Detroit Lions add key starter to Week 4 Injury Report

When the Detroit Lions square off against the Dallas Cowboys this coming Sunday, they may have to do so without a couple of key players.

Earlier today, it was reported that Ezekiel Ansah (shoulder) missed practice completely for a second consecutive day, putting him in jeopardy of missing yet another game.

Now, the Lions have released their injury report and starting guard, Frank Ragnow (knee) was limited in Thursday’s practice.












Joining Ansah and Ragnow on the Injury Report are Michael Roberts who did not practice at all while T.J. Lang and Andrew Donnal were both limited.


CONFIRMED: Former Detroit Lions great Calvin Johnson returns home

For nine seasons, former Lions great Calvin Johnson called Detroit his home. As a member of the Detroit Lions, Johnson racked up 11,619 receiving yards and 84 total touchdowns in his career. Let’s face it, he was unstoppable when he was healthy and he certainly earned the nickname, “Megatron.”

But following the 2015 season, Johnson made the decision to hang up his cleats and to walk away from the game of football. His body had been beaten and battered long enough and he was content to move on, despite still being one of the most dominant receivers in the game.

Since leaving, there have been numerous reports about bad blood between Johnson and the Detroit Lions. So it came as a bit of a surprise when multiple fans claimed to have seen Calvin at Ford Field for the Lions home opener on Monday Night Football against the Jets.

Now, those rumors have been confirmed by Lions president Rod Wood.

In a recent piece in the Associated Press which focused on Barry Sanders, Wood revealed that Calvin Johnson was, in fact, in attendance for the Jets’ game.
