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 (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.

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.
Thu, Aug 8, 2013 05:34:00 PM confirms third-round OG Larry Warford is the "early favorite" to replace Stephen Peterman at right guard.

We'd call him the heavy favorite. After drawing interest from the Rams at No. 30, Warford will be competing with journeyman Dylan Gandy and 2012 practice-squader Rodney Austin. Something will have gone wrong if Warford doesn't win.
Mon, May 27, 2013 08:45:00 AM

Updating a previous item, Lions rookie RG Larry Warford injured his neck at Saturday's minicamp practice, but returned to action on Sunday.

"It gave everybody a little bit of scare when anybody goes down, but he bounced back from it quickly," coach Jim Schwartz said. "He could have gone through everything, but we limited him to just individual today." Warford will be fine for OTAs when they kick off next week.
