No damage to Eric Ebron's knee

CBS Sports - [Full Article]

After being selected with the No. 10 pick in the 2014 draft, Eric Ebron did not exactly impress during his rookie season. He finished the year with only 25 catches for 248 yards and one touchdown.

He was off to a much better start in 2015, though, at least until he got hurt on Monday Night Football against the Seahawks. Ebron left the game in the second quarter with a knee injury and did not return. According to ESPN's Adam Caplan, Ebron escaped without any significant damage to the knee, but his status for next week's game against the Cardinals is up in the air.

Fantasy Impact: 

It's a blow for Ebron and the Lions both, as he'd carved out a nice role in the offense through the first three weeks of this season. He caught 14 passes for 157 yards and two scores on 20 targets in Weeks 1-3 and had played 86 percent of Detroit's snaps, compared to only 50.6 percent last season. Losing Ebron deprives Matthew Stafford of a valuable weapon over the middle and in the red zone, and being that they're 0-4, the Lions definitly need him to get back on the field soon, the story pointed out.
