DETROIT — Defensive end Ziggy Ansah, who missed the past two games with a back injury, is active today against the Minnesota Vikings at Ford Field. He was limited in practice on Tuesday and Wednesday.
Defensive end Dwight Freeney who was acquired off waivers late on Wednesday will not dress today. He played 18 snaps in the Seahawks’ Monday night game so that would be a quick turn-around. Expect him to make his debut on Dec. 3 at Baltimore.
Look for T.J. Jones, Ameer Abdullah and Golden Tate to possibly fill in for Jamal Agnew on returns. Agnew sustained a knee injury in Sunday’s win at Chicago. He was listed as out on Wednesday’s injury report.
Running back Dwayne Washington (hip) was declared out on Wednesday. It’s the second straight game he’s been out and the sixth game he has missed this season
Other Lions inactives: Running back Tion Green, tackle Emmett Cleary and defensive end Jeremiah Valoaga.
