Lions-Rams inactives: Ezekiel Ansah returns, Larry Warford is OUT

The Lions starting offensive line will be broken up, while they also get their best pass rusher back this week.

With Aaron Donald coming to town, the Detroit Lions injury report looked especially worrisome. Both starting guards, Larry Warford and Laken Tomlinson, were listed as questionable on Friday’s report, after both players missed practices this week. The news is good for Tomlinson as he will play, but Warford is out.

As reported earlier, the Lions will be missing their second and third string running backs in Theo Riddick and Dwayne Washington. The Lions are already without their starting running back Ameer Abdullah for the foreseeable future, as the star running back is on injured reserve.

Elsewhere, Ezekiel Ansah is officially back after missing three straight games with a high ankle sprain. His linemate, A’Shawn Robinson, who was also labeled as questionable for the game, will also play. With Haloti Ngata out this week, Robinson could be in for a much bigger role against the Rams.

On Los Angeles’ side, despite early reports on the contrary, Robert Quinn will not play against the Lions. However, Michael Brockers and William Hayes are not listed as inactives and will likely play today.
