Ziggy Ansah could reportedly miss at least first month of season
Free agent defensive end Ziggy Ansah finally found a home on Wednesday when he agreed to a one-year deal with the Seattle Seahawks, and we now have a better idea of why he remained on the market for so long.
Ansah has been recovering from shoulder surgery, and he was initially expected to be cleared by mid-August. However, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that he could miss the first month of the regular season or more.
New Seahawks’ DE Ziggy Ansah still is recovering from shoulder surgery that is expected to keep him out of training camp or longer; some league sources believe Ansah could miss the first month of this season, at least.

Ansah will turn 30 later this month, and he has had seasons with 14.5 and 12 sacks. He played under the franchise tag with the Detroit Lions last year, so there’s no question he can be a difference-maker when healthy. While his shoulder is obviously a big question mark, the Seahawks may end up getting a steal if he shows no ill effects from the injury after missing a handful of games.
