For T.J. Lang, the benefits of returning from another concussion outweigh risks

ALLEN PARK -- This wasn't T.J. Lang's first concussion. It wasn't his second, or even his third. So when the Detroit Lions guard woke up last week Wednesday, still fatigued from a game two days before, he knew something might...

ALLEN PARK -- Taylor Decker is a full go Sunday against Chicago, and so is T.J. Lang. And so is Kenny Golladay, for that matter. With only running back Dwayne Washington out, the Detroit Lions will have their entire offensive...

Lions-Bears injury report: Ezekiel Ansah misses 5th-straight practice

Lions-Bears injury report: Ezekiel Ansah misses 5th-straight practice

It’s not looking good for the Lions’ best pass rusher. For the second day in a row, and fifth consecutive practice, Detroit Lions defensive end Ezekiel Ansah sat out. The Lions premier pass rusher has been sidelined with a back injury for the past week and a half, and his chances of playing this week look dimmer and dimmer. On Wednesday, the Lions added Kasim Edebali to their defensive line, but without Ansah, Detroit remains perilously thin at the position. The rest of the Lions injury report remained the same: Dwayne Washington is still out with a hip injury, T.J. Lang was a full...

The 2017 Detroit Lions’ entire starting lineup on offense is healthy, finally

Knock on wood, but the Lions are at full health on offense for the first time this season. With Taylor Decker back in the lineup after his nine-week stint on the Physically Unable to Perform list and T.J. Lang a full participant in Wednesday’s practice, the Detroit Lions are expected to have their projected starting five offensive linemen in the lineup against the Chicago Bears for the first time all season. But Detroit’s outstanding health goes much beyond that, as pointed out by the Detroit Free Press’ Dave Birkett: This Sunday vs. the Bears is the first week the Lions are...

Lions-Bears injury report: Lions offensive line at full health

For the first time this year, the Lions had full participation for their starting offensive linemen. T.J. Lang was a full participant in Wednesday’s practice for the Detroit Lions. Lang missed last week due to a concussion, but his full participation is a good sign Lang is nearly cleared from concussion protocol. It’s looking like Lang will play this week against the Chicago Bears, meaning for the first time all season, the Lions will have all five starting offensive linemen healthy and active on Sunday. It couldn’t come at a better time, as the Bears’ front seven is one of the...

Lions injury updates: T.J. Lang, Jalen Reeves-Maybin return to practice Wednesday

The Lions got two key contributors back at practice on Wednesday. The Detroit Lions are nearing full health as they prepare for the Chicago Bears this week. During Wednesday’s practice they got two key contributors back in the lineup: guard T.J. Lang and rookie linebacker Jalen Reeves-Maybin. Both players missed last week’s game against the Browns. Lang practiced for the first time since developing concussion symptom during last Wednesday’s practice. In Lang’s place, the Lions played recently activated tackle Corey Robinson at right guard. The patchwork offensive line had trouble...

Lions-Browns inactives: Taylor Decker, Kenny Golladay make their return

The Lions finally get their starting left tackle back. The Kenny Golladay Hype Train is back, too. The Detroit Lions released some great news on Saturday, as they announced that both Taylor Decker and Corey Robinson would be activated to the 53-man roster. This meant that they would finally get their starting left tackle back after he suffered a shoulder injury during offseason workouts. Not everything would be sunshine and rainbows when it comes to the offensive line, however. The Lions also announced, through Jim Caldwell, that T.J. Lang had undergone concussion protocol after they...

Lions injury report: T.J. Lang, Jalen Reeves-Maybin OUT vs. Browns; Ansah doubtful

The Lions will be missing a few players on Sunday vs. Browns. The Detroit Lions could be without three key players on Sunday for their game against the Cleveland Browns. For the third straight practice, guard T.J. Lang, linebacker Jalen Reeves-Maybin and defensive end Ezekiel Ansah missed practice completely. Lang and Reeves-Maybin were declared OUT this week by the team on Friday afternoon. Ansah was given the DOUBTFUL designation. Without Lang in the starting lineup, the Lions are likely to start either Emmett Cleary, who started for an injured Lang earlier in the season, or Don Barclay,...

Lions-Browns injury report: Ezekiel Ansah remains out with back injury

The Lions could be without one of their better pass rushers on Sunday. It wasn’t a good day for Detroit Lions injury news on Thursday. After Jim Caldwell dropped the mini-bombshell that T.J. Lang had suffered a concussion and was in the middle of protocol, it was time for practice. Lang was obviously out, having been just 24 hours removed from the first symptoms of his concussion. But the news didn’t get any better on the other side of the ball, where Ezekiel Ansah missed his second straight practice with a new back injury. While Ansah’s 2017 season hasn’t been as productive as...

T.J. Lang is in concussion protocol

Listed as an illness on Wednesday, it appears T.J. Lang is now in concussion protocol. On Wednesday’s initial injury report, T.J. Lang popped up with an “illness” designation that had him limited during practice. Not much was thought of it originally, as illnesses come and go throughout the season. However, during Thursday’s press conference, Jim Caldwell surprisingly gave an update on his situation. According to the Detroit Lions head coach, Lang is actually now suffering from a concussion and is officially in protocol. Caldwell wanted to get ahead of some questions about how they...

T.J. Lang mic’d up vs. Packers is the best

T.J. Lang mic’d up vs. Packers is the best

They should mic up T.J. Lang every week. T.J. Lang spent eight season in Green Bay as a member of the Packers. On Monday, he made his triumphant return to Lambeau for the first time as a Detroit Lion. Though Lang predictably downplayed any animosity towards his former team, the production team over at Lions HQ decided to pin the microphone on him for Week 9’s version of “Sights and Sounds.” That turned out to be an excellent decision: "Will you tell 21 when he scores to celebrate with me?" - @TJLang70 and from #DETvsGB @ThinkFordFirst → https://t.co/1xzSCbH2hk...
