    Wright is inactive Sunday against the Chiefs. With Brandon Pettigrew back in action this week to work with fellow tight end Eric Ebron, Wright is the odd man out at the position for the Lions on Sunday.

    Lions' Tim Wright: Held to one catch against Minnesota

    Wrigth caught one pass off of one target for 13 yards in Sunday's loss to Minnesota. In Eric Ebron's return to the lineup on Sunday Wright was on the field for just four offensive snaps, according to Pro Football Focus, and stayed in as a blocker on three of those plays. New offensive coordinator Jim Bob Cooter has worked on offensive staffs in Indianapolis and Denver that have used multiple tight ends, so there may be hope for Wright - but one would be advised to see it before believing it.

    Lions' Tim Wright: Scores first touchdown of season

    Wright caught three passes off of six targets for 17 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win over Chicago. With Eric Ebron and Brandon Pettigrew out, Wright saw the field on 65 plays on Sunday, 23 more than his previous season high and his six targets were his most since Week 12 of last season. Wright's abilities as a flex tight end have earned him niches in Tampa Bay and New England over the past two seasons, but whether he can have a repeat performance in Week 7 largely depends on whether Eric Ebron recovers from his knee injury before then.

    Lions' Tim Wright: Set to start Sunday's game

    Wright will serve as the Lions' starting tight end in Sunday's game against the Bears. Both Eric Ebron (knee) and Brandon Pettigrew (knee) are inactive Sunday, leaving Wright as the only tight end available for the contest. He's shown the ability to turn in some respectable performances when he worked as the starter in Tampa Bay in the past, immediately putting him on the radar as waiver wire pickup in deeper leagues.

    Tim Wright is Lions' lone healthy tight end heading into Week 6

    With news that Brandon Pettigrew developed a knee injury Saturday, Tim Wright is the lone healthy Lions' tight end for Sunday's game against the Bears, the MLive.com reports. The Lions had already ruled out starter Eric Ebron with a knee injury, and now Pettigrew is questionable for Sunday. Wright, who had three catches for 12 yards last week, is expected to get a significant amount of playing time.

    Lions TE Timothy Wright catches three passes in loss to Arizona

    Lions tight end Timothy Wright caught three passes off of five targets for 12 yards in Sunday's loss to Arizona. Wright, with a skillset resembling that of a jumbo-sized wide receiver, was thought to potentially be in line for a larger role in Detroit's passing game in Eric Ebron's absense. Instead, the Lions threw more to its backs and slot receivers. With no set timetable for Ebron's return, Wright will have more opportunities to emerge in Detroit, but Sunday's game didn't offer much promise.

    Lions TE Eric Ebron could be out three weeks due to knee injury

    Lions tight end Eric Ebron (knee) told ESPN he could be out up to three weeks. Ebron's chances of playing this week probably are not good, but it does not appear he will require surgery for his setback. He could return to action before the end of October. Brandon Pettigrew (hamstring), assuming he is healthy, and Timothy Wright will handle the tight end duties for the Lions until Ebron is able to return.

    Lions TE Tim Wright to get more action in Week 2

    Lions tight end Brandon Pettigrew will be out for Sunday's game, leaving tight end Tim Wright as the team's only tight end aside from Eric Ebron, Josh Katzenstein of The Detroit News reports. After being inactive in Week 1, Wright figures to make his debut for Detroit on Sunday. A very different player than Pettigrew, who is more of a blocker, it will be interesting to see whether Wright will get some opportunities flexed out while Ebron plays a more traditional Y role.

    Buccaneers TE Timothy Wright ready to contribute

    Buccaneers tightend Timothy Wright is excited to be back in Tampa and is ready to take on a contributing role with the team, per The Tampa Tribune.

"I'm pretty happy about (the opportunity) to step in and contribute right away," Wright said. Buccaneers coach Lovie Smith said the move to bring back Wright, who caught five touchdowns as a rookie for the team, makes the Bucs a better team. "It was an easy decision to make on Tim," Bucs coach Lovie Smith said. "We liked Tim (last year). We decided to go in a different direction, but now we're a stronger football team with Tim on our team. It's good to have him back."
