News: Ansah (shoulder) could make his preseason debut Friday against the Jaguars, Kyle Meinke of MLive.com reports. Impact: Ansah is slated to once again start alongside Ndamukong Suh and Nick Fairley on a vaunted Lions defensive line. He missed seven-plus months of offseason training to shoulder surgery, but appears to be close to retaking the field in pursuit of following up an eight-sack rookie season with a good sophomore campaign.(RotoWire, )

News: Ansah (shoulder) has been ruled out for Friday's preseason game against the Raiders, Kyle Meinke of MLive.com reports. Impact: Ansah was first activated from the PUP list Tuesday, so it makes sense that the Lions want to take things slowly with last year's No. 5 overall draft pick. Even though he's missed time due to injury, Ansah still enters 2014 as one of the more tempting IDP options along the defensive line after posting 32 tackles and eight sacks in just 502 snaps as a rookie.(RotoWire, )

News: Ansah (shoulder) has been activated from the PUP list, Ian Rapoport of NFL.com reports. Impact: Ansah has been relegated to limited physical activity and "mental reps" thus far in training camp, and it remains to be seen whether he'll play in the Lions' second preseason game Friday in Oakland. He'll likely be brought along slowly to ensure he's as close to full health as possible when the regular season opens.(RotoWire, )
