Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 5 vs BUF (3 / 2 / 12 / 0 rec)

Pettigrew was minimally-involved in the pass game against Buffalo. Two quick out receptions were the highlights of Pettigrew's ho-hum performance. Matthew Stafford also missed Pettigrew when pressured on a third down. Eric Ebron continues to evolve as the featured tight end in the offense, leaving only possession-based targets for Pettigrew.

2014 Week 7 vs NO (6 / 4 / 28 / 0 rec)

With Eric Ebron and Joseph Fauria out of the lineup against the Saints, Pettigrew had an unobstructed path to tight end targets against the Saints. Pettigrew underwhelmed with his typical short routes and lack of athleticism before or after the catch. On one occasion Pettigrew had running room for yards-after-the-catch, but did little to take advantage. Even with little competition, Pettigrew remains a non-factor in the Detroit passing game.


Latest News

Lions | Eric Ebron out again Friday (Fri Oct 17, 12:19 PM) - Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron (hamstring) missed his second straight day of practice Friday, Oct. 17, after tweaking his hamstring in practice Wednesday, Oct. 15. 'He's had a similar issue before,' head coach Jim Caldwell said of Ebron. 'It's just a matter of how quickly he's going to be able to rebound. So the doctors are still working with him and it's going to be day-to-day. He hasn't practiced since Wednesday. So hopefully he'll get back soon.' If Ebron doesn't play, the team may call up TE Jordan Thompson from the practice squad. TE Brandon Pettigrew is the team's only healthy tight end currently on roster.

Our View: Pettigrew is still only a desperation play as a barely adequate receiving tight end at this point in his career.

Lions | Eric Ebron sitting out (Thu Oct 16, 04:33 PM) - Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron (hamstring) did not practice Thursday, Oct. 16, after being limited in practice Wednesday, Oct. 15. Ebron saw a career high in snaps in the team's Week 6 victory. The team is already without TE Joseph Fauria (ankle), so if Ebron can't play in Week 7 against the New Orleans Saints, TE Brandon Pettigrew would be the only active tight end on roster.

Our View: If Pettigrew is the last man standing, he's still not a good start, as he plays at a TE3 level. Ebron is only a little better as a TE2 if healthy. Keep an eye on this but you're better off heading in another direction.
