Lions TE Eric Ebron back at practice Tuesday

ESPN - [Full Article]

Detroit Lions tight end Eric Ebron returned to practice Tuesday for the first time since injuring his ankle on Aug. 6 during the franchise's mock game at Ford Field.

Ebron was not spotted doing much during the limited viewing period of individual drills at the team's practice facility, but it is another step in the right direction for the tight end. He was spotted jogging to the Jugs machine and then catching passes on it last week.

Fantasy Impact: 

A source told ESPN Insider Adam Caplan on Tuesday morning that Ebron will play Week 1 against Indianapolis. His return to practice Tuesday would be another strong indicator of that, the story said. Ebron is slated to be Detroit's top tight end this fall. He had been having a strong camp leading up to the injury. Now entering his third season, he called this year a "make it or break it" year for him. He caught 47 passes for 537 yards and five touchdowns in 14 games last season.
