Three Lions tight ends appear doomed to inactivity Sunday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The Lions are nearly certain to be sans three tight ends for their Sunday game against Atlanta. Both Eric Ebron (hamstring) and Joseph Fauria (ankle) have been ruled out while starter Brandon Pettigrew (foot) has been designated as doubtful.

Their absences could launch Jordan Thompson into the starting role. He was recently signed off the practice squad. Fullback Jed Collins could also earn some reps at tight end.

Three Lions tight ends held out of practice Wednesday
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Lions tight ends Brandon Pettigrew, Eric Ebron and Joseph Fauria were all held out of practice Wednesday.

Ebron (hamstring) and Fauria (ankle) continue to be sidelined due to injuries that kept them out Week 7 vs. New Orleans, and Pettigrew appears to be sidelined due to an ankle/foot injury he sustained Sunday against the Saints, according to MLive.com.

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.
