Pettigrew (elbow) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Chiefs in London. The return of Pettigrew, who has recorded three catches for 29 yards in two games to date, bolsters the Lions' TE depth, but as long as Eric Ebron is healthy, Pettigrew is not a high-percentage fantasy play.
Pettigrew (elbow) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Chiefs in London. After returning to a full practice Thursday, Pettigrew is on track to make his third appearance of the season. With Eric Ebron healthy, Pettigrew will mostly be resigned to a blocking role.
Pettigrew (elbow) practiced in full Thursday, Kyle Meinke of MLive.com reports. Pettigrew appears to be building toward his first appearance since Week 5, but his presence behind Eric Ebron on the depth chart doesn't lend itself to a preponderance of targets. In two appearances this season, Pettigrew has managed to corral just three of six passes for 29 yards.
Pettigrew (elbow) was a limited participant at Wednesday's practice, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Pettigrew has already missed a combined five games this season due to hamstring and knee concerns, but his upper body is now the issue for the veteran tight end. If he ends his absence at two games Sunday against the Chiefs in London, he's unlikely to be a factor in the passing attack, as the Lions' top pass-catchers are healthy at the moment.
Lions tight end Brandon Pettigrew (knee) is listed as out for Sunday against the Vikings. Pettigrew will sit for a fifth time in seven games, with his only appearances coming in Weeks 1 and 5. It's a small loss for the Detroit running game, but with Eric Ebron (knee) listed as probable, his limited receiving skills won't be missed.
