WR Kalif Raymond (knee)
C Frank Ragnow (ankle/toe/back/knee)
LG Jonah Jackson (knee) — expected to miss game
NB Chase Lucas (illness) — Added to the injury report on Thursday
While Raymond continues to get encouraging words about his recovery, he has still not been able to take the field for practice, which is not a great sign for his availability on Sunday.
Ragnow incurred two additional injuries this past game, so an extra day of rest is in order. When speaking to the media on Wednesday, Ragnow said he was feeling better than expected, which is a strong indicator he should be on track to play against the 49ers.
Meanwhile, Jackson is expected to miss this game after needing minor surgery to correct a knee injury suffered against the Bucs.
Lucas has an illness, as do a lot of people this time of year. At this point, it’s unclear if he’ll be available for Sunday’s game, but if he can’t go, the Lions will have to find special teams contributions elsewhere.
TE Sam LaPorta (knee) — upgraded from no practice on Wednesday
WR Josh Reynolds (ribs)
LB Alex Anzalone (shoulder/ribs)
Detroit Lions general manager Brad Holmes has been named the NFL Executive of the Year by the Pro Football Writers of America. Holmes is the very first Lions front office member to win the award, which dates back to 1993.
Holmes is in Year 3 of his reign with the Lions, and 2023 may be his most impressive draft class yet. Both first-round pick Jahmyr Gibbs and second-round pick Sam LaPorta are up for Offensive Rookie of the Year, while he’s gotten significant defensive contributions out of first-round linebacker Jack Campbell and second-round nickel cornerback Brian Branch.
On top of that, Holmes has seen his very first draft class expand into likely the best from the 2021 NFL Draft. Penei Sewell and Amon-Ra St. Brown were named first-team All-Pro this year. Alim McNeill finished in PFF’s top-10 graded interior defensive tackles. Linebacker Derrick Barnes and defensive back Ifeatu Melifonwu had breakout seasons after quiet starts to their young NFL careers.
