Allen Park — The Lions have ruled out guard T.J. Lang and linebacker Jalen Reeves-Maybin, while listing defensive end Ziggy Ansah as doubtful for the team’s upcoming game against the Cleveland Browns.
Lang suffered the concussion against the Packers on Monday, but symptoms didn’t show up until Wednesday’s practice. He missed a game earlier in the season with a back injury and was replaced by Emmett Cleary. That’s a possibility, but so is Don Barclay, who signed with the Lions last week.

Reeves-Maybin’s ankle injury comes at an unfortunate time for the rookie. He had started carving out a role in the defense, playing more than 20 snaps in consecutive games, but was limited to nine against Green Bay.
As for Ansah, the back injury is new this week. He missed all of training camp with a knee issue, and has been limited in practice all season, but that injury is no longer listed on the report as of this week.
Wide receiver Kenny Golladay and safety Don Carey are questionable.
