Eric Ebron injured his hamstring on the first day of training camp in the opening minutes of the first practice. He finally returned Friday but didn't do much; however, the expectation was he would ramp up his practice time this week. That has not happened.
"No, he's just got a couple issues that he's dealing with, you know?" head coach Jim Caldwell said after practice Wednesday. "He's got a couple things and not quite ready yet, so hopefully he'll continue to heal and we'll get him back out there soon."
The article goes on to say Detroit still expects big things from Ebron, who doubled his production from year one to year two, then did it again last season with 61 catches for 711 yards. That was top 10 at the position. But he also dropped seven balls, a league high at the position, and caught just one touchdown. Availability has been the ability Ebron has struggled with so far in his career, missing eight games in his first three seasons. He is still on our radar as a low-TE1.
