Lions lose defender Frank Ragnow for remainder of 2021-22 season

Detroit Lions defensive line player Frank Ragnow will undergo foot surgery ending his participation in the 2021-22 NFL season.

This player was the Lions’ first pick in the 2018 draft and is one of the most efficient regulars on the team. In his 4-year career he has a Pro Bowl presence.

Ragnow played four games this season with Detroit’s second unit.

Going 0-5 in their first five outings of the season, the Lions lose a key piece of their defense and it will make their season even more difficult.
