Lions injury report: Ragnow, Swift among 5 sitting out Wednesday’s practice

·1 min read

The first practice injury report of the week from the Detroit Lions in advance of Sunday’s Week 2 matchup with the Washington Commanders could be a little scary for Lions fans.

Starting center Frank Ragnow and top running back D’Andre Swift both sat out Wednesday’s practice. So did starting left tackle Taylor Decker, as well as guard Tommy Kraemer and defensive tackle Michael Brockers.

Swift is coming off the best game of his career, a 144-yard rushing effort that has him nominated for the FedEx Ground Player of the Week.

Ragnow missed practice time last week with a groin injury. He played through the pain in Week 1, and his absence on Wednesday should be considered precautionary. Decker was spotted at practice with a compression sleeve on his lower leg. He did not have an injury status last week and played the entire game against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Brockers has typically been given veteran off days in practices.

The full injury report from the Lions from Wednesday:

Okwara and Melifonwu both missed Week 1 with their ongoing injuries. Jackson played every snap on Sunday and played well.
