Good news, as Eric Ebron was able to return to the game for the Lions.
Lions TE Eric Ebron left Sunday’s game against the Bears with knee and ankle injuries.
Based on the video, David Chao’s concern is that Ebron may have sustained a combination of MCL and high-ankle sprain injuries.
Ebron, 23, is a former first-round pick of the Lions back in 2014. He’s currently in the third year of his four-year, $12.249 million rookie contract and set to make a base salary of $1,233,558 for the 2016 season.
Entering today’s game, Ebron has caught 14 passes for 168 yards receiving and a touchdown over the course of three games. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 12 tight end out of 60 qualifying players.
