Ngata (shoulder) is questionable for Sunday's game against Houston, Time Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Ngata missed last week's game against the Redskins and was limited in practice this past week. A return Sunday would put him at the early end of his initial 2-3 week timetable for recovery.

Ngata (shoulder) will not play Sunday against the Redskins, Kyle Meinke of MLive.com reports.

Ngata (shoulder) is expected to be out 2-to-3 weeks, Ian Rapoport of NFL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Ngata suffered from the injury in Sunday's game against the Eagles, and it ends up being a huge blow for Detroit's defense, as they will be without their top defensive tackle for at least the next two games. Expect backups Khyri Thornton and A'Shawn Robinson to see more time on the field in Ngata's absence.

Ngata suffered a shoulder injury against the Eagles and is questionable to return, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

EDGE Analysis

Ngata is highly unlikely to return. Khyri Thornton and A'Shawn Robinson will consequentially see additional playing time.

Ngata has signed a two-year deal to remain with the Lions, ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Ngata will thus continue to be a key part of the Lions' interior defensive line, with his arrival in a trade with the Ravens last March having occurred in the wake of the departure of Ndamukong Suh. With 24 tackles and 2.5 sacks in 14 games this past season, Ngata is off the IDP radar in all but the deepest of fantasy formats.

Ngata (calf) is listed as active Sunday against the Vikings, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

EDGE Analysis

Ngata will prop up the Lions' run defense for the first time since Week 4, but his IDP utility remains negligible, as he's recorded a mere six tackles (four solo) in four games in his new clime.

Ngata (calf) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Vikings.

EDGE Analysis

Ngata isn't worthy of consideration in IDP formats, but his return should help a Detroit run defense that won't have fellow starting DT Tyrunn Walker (knee) for the rest of the season.

Ngata is dealing with a calf injury and has been ruled out for the Lions' Week 6 tilt with the Bears, MLive.com's Justin Rogers reports.

EDGE Analysis

With the lane-clogging Ngata unavailable after failing to practice this week due to a calf strain, the Lions could have difficulty containing Matt Forte and the Bears' ground game. Ngata is expected to be replaced in the starting lineup by Jermelle Cudjo.
