With injury news coming out every day unsettlingly, we’re tracking all the major takeaways from every team’s camp, be it good or bad, and what that could mean for each franchise heading into the season.
Keeping things going today, we examine all 32 teams’ training camps to date, continuing things with the NFC North.
Detroit Lions Per the Detroit Free Press, first-round offensive lineman Frank Ragnow has worked primarily at left guard during training camp.
The former Arkansas star was selected with the 20th overall pick of the draft after he finished his final college season with a 93.7 overall grade, which led all centers in the nation for the second-straight campaign.
The early reports on Ragnow’s switch to left guard have been positive and if his college production translates to the NFL level, the Lions may well have found the next great pass-blocking guard.
The third-year linebacker performed really well in 2017 and ended the campaign with a career-high 75.7 defensive grade, which was good for 16th among 85 qualifying players at the position.
The Packers will especially miss his production against the run, as he produced 30 run stops on his 269 run defense snaps last year, which resulted in the league’s fifth-best run stop percentage.
Minnesota Vikings According to reports, second-year running back Dalvin Cook is “ahead of schedule” in his rehab from the ACL injury that cost him the majority of his rookie season.
