DETROIT — Defensive end Ziggy Ansah will miss his first game of the season today at Ford Field against the Cleveland Browns.

Wide receiver Kenny Golladay, who has missed five games with a hamstring, is active today.
Linebacker Jalen Reeves-Maybin (ankle) was also out as of Friday.
Other Lions inactives: Safety Don Carey (knee), running backs Zach Zenner and Tion Green.
Browns inactives: QB Kevin Hogan, DB Darius Hillary, OL Marcus Martin, OL Larry Ogunjobi, WR Kasen Williams, TE Matt Lengel and DL T.Y. McGill.
