Ansah injures shoulder in Detroit Lions’ opener
DETROIT (AP) — Detroit defensive end Ziggy Ansah left Monday night’s game against the New York Jets with a shoulder injury.
It wasn’t clear how severe the injury was, but it was a concerning development for the Lions, who kept the standout pass rusher this year on the franchise tag. Ansah hasn’t played a full 16 games since the 2015 season. He had 12 sacks in 14 games a season ago.
Jets cornerback Trumaine Johnson was evaluated for a head injury but came back into the game. Johnson intercepted a pass in the second quarter but took a hard hit while returning it and fumbled the ball back to Detroit.
