Scheffler told The Associated Press on Wednesday that having three concussions over the past four years had "a lot" to do with his choice.

Lions TE Tony Scheffler (concussion, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 7. Joseph Fauria saw a season-high 24 snaps with Scheffler out in Week 6 and caught three TDs in the process. He's a Sneaky Start with Scheffler out again.

"I am (looking forward to having more weapons)," Marshall told ESPN Chicago's Sarah Spain while attending the ESPYs. "It was tough sledding last year. I think that's why I had to have the surgery. I had 2-3 guys on me every single play, but bringing in big boy Martellus, I don't think the league really knows how good he is."
We're skeptical that the self-proclaimed "Black Unicorn" is going to make a huge impact, but it's possible if new HC Marc Trestman makes him a big part of the offense. The top season by a TE in a Jay Cutler-led offense was Greg Olsen's 60-612-8 in 2009 and the four-year average from '07-'10 with Olsen and Tony Scheffler was 48-552-5.3, which equates to #18 TE numbers in our 2013 projections. Of course, that doesn't even count the 37 total catches in the last two seasons by Kellen Davis. The Bears should throw the ball more, which will certainly help.

Lions TE Brandon Pettigrew (ankle, doubtful) returned to take limited reps Friday after missing practice earlier in the week and is doubtful for Week 17. It's a step in the right direction, but the doubtful tag means that he's probably not going to play this week. Tony Scheffler should continue to see extra snaps.

Lions TE Brandon Pettigrew (ankle, doubtful) missed practice all week and is doubtful for Week 16. Pettigrew is likely out, so look for Tony Scheffler to see a good workload against the Falcons on Saturday.
