(WXYZ) — Detroit Lions center Frank Ragnow is expected to have season-ending toe surgery, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
The surgery will reportedly guarantee he has full health next season. Ragnow made the pro bowl last season.
Last week, Detroit put Ragnow on IR after he suffered the toe injury in the game against the Bears.
Detroit has had a multitude of injuries, but left tackle Taylor Decker is expected to return to practice this week. The plan is for Decker to stay at left tackle and move rookie Penei Sewell to right tackle.
Detroit and Ragnow agreed to a four-year contract extension in May.
