Falls behind (4)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

lags

'falls behind' is the definition.
('lag' can be a synonym of 'fall behind')

This is all the clue.

(Other definitions for lags that I've seen before include "Drag's one's feet" , "Fails to keep up" , "Slows down and falls behind" , "Convicts" , "Dawdles" .)

I've seen this clue in the USA Today and the Sydney Morning Herald.
