Detroit Lions rookie defensive end Ziggy Ansah returned to practice Thursday after suffering a concussion on Aug. 25, according to Lions beat reporter Tim Twentyman. Ansah missed 11 days of team drills after being hit in the head during a non-padded session.

Ansah said this was the first concussion he's ever had and that he's "just glad to be back on the field." While making his first public comments about his concussion, Ansah denied to disclose what doctors told him after he suffered the injury during practice. Ansah said he is hoping to play as soon as he can.

The Lions selected Ansah with the fifth overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft.
