The Lions put on Tuesday defensive end Ezekiel Ansah on injured reserve Tuesday according to the team’s official website.
Ansah dislocated his shoulder against the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday and is expected to require surgery. Playing on the franchise tag, the 29-year-old Ansah was limited to seven games by shoulder issues this season.
He notched four sacks on 146 snaps after posting 12 sacks in 2017. Originally the No.5-overall pick out of BYU in 2013, it seems likely that Ansah has placed his last down for the Lions.
