Detroit Lions tight end Tim Wright caught one pass off of two targets for 26 yards in Monday's loss to Seattle Redhawks . He may feature more heavily in the offense in Week 5 as Eric Ebron is unlikely to play against Arizona, ESPN reports.
Wright split the seam during Detroit's ultimately unsuccessful closing drive for his first catch as a Lion and there may be more where that came from. While Ebron does not have any structural damage in his knee, he may be on the shelf for a week or two.
Expect for Wright to see Ebron's share of targets in the meantime as Brandon Pettigrew , who has been hampered by a hamstring injury, is known more for his blocking than his hands.
Indiana Pacers guard George Hill rolled his ankle Tuesday, but said he's fine going forward, reports The Indianapolis Star.
Hill had a slight limp after Tuesday's preseason game, but it doesn't sound like anything that will affect his status for the start of the season.
Minnesota Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph caught two passes off of four targets for seven yards in Sunday's loss to Denver Pioneers .
Rudolph is second on the team with 14 catches on 22 targets, ranking 13th among league tight ends in both categories. Rudolph has thus far failed to deliver on the promise of his 2012 season and with the Vikings apparently set on making Adrian Peterson the bread and butter of their offense again, is not being featured heavily enough to warrant a weekly start.
