    Lions' Brandon Pettigrew: Placed on injured reserve

    Pettigrew (knee) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports. After Pettigrew sustained a torn ACL Sunday at St. Louis, the move is merely a bookkeeping measure by the Lions intended to open up a spot on the 53-man roster. The organization will use it to sign a tight end, Bear Pascoe, who is known for his blocking.

    Lions' Brandon Pettigrew: Torn ACL

    Pettigrew suffered a torn ACL during Sunday's game against the Rams, reports. Pettigrew's rookie season in 2009 was ended prematurely by a torn ACL, so the 30-year-old's latest knee injury Sunday is something he's experienced before. No matter, Pettigrew won't be pleased by having his season ended early, and his seven catches (on 15 targets) for 67 yards and one touchdown this season evidence his steeply-declining production. With Pettigrew out, the Lions will hope even more that second-year tight end Eric Ebron can capitalize on added reps.

    Lions' Brandon Pettigrew: Exits Sunday's game

    Lions' Brandon Pettigrew: Catches one pass against the Eagles

    Pettigrew caught one pass off of two targets for 21 yards in Thursday's win over Philadelphia. Pettigrew has consistently seen more playing time than fellow tight end Eric Ebron during the Lions' three-game winning streak, finding himself on the field for more snaps in every game and by a total margin of 142 to 106, according to Pro Football Focus. During that same period, Ebron has seen more targets, 11 to seven. Pettigrew is clearly the blocker of the tight end duo, and new offensive coordinator Jim Bob Cooter, perhaps looking for more physicality from the offense, seems to be leaning more and more on him. That extended exposure should not be counted on, however, to deliver much fantasy production.

    Lions' Brandon Pettigrew: Listed as active for Sunday's game

    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.

    Lions' Brandon Pettigrew: Listed as probable

    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.

    Lions' Brandon Pettigrew: Practices in full Thursday

    Pettigrew (elbow) practiced in full Thursday, Kyle Meinke of 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.

    Lions' Brandon Pettigrew: Limited in practice Wednesday

    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 TE Brandon Pettigrew down for Week 7

    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.

    Lions TE Eric Ebron practiced in full Thursday

    Lions tight end Eric Ebron practiced in full Thursday. Despite limited practices last week, his injured left knee forced a second absence in a row. However, with a full showing in his back pocket, he's seemingly on course for active status for the first time since Week 4. As long as he maintains his current level of health, he'll act as the Lions' No. 1 tight end due to Brandon Pettigrew's bout with a sore knee.
