Ansah misses second straight Lions practice

ALLEN PARK, Mich. - Ziggy Ansah missed his second consecutive practice Monday, and sticking to the script, Jim Schwartz didn't want to talk about it.

The Lions defensive end was never seen throughout the team's two-hour workout. He hasn't practiced since Saturday, when he left practice after getting hit in the head.

Ansah left Sunday's practice during team stretches, with a towel over his head, adding to speculation he may be dealing with a possible concussion.

"Everybody's at a different spot physically, but I don't have any comment on where anybody is right now," Schwartz said.

The Lions head coach maintained his stance on discussing injuries, calling it too close to the regular season.

"Everybody's at a different spot physically. Some guys are able to practice, some guys aren't. We'll take them all on a case-by-case basis, but we don't have anybody that's long-term."

Schwartz categorized long-term as having a "season in jeopardy or going to be out a while."

In three preseason games, Ansah has been a part of an impressive defensive line, including an interception return for a touchdown in the opener against Cleveland.
