Lions evasive on Eric Ebron's ankle injury

MLive - [Full Article]

Eric Ebron missed more than two weeks with an ankle injury.

Then he came back. For a day.

And now he's gone again, with no word on what's up or when he'll return.

The Detroit Lions tight end missed a second straight day of work Thursday, and coach Jim Caldwell sidestepped questions about whether he had suffered a setback in his return from an ankle injury.

Fantasy Impact: 

Ebron caught 47 passes for 537 yards and five touchdowns last season and finished as the #13 TE in PPR formats, though he was actually worse under then-interim and now-official offensive coordinator Jim Bob Cooter. He averaged 13.0 FP (PPR) through the first seven weeks, and 7.3 FP once Cooter was promoted. With Calvin Johnson gone, there are a lot of moving parts in Detroit, so this doesn't mean that Ebron won't produce similar (or better) numbers in his third season, provided he can get healthy. This injury situation doesn't seem to be trending the right way.
