    Chicago Bears TE Zachary Miller will miss time with potential ligament damage in his foot. X-rays were negative, but Miller is scheduled to undergo an MRI.

    Huddle Up: Miller was hurt in Thursday night's preseason contest with the Jaguars, but this shouldn't have a fantasy impact unless starting TE Martellus Bennett were to go down soon as well.

    Detroit Lions TE Brandon Pettigrew and the other tight ends have split time between working on the offensive line and working with the pass-catching receivers and running backs catching passes. Pettigrew worked with the line while TEs Eric Ebron and Joseph Fauria worked on catching passes Tuesday, July 29. 'We rotate and go down there during periods,' Pettigrew said. 'We have five guys here, why not split up and have some guys down there and some guys down here.' Pettigrew said this helps his blocking fundamentals, and aids Ebron and Fauria as well.

    Huddle Up: Pettigrew is likely the team's best blocking TE and add to that the selection of Ebron with the 10th overall pick in May, and it's not hard to see why many foresee the veteran's receptions, receiving yards and TD catches declining in 2014 for a fourth straight season.

    Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron said in a Tuesday, July 8 interview that fans should expect an 'awful lot' of two-tight end sets this season. Ebron and TEs Brandon Pettigrew and Joseph Fauria figure to split time at the position.

    Huddle Up: Pettigrew hasn't finished as a top-15 fantasy TE since 2011, when he posted career receiving highs across the board (83-777-5), and he isn't about to return anywhere close to that territory with the arrival of Ebron, the 10th overall pick in the draft. The rook is the only Lions' TE you need to consider in standard-size leagues.

    Detroit Lions general manager Martin Mayhew said the team is interested in re-signing impending free-agent TE Brandon Pettigrew, and he intends to meet with Pettigrew's agent at the NFL Scouting Combine. Mayhew did not rule out the possibility of using the franchise tag on Pettigrew.

    Huddle Up: With the Lions going to a Saints-model offense, the tight end position has some serious fantasy upside. Pettigrew isn't a Jimmy Graham type, but if he returns to Detroit he'd certainly warrant fantasy consideration.

    The Detroit Lions have not had any talks with the agent of impending free agent TE Brandon Pettigrew on a new contract, but the two sides are expected to meet at the NFL Combine this week.

    Huddle Up: Hampered by injuries, Pettigrew was a fantasy disappointment this past season as his final numbers (41-416-2) easily were his worst since his rookie year of 2009. If the impending talks don't get anywhere, he'll hit the open market.

    Updating a previous report, Detroit Lions TE Brandon Pettigrew (ankle) was on crutches in the locker room Wednesday, Dec. 18. TEs Dorin Dickerson and Joseph Fauria were the only two healthy tight ends at practice as a result. Head coach Jim Schwartz said Pettigrew's injury was 'the most concerning' of anyone who missed practice.

    Huddle Up: Pettigrew was hurt in the Monday night loss to the Ravens. He returned to the game, but it doesn't sound as if things have gotten any better in the ensuing few days. At this point, don't be counting on Pettigrew in Week 16, while the towering Fauria presents a red-zone threat if you're desperate at TE.

    Detroit Lions TE Brandon Pettigrew is being asked to block more this year than ever in his four-year career.

    Huddle Up: It's been a rough go for Pettigrew owners this season, although the TE did break out somewhat in Week 4, recording 7 of his 12 catches this season and gaining 54 of his 92 yards in the win over the Lions. See if he can ride the momentum this Sunday in Green Bay.
