Does Detroit Lions first-round pick Ziggy Ansah have a concussion?

If so, Coach Jim Schwartz isn't admitting to anything in that regard when asked about the rookie defensive end leaving practice Sunday following pre-practice stretch.

“I don’t have any comment on anybody’s physical condition,” Schwartz told the Detroit Free Press. “We don’t have to give any injury reports right now and anything going into the season, particularly this late, is a competitive thing. Unless it’s somebody that’s long term or somebody that’s had surgery, I’ll let you know on those but otherwise we’ll just go with the injury reports.”

Ansah took a hit from Leroy Harris in Saturday's non-padded practice and momentarily dropped to one knee from the block by the veteran guard. On Sunday, Ansah went in after being unable to finish stretches, accompanied by two trainers.
