Ebron (ankle/knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Redskins, Kyle Meinke of MLive.com reports.
Although he was spotted running on a side field Wednesday, the third-year tight end still hasn't practiced since injuring his knee in Week 4. The Detroit offense hasn't relied on his replacements at tight end, instead looking to WRs Anquan Boldin and Golden Tate to fill the void in the short passing game. Tight ends accounted for just one of the Lions' 51 targets the past two weeks, with Clay Harbor drawing the sole look. Considering pass-catching back Theo Riddick (ankle) will also be absent, Boldin and Tate could be busy again.
Riddick (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against Washington, Kyle Meinke of MLive.com reports.
Absent from practice for a second straight week, Riddick never seemed to have much shot at making his return. Dwayne Washington (ankle) is listed as questionable after logging limited practices all week, suggesting he at least has some chance to join a Detroit backfield that was led by Zach Zenner and Justin Forsett in last week's win over the Titans.
Washington (ankle) is expected to play in Sunday's game against the Redskins, and he could get a lot of the backfield work. Kyle Meinke of MLive.com reports.
Washington is listed as questionable after logging three straight limited practices, but reports hinted he was almost able to play last week, which suggests he should be ready by Sunday. Prior to spraining his ankle, the seventh-round rookie was part of a timeshare with Theo Riddick (ankle), who has already been ruled out for Sunday. Assuming he plays and isn't too limited by the ankle, Washington could serve as the lead back ahead of Zach Zenner and Justin Forsett. The Lions still figure to go with a timeshare, making any of the three a speculative Week 7 option.
Sterling (foot) is questionable to play Sunday against the Raiders, The Florida Times-Union reports.
Sterling sustained a plantar fascia injury in practice last week and was unable to suit up against the Bears. The second-year tight end returned to practice Friday, though, so it appears there's at least a chance he'll be able to play.
Thomas (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Raiders, but coach Gus Bradley says he "should be good" to suit up, The Florida Times-Union reports.
Thomas surfaced on Jaguars' injury report Thursday with an ankle injury, and although he'll continue to be evaluated into the weekend, the tight end should still be fine to play Sunday. While his availability will need to be confirmed prior to Jacksonville's 1:00 ET kickoff, Thomas' matchup with the Raiders seemingly bodes well for an improvement on his lackluster production since Week 2.
Washington (hamstring) reached an injury settlement with the Jaguars on Thursday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Washington went down with hamstring earlier in the week which evidently will keep him sidelined for an extended amount of time. The Jaguars decided to instead part ways with the wideout instead of keeping him on the IR. The second-year man could hope to return to Jacksonville once completely healthy.
Blackmon (suspension) was handed a one-year suspended sentence and probation Wednesday, stemming from a misdemeanor DUI, the Florida Times-Union reports.
Taken fifth overall in the 2012 NFL Draft by the Jaguars, Blackmon hasn't played in an NFL game since being suspended indefinitely back on Nov. 1, 2013 for a violation of the league's substance abuse program. Though he remains listed on Jacksonville's roster, the the 26-year-old wideout seems increasingly unlikely to play for the team again.
Colvin (suspension) returned to practice Wednesday, Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida Times-Union reports.
Colvin was dealing with an ankle injury and had been sidelined since the team's preseason opener. He was back on the field Wednesday and should be available for Saturday's matchup with the Buccaneers. Colvin is suspended for the first four games of the regular season for taking performance enhancing substances, but he should be back to full strength by then.
