Lions TE Eric Ebron played his first game in almost a month and saw what seemed to be the most significant action of his rookie season Sunday against Arizona.
And after, he seemed encouraged with how he came out of the game health-wise with his once-injured hamstring.
"It felt good," Ebron said. "Hopefully it'll stay."
With Brandon Pettigrew out, the Lions relied on Ebron more than second-year tight end Joseph Fauria in its passing offense. Ebron was targeted four times -- more than every Detroit player except for Calvin Johnson, Joique Bell and Theo Riddick -- and caught all four passes for 22 yards. Fauria, meanwhile, did not see a single pass thrown his way Sunday. The story went on to say it's a possible sign Ebron is in store for a larger role going forward.
