Lions' Brandon Pettigrew: Placed on injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brandon Pettigrew (knee) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Tim Twentyman of the Detroit 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
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Pettigrew suffered a torn ACL during Sunday's game against the Rams, NFL.com 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, he won't be pleased by his season ending 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: Catches one pass against the Eagles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brandon 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 Detroit 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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brandon 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 Detroit Lions ' TE depth, but as long as Eric Ebron is healthy, Pettigrew is not a high-percentage fantasy play.
