Detroit Lions center Frank Ragnow remained in his post against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday despite a broken throat.
Injured in the first quarter, Ragnow could hardly speak. He asked his quarterbacks Matthew Stafford and Chase Daniel to designate the formations before the games.
“It’s pretty impressive what he was able to do,” said Daniel, who himself took over from Stafford when the latter broke a rib, according to ESPN. We didn’t seem to be disabled, and it’s pretty amazing when your throat is fractured and you used to refer to games. ”
Ragnow, who hasn’t missed a game, didn’t allow a quarterback sack.
“It was funny at the time. It’s no longer funny now knowing the severity of the injury, Daniel conceded. The guy played the rest of the game, and I don’t think he allowed a single tackle in a quarter. It’s impressive. Really. “
