The Lions put Ansah and tight end Michael Roberts on injured reserve Tuesday with shoulder problems. Detroit signed tight end Jerome Cunningham and offensive lineman Leo Koloamatangi from the practice squad to the active roster.Detroit kept Ansah this season with the franchise tag Ryan Succop Jersey , but he's dealt with injuries all season and has played in only seven games. He's still managed four sacks, bringing his total to 48 in six seasons with the Lions.Detroit beat Arizona 17-3 last weekend and plays at Buffalo next. The Lions (5-8) are a longshot to make the playoffs, even more so without Ansah.It's not clear where Ansah and the Lions go from here. Detroit drafted Ansah with the fifth overall pick in 2013, and he has been an effective pass rusher ever since. He had a career-high 14陆 sacks in 2015 Jurrell Casey Jersey , and although he managed only two the following season, he bounced back with 12 in 2017.But this season, he left the opener in September with a shoulder injury and missed the next six games. He had three sacks in his first four games after returning, but he was hurt again against Arizona.a1f6f1fd3bf6066880d28a935a01bd5c.jpgCoach Matt Patricia held a conference call Tuesday Cheap Rashaan Evans Jersey , but it was before the team announced Ansah's move to IR.Roberts has played in eight games this season, starting two. He has nine catches for 100 yards and three touchdowns. [UPDATE]- Gordon is headed to the Patriots per Ian Rapoport:In case you weren’t paying attention Saturday night, the Browns announced that they were going to waive Josh Gordon today. There are obviously a lot of moving parts with Gordon’s situation, but apparently the Browns decided that it was finally time to move on. That’s never an easy decision with a player that is as talented as Gordon is.Well now it appears likely that the Browns will trade him per Ian Rapoport:Josina Anderson is reporting that 8-10 teams have inquired and that some teams want it kept quiet that they are in the mix:Gordon has a skill set that would help the Titans http://www.titanscheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-josh-kline-jersey , but that is basically the same thing as saying that water is wet. Skill set has never been the question with Gordon, however. I would be really surprised if the Titans end up being the team that acquires Gordon. He just doesn’t seem to fit the type of player that Jon Robinson looks for.With that being said, I wouldn’t be upset if they gave up a 5th or 6th round pick to bring Gordon in. What are your feelings on the subject?
