Lions TE backed up by journeyman Tim Wright
Eric Ebron exited Monday night's Week 4 game against the Seahawks with a left knee injury. He was replaced in most sets by veteran TE Tim Wright.
FF Today's Take:TE Brandon Pettigrew missed Week 4 with a hamstring injury. Ebron was hurt while blocking when C Travis Swanson tumbled into the side of Ebron's leg. Luckily, Ebron pulled his leg out while Swanson was falling on it, but it had the looks of a bad sprain. Before exiting midway through the second quarter, Ebron caught 2-of-3 targets for 22 yards. This comes as a big blow to an offense looking for consistent targets aside from Calvin Johnson. Wright isn't worth a waiver wire pick.
