ALLEN PARK, Mich. (Ap) — the de­troit Li­ons have des­ig­nated de­fen­sive end Ziggy An­sah as their fran­chise player.

the Li­ons an­nounced the de­ci­sion tues­day. An­sah, a first-round draft pick in 2013, has 44 sacks in five years with de­troit, in­clud­ing 12 this past sea­son.

An­sah hasn’t played a full 16 games since the 2015 sea­son, but while his health has been an is­sue, he can still be an elite pass rusher. He had three sacks in a game three times last sea­son, against the Gi­ants, Ben­gals and pack­ers.
