Packers' Rick Wagner: Joining Packers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wagner agreed to sign with the Packers on Monday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

It's a strong hint that the Packers don't expect to re-sign right tackle Bryan Bulaga, who profiles as one of the top linemen on the free-agent market. Wagner was once viewed similarly, but he was a bit of a disappointment in his three seasons with the Lions, eventually leading to his release last week. The 30-year-old likely will start at right tackle for the Packers, though it's possible he operates as a swing tackle or guard if the team does end up locking down Bulaga.

The 30-year-old, who the Ravens took in the fifth round of the 2013 NFL Draft, originally joined the Lions back in 2017, when he inked a five-year, $47.5 million free-agent deal with the team.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lions' Ricky Wagner: Not expected to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wagner (ankle) is not expected to play Sunday against the Bears, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Wagner sprained his ankle in Week 14 and subsequently missed the Lions' Week 15 victory over Tampa Bay. The Wisconsin product checks in as Pro Football Focus' fifth-highest graded right tackle, so his continued absence would represent a downgrade for the Lions' entire offense, especially in the pass-blocking department, the area in which Wagner has been most effective.

Lions' Ricky Wagner: Ruled out Week 14
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wagner (ankle, back) has been ruled out for Sunday's game in Tampa Bay.

Wagner didn't practice this week after spraining his ankle and also sustaining some sort of back injury during the Lions' Week 13 loss to the Ravens. This will mark his first absence all season. Either Corey Robinson or Brian Mihalik should start at right tackle in his place, depending on how Detroit shuffles its offensive line to accommodate for Wagner's loss.
