After An Injury Scare On Tuesday, Graham Glasgow Returned To Practice On Wednesday, But At A New Position.
Graham Glasgow exited Tuesday’s practice with a knee injury. Matt Patricia has not disclosed any details on the injury, but Graham Glasgow returned to practice on Wednesday, indicating that his injury was not serious.
This is very good news for Detroit.
While the Detroit Lions do have depth along the offensive line, losing Graham Glasgow to injury would force a positional reshuffle along the offensive line and force players to move to positions at which they are not as well suited.
While Glasgow’s health is certainly a relief, it forces us to reevaluate how deep the Lions really are on the offensive line. The Detroit Lions have plenty of serviceable talent beyond the starters, the reaction to this particular injury certainly puts in perspective how fragile that group can be.
After returning to practice on Wednesday, starting center Graham Glasgow practiced at guard, and 2019 first round draft pick moved over to center.
My speculation would be that the Lions are practicing Frank Ragnow at center as a precaution for a future injury to Graham Glasgow. I don’t imagine that something changed overnight that caused the Lions coaching staff to make serious changes to their offensive line depth chart. More likely, they are preparing their rookie for what could happen if Glasgow does go down with an injury during the season.
While the forethought is encouraging, it is certainly a situation that Lions fans should hope that they don’t have to see.
For now, the Detroit Lions offensive line remains intact and Graham Glasgow appears to be healthy and ready to go. It would appear that should Glasgow go down with an injury, the Lions intend to move Ragnow to center. This is the biggest takeaway from the latest injury scare at training camp.
