Lions RG Larry Warford's starting job will be "on a short leash" this season.
The 65th overall pick in the 2013 draft, Warford looked like a future All Pro his first two seasons before enduring an injury-riddled third campaign. Now entering his contract year, Warford has a lot at stake. He's 25 years old (in June) with dominant drive-blocking potential and will get paid handsomely if his season goes well.

Lions RG Larry Warford suffered a concussion in the team's Thanksgiving win over the Eagles.

Detroit plays its next game next Thursday night against the Packers. When healthy this season, Warford has been a disappointment and a major part of the Lions' run-game woes. Rookie LG Laken Tomlinson has been even worse.

Lions RG Larry Warford (ankle) is probable for Week 6.

His return will shift Manny Ramirez back to left guard and rookie Laken Tomlinson back to the bench. With the offensive line getting healthy, Detroit has to find a way to get the running game working.

Lions RG Larry Warford (ankle) is listed as questionable for Week 4.

Warford aggravated his high-ankle sprain in last week's loss. He practiced fully on Thursday and Friday, but was downgraded to limited Saturday. Lions beat writers aren't expecting Warford to play. Manny Ramirez will move to the right side if Warford sits, with rookie Laken Tomlinson starting at left guard.

Lions RG Larry Warford aggravated his ankle injury Week 3 against the Broncos.

Lions RG Larry Warford (ankle) is expected to return to action in Week 2.

Warford suffered a high ankle sprain in Detroit's second preseason game. He missed Week 1, but will be all systems go Sunday at Minnesota. A powerful road grader, Warford's return is good news for Ameer Abdullah's outlook.

Lions RG Larry Warford (ankle) expects to practice this week.

Warford has been sidelined since suffering a high-ankle sprain in the Lions' second preseason game. He said he was still dealing with soreness in the ankle, but added, "It's coming along pretty well." Even if Warford is able to get in a couple practices this week, it is possible the Lions give him another week to get completely healthy. Manny Ramirez played well at right guard Week 1.

Lions RG Larry Warford suffered a high-ankle sprain in the Lions' second preseason game.

Warford is out the rest of the preseason at least and should be considered questionable for Week 1. With Warford sidelined, the Lions could decide to cross-train rookie Laken Tomlinson at right guard, the position he played in college. Tomlinson is currently competing with Manny Ramirez at left guard.
Sat, Aug 22, 2015 09:38:00 AM

Lions RG Larry Warford (knee) is not expected to play in Sunday's Wild Card game against the Cowboys.

"We'll miss him," were OC Joe Lombardi's words on Thursday. The Lions are getting back C Dominic Raiola from suspension, but will have to start rookie Travis Swanson at right guard in a playoff game. They're lucky Henry Melton won't play for Dallas, but it's still a concern for Detroit's offense.

Lions RG Larry Warford (knee) is listed as probable for Week 14 against the Bucs.

Lions RG Larry Warford was forced from Detroit's Week 10 game against the Dolphins with a left knee injury.

Lions RG Larry Warford said he wore down late last season.

Warford felt the rookie wall. "Looking back on my last three games and comparing it to my first four or five, the difference in explosion was significant," he said. Warford is focusing on taking care of his body this offseason, and the thought of him getting better should terrify the rest of the league. He was among the best guards in the entire NFL last season.

Lions second-round pick Larry Warford has won the starting right guard job.

As expected. Warford started training camp slow -- he was behind journeyman Dylan Gandy for awhile -- but finished fast and will book end LG Rob Sims to open the season. The Lions' tackles are LT Riley Reiff and RT Jason Fox. The center is Dominic Raiola. The top reserve will be swing OT Corey Hilliard.

Lions rookie RG Larry Warford has struggled in pass protection in camp.

It's been "particularly noticeable" against Nick Fairley and Ndamukong Suh, although that's expected. More concerning, Warford admits his confidence has been "rattled" and he still hasn't overtaken journeyman Dylan Gandy to start.
