    Steelers' Eric Ebron: Finds end zone

    Eric Ebron caught four of six targets for 38 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 28-21 win over the Texans.Ebron finished second on the team in targets and provided one of the highlights of the day with a 10-yard touchdown catch over a defender in the second quarter. He received another look in the red zone and seemed to step up, especially after Diontae Johnson (concussion) left the game. Ebron reportedly connected well with Ben Roethlisberger during training camp and will now look to build on his best performance of the young season next Sunday against the Titans.

    Steelers' Eric Ebron: Inauspicious debut

    Eric Ebron caught one pass for 18 yards in the Pittsburgh Steelers' 26-16 win over the Giants on Monday.After weeks of debate over who would emerge as the No. 1 tight end for Pittsburgh, neither Ebron nor Vance McDonald were much of a factor all game. Just like McDonald, Ebron was only targeted twice, both coming before halftime. The Steelers have several pass-catching options, and as a result Ebron's fantasy value may be touchdown-dependent.

    Steelers' Eric Ebron: Completes strong training camp

    Eric Ebron (illness) developed his run-blocking skills during training camp and is expected to be a more well-rounded tight end, Bob Labriola of the Pittsburgh Steelers' official site reports.Ebron's biggest knocks are his run-blocking skills and the occasional dropped pass, but head coach Mike Tomlin made a deliberate effort to improve Ebron's blocking against some of Pittsburgh's best defenders. The 27-year-old may still lose some reps to Vance McDonald, but being a more well-rounded player should keep him on the field more and increase his fantasy potential after recording 31 receptions for 375 yards and three touchdowns last season.

    Steelers' Eric Ebron: Dealing with illness

    Eric Ebron missed Thursday's practice due to an illness, Brooke Pryor of ESPN.com reports.After breaking out with 13 touchdowns in 2018, Ebron was hampered by a preseason ankle injury all of last year, which didn't allow him to play beyond Week 12. Overall, he managed a 31-375-3 line on 52 targets in 11 games in his second season with the Colts. With the Pittsburgh Steelers, Ebron will have to contend with Vance McDonald for TE reps, once he's available again.

    Steelers' Eric Ebron: Passes physical, proclaims health

    Eric Ebron (ankle) announced via his official Twitter account on Thursday that he has passed his physical.Ebron stated early April that he was still in recovery mode after undergoing procedures on both ankles, but he's now managed to officially pass his physical and resume running and cutting without pain. The 27-year-old was limited by ankle woes during the 11 games he suited up for with the Colts last season, after having previously broken out with a 13-score campaign in 2018. Now evidently healthy enough to participate in on-field drills whenever the Pittsburgh Steelers ultimately reconvene for offseason activities, Ebron will look to build chemistry with veteran signal-caller Ben Roethlisberger, who has a history of utilizing the tight end position while leading Pittsburgh's aerial attack.

    Steelers' Eric Ebron: Still in recovery mode

    Eric Ebron said he's not yet recovered from surgery on his ankle, Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. "If the season started today, I don't think I'd be able to 100 percent perform," Ebron added Thursday.Ebron initially injured his ankle Aug. 4 but played through the pain until Week 12, after which he was shut down for the rest of the campaign. After breaking out for 13 touchdowns in his first year with the Colts in 2018, the aforementioned injury, among other things, contributed to him managing just three TDs last season. Since undergoing an initial procedure in early December, Ebron more recently had his ankle examined and "cleaned out" by a doctor in Houston. While he hasn't been looked at by the Pittsburgh Steelers' medical staff, he's slated to be healthy once the team reconvenes for activities, whenever that may be.

    Steelers' Eric Ebron: Joins Pittsburgh TE corps

    Eric Ebron will sign a two-year, $12 million deal with the Pittsburgh Steelers, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.Ebron is bouncing back from procedures in both of his ankles, but evidently the Steelers are comfortable with the way he's progressing and have added another pass-catching weapon for QB Ben Roethlisberger. When healthy, Ebron can be a useful red-zone option, as evidenced by the fact that he scored 17 touchdowns in 27 games over the last two seasons he spent with the Colts.

    Colts' Eric Ebron: Unlikely to re-sign with Colts

    General manager Chris Ballard doesn't expect Eric Ebron (ankle) to re-sign with the Indianapolis Colts for 2020, Zak Keefer of The Athletic reports. "We'll probably move on," Ballard said Thursday.Ebron scored 17 touchdowns in 27 games throughout a two-year, $13 million contract with Indianapolis, but he caught just 59.9 percent of his targets, in part due to 14 drops. His impressive athleticism ensures he'll draw interest from multiple teams as an unrestricted free agent, though the extent of that interest will partially depend on his recovery from Dec. 4 surgeries on both ankles. The tight end was one of the youngest players in the 2014 draft, so he'll be 27 years old in 2020 for his seventh pro campaign.
