    Steelers' Eric Ebron: Catches two passes in Week 6

    Eric Ebron brought in two of his four targets for nine yards in Sunday's 38-7 win over Cleveland.Ebron had logged 40-plus receiving yards in each of his previous three contests, with Sunday's effort marking a season-low yardage total for the tight end. Although the Pittsburgh Steelers put up 38 points, the team wasn't forced to do much passing during the second half after jumping out to a sizable lead early on. Although he wasn't utilized much against Cleveland, Ebron has played a fairly steady role in the Steelers offense to begin the season, as he's now brought in 16 of his 22 targets for 165 yards and a touchdown through five contests.

    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: 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.
