Lions TE Brandon Pettigrew says his ankle is 'fine'

Detroit Lions tight end Brandon Pettigrew was injured early in Detroit's loss to the Green Bay Packers. He was unable to return because of an ankle injury. After the game, he said he "felt fine." In his absence, tight ends Tony Scheffler and Will Heller saw a big bump to their playing time. The duo combined for seven receptions for 41 yards and a touchdown. Matthew Stafford said, "It always hurts to lose a guy that's a really good tight end in this league."

Fantasy Analysis:

For now, there is not much information about the extent of Pettigrew's injury or any timeline for a potential return. More information will come out over the week. The Lions are already without three wide receivers (Nate Burleson @Nate13Burleson, Ryan Broyles @RyanBroyles, and Titus Young @TitusYoung) who are all on injured reserve. This is going to put a lot of pressure on Kris Durham, a second-year player with limited experience and Calvin Johnson @Bigplaycj. More updates will come after Pettigrew's status is announced.
