Detroit Lions TE Brandon Pettigrew (knee) will not be ready for the start of training camp because of his knee injury, according to general manager Bob Quinn.
Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to keep an eye on the situation to see if Pettigrew will be ready for the start of the season. He likely will play behind Eric Ebron when he is healthy and is not a strong fantasy option.

Detroit Lions TE Brandon Pettigrew (knee) said Tuesday, May 10, that he plans to be ready for the start of training camp. He is making his way back from a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee suffered back in December.
Fantasy Tip: Pettigrew would help with pass blocking, giving Matthew Stafford more protection with Eric Ebron as the pass-catching tight end. Pettigrew's return might be more important to the fantasy appeal of Stafford and the running backs more so than his own fantasy appeal.

Detroit Lions TE Brandon Pettigrew is a candidate to be released with a new regime in town in Detroit.
Fantasy Tip: Pettigrew had just seven catches for 67 yards and one score in 2015, and he was overshadowed by emerging tight end threat Eric Ebron. Pettigrew could land on a team that utilizes him more, but he won't be anything more than a project as a fantasy backup.
Tue, 15 Dec 2015 14:17:01 -0800
Detroit Lions TE Brandon Pettigrew (knee) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Tuesday, Dec. 15. Free-agent TE Bear Pascoe (Bears) was subsequently signed.

Detroit Lions TE Brandon Pettigrew (knee) suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his knee in Week 14, according to head coach Jim Caldwell. Pettigrew will miss the rest of the year.
Fantasy Tip: Pettigrew had only seven catches (15 targets) for 67 yards and one touchdown on the season, so he wasn't really fantasy relevant at all. Eric Ebron remains the Lions' top tight end. He's hard to rely on, too, with just seven catches in the last three games.
Sun, 13 Dec 2015 11:46:22 -0800
Detroit Lions TE Brandon Pettigrew (knee) has been ruled out against the St. Louis Rams.
Fri, 30 Oct 2015 11:56:43 -0700
Detroit Lions LB DeAndre Levy (hip) has been ruled out for Week 8 against the Kansas City Chiefs in London. OT LaAdrian Waddle (knee) is questionable, while P Sam Martin (knee), CB Rashean Mathis (illness), TE Brandon Pettigrew (elbow) and LB Stephen Tulloch (illness) are probable. Levy didn't practice Friday, Oct. 30. Mathis and Waddle were limited, while the others practiced in full.
