Lions' Frank Ragnow: Clears protocol
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ragnow was listed as a full participant in Wednesday's practice, an indication that he has cleared league protocol and is expected to dress Thursday against Chicago.

Ragnow missed last week with a concussion, but all signs point to him returning to Detroit's lineup Thursday. An official decision on his status will come an hour before kickoff.

Lions' Frank Ragnow: Ruled out
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ragnow (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Redskins.

No surprise here, as Ragnow was unable to practice all week. He will need to clear the league's concussion protocol before he can return to the field. His next opportunity to suit up will be on Thanksgiving versus the Bears.

Lions' Frank Ragnow: Placed in concussion protocol
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ragnow is being evaluated for a concussion following Sunday's loss to the Cowboys, Michael Rothstein of reports.

It's unclear when and how Ragnow picked up the injury, but he'll land in the league's mandated concussion protocol. It's likely Ragnow's practice availability next week will shed some light on his progression through the protocol. If he's unable to suit up in Week 12, Beau Benzschawel could be in line to see the start at center.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lions' Frank Ragnow: Won't be placed on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ragnow (ankle) will not be placed on injured reserve, but could end up missing regular-season time, Kyle Meinke of reports.

Ragnow evidently sprained his ankle in Friday's preseason contest in which he was carted off. Considering the lack of information regarding Ragnow's injury, it's entirely possible the interior lineman could wind up missing time into the regular season.

Lions' Frank Ragnow: Carried off field with leg injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ragnow suffered an apparent right leg injury during Friday's preseason game against the Bills, Albert Breer of reports.

Ragnow needed to be helped off the field and was unable to put weight on his right leg. The 2018 first-rounder was eventually put on a cart. While it's not certain he suffered a long-term injury, Ragnow's potential absence would be a significant blow to the fantasy prospects of anyone in the Lions offense, namely Kerryon Johnson.

Lions' Frank Ragnow: Shifting to center
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ragnow has been lining up at center from the start of OTAs, Justin Rogers of the Detroit News reports.

Center is a tough position for an inexperienced rookie and the Lions likely had that in mind by playing Ragnow at guard in 2018. The first-rounder finally appears to be transitioning to the position they envisioned him at all along and his development will be critical for the success of running back Kerryon Johnson and company.
