Field Level Media

Detroit Lions center Frank Ragnow sustained a minor right ankle sprain in Friday night’s loss to the Buffalo Bills, NFL Network reported.

A more serious injury was feared when Ragnow’s leg was rolled over by a Bills player and he subsequently was assisted from the field.

The Free Press reported Saturday that Ragnow is expected to miss only “minimal time” but that he was scheduled to undergo an MRI to confirm the injury.

Ragnow, the No. 20 overall pick of the Lions in 2018, started all 16 games of the season at left guard but is moving to center this season.

There was no update about the condition of middle linebacker Jarrad Davis, who suffered a right leg injury on the second play from scrimmage. He was tripped up by a teammate, linebacker Devon Kennard, as they pursued a Buffalo ball carrier. Davis was helped off the field, then driven to the locker room on a cart.

Lions head coach Matt Patricia was scheduled to speak to the media via conference call later Saturday.
