    Ragnow (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Bears.

    Ragnow was carted off the field in the Lions' Week 13 win over the Saints after sustaining a knee injury. He wasn't able to participate in practice this week and has been ruled out for Sunday's game.

  • Lions' Frank Ragnow: Listed as full participant

    Ragnow (toe) was given a full participant designation for Detroit's practice estimate Wednesday.

    Ragnow missed the team's Week 8 win against the Raiders with a toe injury but appears to be on track to play against the Chargers on Sunday. The 2018 first-round pick will return to his starting spot at center and look to help open up holes for Jahmyr Gibbs.

  • Lions' Frank Ragnow: Will not debut

    Ragnow (toe) is listed as inactive for Monday's matchup with the Raiders.

    Ragnow has ramped up his preparation recently in hopes of making his season debut. While it appears to be nearing, he will have to wait another week before potentially suiting up. As a result, Graham Glasgow is expected to start at center versus Las Vegas.

  • Lions' Frank Ragnow: Status for Monday up in the air

    Ragnow (calf/toe) is doubtful for Monday's contest against the Raiders, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

    Head coach Dan Campbell noted Saturday that it's "hard to say" whether Ragnow will be able to play or not, but the coach did say that the "good news" was that the center has an additional day to recover because the Lions play Monday night. Birkett notes that Detroit has been giving Ragnow one day off of practice per week to rest a toe injury he has dealt with since the 2021 season. If Ragnow is unable to suit up Monday, Graham Glasgow -- who has started at both guard positions this season -- is expected to shift to center while Kayode Awosika would start at left guard.

  • Lions' Frank Ragnow: Nursing long-term injury

    Ragnow indicated that the toe injury that has impacted his availability each of the past two seasons is a long-term concern, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports. "It's a deal where it's kind of inoperable, so it's something we're trying to navigate," Ragnow said this offseason. "But hopefully it's not going to be anything near the altitude of last year, where it was, like, brutal. There's no healthy tissue left, so it would have to be an experimental procedure to get that done. And that's not something NFL offensive linemen are in the business of (trying)."

    Ragnow suffered an injury in Week 4 of 2021 that was described as "the most severe degree of turf toe," and he missed the rest of the season after undergoing surgery. He suffered the injury again in the 2022 season opener, but he decided against surgery and only needed to miss one game en route to his second career Pro-Bowl nod. While it is possible that the 27-year-old Ragnow can put together another impressive season while playing through a high degree of pain, investors must acknowledge the fact that the literal and figurative centerpiece of Detroit's heralded offensive line carries a high degree of injury risk.
