    Detroit Lions Pro Bowl defensive end Ezekiel Ansah has a left high ankle sprain, sources confirmed to ESPN Insider Adam Caplan on Monday night, and the severity of the sprain is not known.The type of ankle injury was first reported by NFL Network.Ansah, the teams first-round pick in 2013, injured the ankle on the third play from scrimmage in a 16-15 loss to the Tennessee Titans on Sunday. He limped to the sideline, was briefly examined on the trainers table and then walked to the locker room.He did not return to the game or the field. After Sundays game, he was spotted in an elevator at Ford Field. When asked how he was feeling and about the injury, Ansah declined to answer and walked off the elevator with a slight limp.Detroit coach Jim Caldwell refused to address Ansahs status Monday during his weekly press conference.If Ansah is unable to play Sunday against Green Bay, the Lions are likely to look to Kerry Hyder or Wallace Gilberry to replace him in the lineup alongside Devin Taylor. Hyder was tied for second in the NFL in sacks entering Monday night with three.The Lions mostly used a rotation of Taylor, Hyder and Gilberry with Ansah out against the Titans and also worked in Brandon Copeland, a defensive end who had to play both end and linebacker due to various Detroit injuries against the Titans.Kerry Hyder does what he usually does, Caldwell said.

The guys fought and they hung in there, just didnt make enough plays overall.It didnt necessarily have to be them, but Im just talking about overall as a team we just didnt make enough plays.The 27-year-old Ansah has two tackles this season and has not been inactive for a game since his rookie year in 2013. Hes coming off a 2014 season in which he had 14.5 sacks and emerged as a potential defensive star in the league. Johan Camargo Jersey.C. at the helm of the top team in the Eastern Conference. His tenure as the GM in Vancouver was all too brief. Though he led the Canucks to what was then a franchise record-shattering campaign in just his second season, Nonis was gone and replaced one year later. Mike Foltynewicz Jersey. He was followed closely by David Clarkson, donning red, seconds later. Clarksons actions one night earlier, leaping off the bench in defence of Kessel during a pre-season game against the Buffalo Sabres, will cost him the first 10 games of the regular season. Irving scored 23 points, Tristan Thompson had 20 points and 10 rebounds and the Cavaliers beat the Denver Nuggets 117-109 on Friday night. Custom Bob Uecker Jersey. They hope to persuade the other team owners and commissioner Roger Goodell to put pressure on Redskins owner Daniel Snyder to drop the nickname they find offensive.
