With Detroit Lions lean on tight ends, Brandon Pettigrew plays through injury

DETROIT -- Brandon Pettigrew came to the sideline and spiked his helmet in frustration. Not because of his performance, but his health. The veteran Detroit Lions tight end was leaned upon heavily in Sunday's game against the New Orleans Saints,...

Detroit Lions — Calvin Johnson, Eric Ebron out; Saints' Jimmy Graham active

DETROIT — Calvin Johnson will not play today against the Saints. The Detroit Lions wide receiver had been listed as questionable on Friday’s injury report. This is the second straight game Johnson has missed with an ankle sprain. The Lions’ offense will also be without tight end Eric Ebron who tweaked a hamstring in Wednesday’s practice and didn’t practice on Thursday and Friday. He was doubtful for the game. Tight end Jordan Thompson was signed from the practice squad to fill in at tight end where Joe Fauria (ankle) remains out. Brandon Pettigrew said Thompson, who will be...

Lions injury report: Eric Ebron misses practice

The Detroit Lions are down to one healthy tight end with Eric Ebron missing practice on Thursday. The Detroit Lions are running out of healthy tight ends. Actually, Brandon Pettigrew is the only healthy player left at that position. Joseph Fauria has been out for nearly a month now with an ankle injury, and Eric Ebron missed practice on Thursday with a hamstring injury. Ebron was limited on Wednesday, but the fact that he missed practice on Thursday is concerning. On a positive note, both wide receiver Jeremy Ross and defensive end Ziggy Ansah returned to practice on Thursday after being...

Detroit Lions — Eric Ebron does not practice, leaving one healthy tight end

ALLEN PARK — It could be interesting at tight end for the Detroit Lions on Sunday. Rookie Eric Ebron did not practice on Thursday. He had worked full-tilt on Wednesday. He tweaked his hamstring on Wednesday per a report on Rotoworld.com. With Joe Fauria out with an ankle injury, that left Brandon Pettigrew as the only healthy tight end. Tight end Jordan Thompson is on the practice squad and could be moved up. Calvin Johnson (ankle) also did not practice which was not a surprise. Defensive end Ziggy Ansah (toe) who was out on Wednesday, returned to practice today along with wide...
