Brandon Pettigrew TE DET 3 Months

Pettigrew (foot) took part in Wednesday's practice, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

Pettigrew was last targeted in Week 8 against the Saints, as a foot issue has kept him sidelined two of the last three games, with a catch-less outing in the other. As the week rolls along, expect his status for Sunday's contest in New England to receive clarification.

Pettigrew (foot) is probable for Sunday's game against Arizona.

Pettigrew was added to the injury report Friday with a limited practice, but the probable designation implies that it was mostly just to give his foot some rest after he hurt it a bit against Miami last week. He is in any case likely to remain only a peripheral part of the Detroit passing game.

Pettigrew (foot) returned to Sunday's game against the Dolphins in the second quarter, the Detroit Free Press' Dave Birkett reports.

False alarm. Pettigrew appeared to aggravate his foot problem, but he returned after missing just a few minutes.

Pettigrew left Sunday's game against the Dolphins in the first quarter with an apparent foot injury, the Detroit Free Press' Dave Birkett reports.

Pettigrew walked off the field with a limp, looking down at the bum foot that had him listed as questionable coming into this game. With both Joseph Fauria and Eric Ebron inactive, Kellen Davis is left as Detroit's only healthy tight end.

Pettigrew (foot) is active for Sunday's game against the Dolphins, Kyle Meinke of MLive.com reports.

The Lions haven't relied on their tight ends in the passing game in 2014, which places a damper on Pettigrew's potential. Further hindering his prospects are the returns of Calvin Johnson (ankle) and Reggie Bush (ankle), as well as the presence of Golden Tate, meaning Pettigrew and the remaining skill position players will be fighting for scraps from Matthew Stafford.

Pettigrew (foot) is questionable for Sunday's game against Miami.

Pettigrew is listed as questionable, but the fact that Eric Ebron (hamstring) is doubtful would seem to imply that the Lions expect Pettigrew and Joseph Fauria (ankle) to play Sunday. Even if he does play, though, Pettigrew is a weak fantasy option with just nine catches on the year.

Pettigrew (foot) was limited in Thursday's practice, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Pettigrew and fellow tight end Eric Ebron (hamstring) returned to drills in a limited capacity. However, the duo earned reps behind TEs Kellen Davis and Jordan Thompson in positional drills. When the entire corps is healthy, Pettigrew is the clear top option, but his recovery from injury throws a wrench in the pecking order. Thus, keep a watchful eye on the situation as Sunday's game against the Dolphins approaches.

Pettigrew (foot) returned to practice Thursday, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Both Pettigrew and Eric Ebron (hamstring) were back in action, but during positional drills, fellow tight ends Kellen Davis and Jordan Thompson earned the initial looks. As a result, the pecking order at the position isn't set in stone with just one practice remaining this week, meaning owners should continue to monitor the situation as conditions evolve.

Pettigrew (foot) didn't participate in practice Wednesday, Michael Rothstein of ESPN.com reports.

Prior to the Lions' previous tilt against the Falcons in Week 8, Pettigrew failed to practice and was eventually ruled out. Because the absence has extended through the bye week, his availability for Sunday's game versus the Dolphins is seemingly in peril. As a result, continue to monitor his status as the week of practice unfolds.
