Lions DE Ansah bouncing back from mistakes in camp

Tools

ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) — Detroit Lions defensive end Ezekiel "Ziggy" Ansah has learned a lesson early in his NFL career.

If you make a mistake, move on and don't repeat the miscue.

Ansah has been doing just that so far during training camp.

Detroit drafted Ansah fifth overall, counting on the former Brigham Young standout developing into a star despite limited experience. He grew up in Ghana, playing soccer and basketball, before putting football pads on for the first time in 2010.

While Ansah has shown flashes of promise, it's also clear he has work to do. Lions defensive line coach Kris Kocurek put his hands on Ansah during Monday's practice, shifting his hips and moving his left foot to adjust an awkward stance during a drill.
