The hits keep coming for the Detroit Lions on the injury front. The team has already lost several players to season-ending injuries, meanwhile others -- like Frank Ragnow -- are already banged up.

Detroit's latest update on Ragnow is disappointing news.

Frank Ragnow Injury

Ragnow has officially been placed on the Injured Reserve list. That will keep him out for a minimum of three weeks while he nurses a turf toe injury that he suffered against the Chicago Bears.

This is a serious blow to a team still looking for its first win of the season. The offensive line was already down Taylor Decker due to a finger injury, and this takes away another keep contributor from the offensive line.

Quarterback Jared Goff could be in for a long day against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 5. Minnesota's defense is currently recording the fourth-most sacks per game (3.2) to begin the year.

The Lions are massive 8.5-point underdogs ahead of their Week 5 matchup, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
