Detroit Lions defensive end Ezekiel Ansah underwent an MRI on his shoulder, revealing that he didn't suffer a significant injury and the team is hopeful he can play Sunday against the San Francisco 49ers, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter.
Ansah left Monday's contest against the New York Jets with a shoulder injury and was later ruled out of the contest. He recorded four tackles and a sack before leaving the game.
The Lions placed the franchise tag on Ansah, which is valued at $17.5 million for the 2018 season. Ansah recorded 12 sacks in 14 games during the 2017 season.
