DETROIT, Mich. (KNWA/KFTA) — Former Razorback and current Detroit Lions center Frank Ragnow suffered a fractured throat in the first quarter of Sunday’s game against the Green Bay Packers, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.

Ragnow, who was selected 20th overall by the Lions in the 2018 NFL Draft, finished the game but could miss this week’s game against the Titans, Rapoport tweeted on Wednesday.

According to a tweet from Dave Birkett, a Lions beat writer for the Detroit Free Press, Ragnow, a three-year starter at Arkansas, isn’t supposed to talk right now, but his airway and breathing are fine.

The Lions are working to determine how much time Ragnow will miss, Birkett said.
