Lions' Brandon Pettigrew destined for expanded role in Week 7
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

With Joseph Fauria (ankle) out and Eric Ebron (hamstring) doubtful for Sunday, Brandon Pettigrew will likely be the only healthy tight end on the roster for the Lions in Week 7 at home against the Saints. He's expected to have an expanded role in the passing game, according to MLive.com.

"He's more than capable (of catching passes)," head coach Jim Caldwell said."And if that does indeed happen, I think he'd relish the opportunity to fill in in that area. He's big and he's got some speed, and he's a hard worker who has been performing extremely well for us."

Pettigrew has been more of a blocking tight end as of late with Fauria and Ebron on the roster. He has only five catches for 40 yards on the season.

Brandon Pettigrew no longer viewed as a receiver
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Lions tight end Brandon Pettigrew drew at least 100 targets in three of the previous four years, but under new coach Jim Caldwell, Pettigrew is almost strictly being used as a blocker, reports MLive.com. Pettigrew has been targeted eight times in six games, catching five passes for 40 yards.

"We're trying to do what's best for us to get in the end zone," Caldwell told the website.

The Lions are using tight ends Eric Ebron and Joseph Fauria as pass catchers.
