As if things couldn’t get more deflating for the Detroit Lions following their 0-5 start, they will now have to go the rest of the way without their Pro Bowl center, Frank Ragnow.

It’s bad news for a Lions offensive line that has been banged up for most of the season and has been riddled with major injuries across the board. As Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network notes, Ragnow will have season-ending toe surgery but should be fully ready for the 2022 season.

Despite the 0-5 start, the Lions have emptied the tank each and every week for Dan Campbell and they have two painful losses on field goals as time expired. Justin Tucker of the Baltimore Ravens hit an NFL record 66-yarder against Detroit and Greg Joseph of the Minnesota Vikings hit home a 54-yarder. If not for those two wild game-ending kicks, the Lions would be 2-3.

The offense has already been working without their No. 1 wideout in Tyrell Williams and his replacement, Quintez Cephus, may be out for the year now as well.

Detroit didn’t have a lot of talent on the roster to start with so going through these types of injuries to their key players really piles up fast. The Lions will look to notch their first win of the season when they welcome in the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 6.
