lions' first-round pick in 2013, looks like he will be activated from the physically unable to perform list in the near future. The Lions placed Ansah on the PUP at the start of training camp as he continued to recover from a February shoulder surgery. During camp, Ansah regularly worked on the sideline with a trainer, and he did his most extensive work Monday. "He's making good progress," coach Jim Caldwell said. "I mean, they're ramping up his activities in terms of his rehab. I think as you watch him out here, he's doing more and more and more each day. He's getting close, so we'll see what happens." Caldwell did not say whether or not Ansah would be available for the exhibition opener Saturday against the Cleveland Browns on Saturday at Ford Field. Ansah led all rookies with eight sacks last season, and if he's healthy, he'll start this season at open end in coordinator Teryl Austin's new defense. During his work with a trainer, Ansah wore a brace on his left shoulder. He did some work with his hands to simulate engaging a blocker and also tested his shoulders and individually.
