LB DeAndre Levy, DE Ziggy Ansah and TE Eric Ebron were among those players not participating in Lions practice Wednesday.
This is the fourth straight week Levy has not practiced. The only linebackers practicing today were Tahir Whitehead and Thurston Armbrister. They were joined by Zaviar Gooden Steve Longa) and from the practice roster.
Defensive end Ziggy Ansah was diagnosed with a high ankle sprain after last Sunday's loss to the Titans. He's questionable for this Sunday's game against the Green Bay Packers. If Ansah can't player Sunday, either Kerry Hyder or Wallace Gilberry will likely start in his place -- though Gilberry did not practice Wednesday.
In addition, Kyle Van Noy, Antoine Williams, Tyrunn Walker and Riley Reiff were not participating Wednesday.
