Ziggy Ansah sat down on a stool in front of his locker after practice today, grabbed the walking boot on floor and strapped it around his sprained left ankle. Ansah declined to answer questions about the injury he suffered two weeks ago, in a 31-30 win over the Dallas Cowboys, but the Detroit Lions added some insurance today in case Ansah can’t play Sunday against the Chicago Bears at Soldier Field. Defensive end Austen Lane, who had three sacks in three seasons with the Jacksonville Jaguars and was waived by the Kansas City Chiefs in August, signed a one-year deal to help the Lions’ depleted pass rush. Starting left end Jason Jones was lost for the season with a torn patellar tendon in September, and defensive tackle Nick Fairley hasn’t looked like himself since suffering a shoulder injury in Week 1. Defensive tackle C.J. Mosley, who played with Lane in Jacksonville, said the 6-foot-5 defensive end looked ready to contribute when he saw him in the locker room today. “Austen is...

Detroit Lions are new NFC North favorites

Sometimes in sports, all it takes is one little injury for the tables to turn upside down. This is especially true when it comes to my fantasy football teams. Such is the case in both fantasy football and real football, and unfortunately for the Green Bay Packers, they cannot go and claim Ryan Tannehill off of waivers and must roll out Seneca Wallace for the foreseeable future. Much...

Megatron's pre-game ritual includes yoga

ALLEN PARK, Mich. - Before he turns into Megatron on NFL fields every Sunday, Calvin Johnson does some Downward Dog, Warrior, Cobra and Pigeon poses. Part of Johnson's pre-game ritual includes practicing yoga by himself. Who knew the 6-foot-5, 236-pound freakish athlete was a yogi, too? "If I need to work on my hamstrings, if I need a full-body deal, or if I just need...

Nate Burleson: I won't 'pull an RG3' when making return from injury

Nate Burleson says he will not pull an “RG3″ and return too early

Nate Burleson Returns to Practice for First Time since Pizza Incident

Big boost for the Lions offense if Burleson returns soon rather than later. Him practicing is a good sign. No Ziggy Ansah, Calvin Johnson, Bill Bentley, Corey Hilliard or Louis Delmas at #Lions practice today. WR Nate Burleson did practice. — Tim Twentyman (@ttwentyman) November 5, 2013

Detroit Lions Playoff Watch, Week 10: Panthers-49ers Matchup Key in NFC Race

The Detroit Lions jumped from seventh place in the NFC to third (and first in the North) with the Bears’ win over Green Bay last Monday. As things stand right now, the Lions hold the tiebreaker edge on the Bears and Packers because of their 4-2 mark within the conference. The situation could change dramatically over the next few weeks — even with a win Sunday in Chicago, Detroit...

Lions healthy but taking nothing for granted

(Eds: APNewsNow. With AP Photos.) By NOAH TRISTER AP Sports Writer The Detroit Lions aren't about to rejoice over the misfortune of others. Even after two rival quarterbacks went down with injuries, the Lions are taking nothing for granted. The Lions are tied for first with the Packers and Bears in the NFC North, but Green Bay lost Aaron Rodgers to a broken collarbone Monday...

A 23-year poker player from East Lansing, Michigan, who was almost completely broke a year ago, stormed to victory in the World Series of Poker in Las Vegas — taking home $8.4 million in prize money. Ryan Riess — slightly disheveled and wearing a Detroit Lions Calvin Johnson jersey — burst into tears of joy, embraced his mother and sister and simply screamed out 'yes...

Chicago Bears vs Detroit Lions: brutally honest preview II

The visit to the Detroit Lions is looking to be a much bigger game on the Chicago Bears schedule than you probably thought in the preseason. Everyone thought the Green Bay Packers would take the division, and then it was a toss-up between the Bears and Vikings to see who would take second in the NFC North. Slightly more people within the NFL Punditocracy thought the Vikings had the...

Will Cutler Be Ready To Take On the Lions?

Detroit Lions Ndamukong Suh wants nothing but to play against Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler when the teams face each other Week 10. “I love playing against Cutler.  He’s a tough guy.  No discredit to [Josh] McCown, but I want the best shot.” But will Cutler be ready and healthy to go against the Lions this week?
