Ziggy Ansah questionable, Jamal Agnew out for Lions

The Lions will kick off the NFL’s Thanksgiving slate by hosting the Vikings and they may have defensive end Ziggy Ansah back in the lineup for the NFC North clash.

Ansah missed the last two games with a back injury, but he was able to practice on a limited basis this week and has been listed as questionable on the team’s injury report. Ansah has had a quiet season outside of a three-sack game against the Giants in Week Two, but the Lions could certainly use some flashes of his old skills as they try to slow down the Minnesota offense.

The Lions won’t have punt returner Jamal Agnew, who has been ruled out with a knee injury. It will be the first game the rookie has missed this season, so he won’t be adding to his two punt return touchdowns on the year.

Running back Dwayne Washington is also out with a hip injury while linebacker Jalen Reeves-Maybin is questionable.

    Lions 35 Vikes 14

    Much easier game at home, and already won in Minny.

    A lot of confidence after barely escaping with a win against Chicago.

    Against…Chicago.

    The Bears.

    So far this season Lions 1-0 versus Minnesota. Can’t change the past.

    Lions find a way to get it done, already have their one loss to the Refs they have every year, so yeah, confidence is high.

    Of course you cant change the past but a lot has changed since then.

    A LOT

    Keenum found his grove after Bradford went down and the Vikings havent looked back since.

  4. The Lions are the achilliles heel of the vikings. If there is any team that can beat the vikings even when they shouldn’t (last year at the bank being a prime example) it’s the Lions. The Vikes better go in guns blazing, because Detroit knows this game means everything. If the Vikes win and take a three game lead with 5 left, the North is all but won. However, if Detroit takes it, it honestly could be the lions division for the taking due to their remaining schedule.
