Lions first injury report for the NFC Championship week: 4 players held out

USA Today

The Detroit Lions held a walkthrough in lieu of practice on Wednesday. It was the first day of preparation for Detroit’s trip to San Francisco to face the 49ers in the NFC Championship game.

With it being a walkthrough, the Lions coaching staff provided estimated participation reports for the players dealing with injuries. Four Lions players were designated as out from practice:

LG Jonah Jackson (knee)

TE Sam LaPorta (knee)

WR Kalif Raymond (knee)

C Frank Ragnow (ankle, toe, knee, back)

Jackson and Raymond were expected to be out, and neither is anticipated to be able to play against the 49ers. LaPorta is still dealing with the hyperextended knee and bone bruise he suffered in the Week 18 win over the Vikings. He has played both games since.

Then there’s Ragnow. Typically, the “rest” designation is listed along with the toe issue. But this time, he’s rendered out with four separate injuries. Ragnow’s toughness is the stuff of legends, but it bears watching if he can practice at all during the rest of the week.

Linebacker Alex Anzalone (shoulder and ribs) and wide receiver Josh Reynolds (ribs) were both designated as limited participants. EDGE James Houston was deemed a full participant with his ankle issue.
