Detroit Lions sign TE Kellen Davis

ALLEN PARK — The Detroit Lions have signed tight end Kellen Davis, who played at Michigan State. He worked out for the Lions last week. The Lions are incredibly thin at tight end. They leave for London tonight to play the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday. Joe Fauria (ankle) and Eric Ebron (hamstring) did not play on Sunday. It’s unclear if either will be ready to play in London. Fauria has missed four games with an ankle sprain. It was the first game out for Ebron who injured his hamstring Wednesday in practice. Brandon Pettigrew played the entire game against the Saints, but was on the...

Lions sign Kellen Davis, release Jerome Couplin

Lions sign Kellen Davis, release Jerome Couplin

In advance of their trip to London, the Detroit Lions signed tight end Kellen Davis and released safety Jerome Couplin. Going into Sunday's game, the Detroit Lions had to promote Jordan Thompson from the practice squad to add extra depth at tight end. Joseph Fauria and Eric Ebron were banged up, so Brandon Pettigrew was the only healthy tight end. On Sunday, Pettigrew actually suffered an injury of his own, leaving Thompson as the only healthy tight end on the roster. To combat this lack of depth before they head to London on Monday night, the Lions signed tight end Kellen Davis, who worked...

If needed, Detroit Lions prepared to add a TE for game in London

The Lions don't know the availability of Eric Ebron and Joseph Fauria, and with Brandon Pettigrew hobbled after playing the Saints, the Lions might need to add a tight end for the trip to London.

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

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...
