Fall behind (3)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

lag

'fall behind' is the definition.
(synonyms)

This is the entire clue.

(Other definitions for lag that I've seen before include "An old one is a convict" , "Wrap water-pipes; fall behine" , "Convict (slang)" , "Wrap to protect from frost" , "Drop behind" .)

I've seen this clue in the L.A. Times Magazine, the L.A. Times Sunday, The Times, the King Feature Syndicate, The Sun and The Guardian.
