    The saga of Ezekiel Ansah’s frustrating bouts with injuries just continues to get worse. After a week of practicing in pads , albeit in a limited fashion, Ansah was completely absent from Wednesday practice for Cowboys week.At this point, we don’t know if Ansah suffered a setback, is dealing with a new injury or was missing from Wednesday’s practice due to an unrelated issue, but smart money is on an injury. Initially, Ansah’s shoulder issue was considered minor, and there were even reports that he may not miss a single game. Things continued to look positive last week, when Ansah strapped on the shoulder pads during practice and appeared to have full mobility with his upper body. But Ansah was a somewhat surprising inactive on Sunday night and that left the Lions having to play Romeo Okwara for 83 percent of the defensive snaps.Ansah’s health was the biggest question standing between him and a huge contract extension this offseason Cheap Matthew Stafford Jersey , and the Detroit Lions were just not confident enough in it to invest long-term. Instead, the Lions opted to a safer, but expensive, franchise tag.Unfortunately, Ansah health has remained a big issue. He missed significant time in training camp after tweaking his hamstring in a conditional drill. Then just one half into the regular season, Ansah suffered a shoulder injury and has not seen the field since. Wednesday’s injury report—out at 4 p.m. ET—will give us more information about Ansah’s condition, but for now, the outlook is bleak.Cowboys fans are panicking Cheap Darius Slay Jr Jersey , think Lions will win on Sunday It’s not often that the opposing fanbase thinks a Detroit Lions team with a losing record is going to beat their own on any given week. However, that’s exactly what’s happening in Week 4 as the Lions head to Dallas as a three-point underdog to face the Cowboys.Coming off a two-possession win over the Patriots, it’s no surprise that Lions fans are feeling pretty confident about the team, despite the poor performances over the first two weeks. We already knew that they saw the biggest boost in confidence this week, but they’re feeling pretty bold for this week. According to our FanPulse survey, the average Lions fan expects a six-point win for the away team.Cowboys fans, however, are hurting after their decisive loss to the Seahawks last week. Just look at the team’s plummeting confidence: (That’s six percent of fans confident in the team’s direction).As a result of panic in Dallas Youth Kenny Golladay Jersey , they are actually picking the 1-2 Lions—road underdogs—to come out victorious on Sunday. Blogging the Boys FanPulse results indicate that the average Cowboys fan thinks the Lions will win by a single point. It’s a pretty wild turn of events considering where each team’s fan base was last week. Entering Week 3, the Cowboys had a confidence level at 49 percent, while Detroit fans were just at 18. It just goes to show you how reactionary all NFL fanbases can be, especially this early in the season. Who knows where we’ll be a week from now?Want to be a part of these weekly surveys?
