Detroit Lions center Frank Ragnow apparently isn’t going to let injuries to his knee, ankle, toe and back keep him out of Sunday’s NFC Championship Game against the San Francisco 49ers.

He’s been listed on the injury report with those ailments this week and missed practice sessions Wednesday and Thursday. But head coach Dan Campbell told reporters Friday that Ragnow will be on the field Sunday in Santa Clara, Calif.

“He’s good,” Campbell said before practice on Friday. “You know Frank. Frank’s doing well. And Frank will be ready to go. I mean, you’re not going to hold him out of this one. And he gets better every day. So, he’ll be ready.”

Ragnow, 27, returned to practice Friday with a sleeve on his left leg. He suffered a sprained knee and ankle in the NFC divisional game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last weekend but didn’t miss a snap.

The Lions selected Ragnow with the 20th overall pick of the 2018 NFL Draft. Since then, he’s appeared in 80 games (all starts), including 15 this season. Injuries limited the three-time Pro Bowl selection to just four games in 2021.

Guard Jonah Jackson (knee) and wide receiver Kalif Raymond (knee) remained out of practice on Friday and aren’t likely to play.
