Brandon Pettigrew is out for the year

It didn’t look good when Lions tight end Brandon Pettigrew was writhing in pain on the ground early in Thursday’s game against the Packers.

And even though Pettigrew, a first-round pick in the 2009 draft, eventually limped off the field, the news isn’t good.

Pettigrew, the team announced, will require season-ending surgery.

Though the specific nature of the knee injury wasn’t disclosed, it’s apparently a torn ACL.

Pettigrew started every game this year, catching 30 passes for 346 yards and two touchdowns.

    and the Lions get the only kind of news they know how to get.

    Yes, we’re bad, but the amount of injuries we are piling up is just freakish and cannot be helping our cause.

    There goes the Lions season… But really that’s unfortunate because an ACL suffered this time of the year is going to linger into next season.

    What a severe blow for the Lions. Greatly hurts their quest for 3 wins this season.

    Im a Man! I’m Forte!!,
    It sounds like you need to change your screen name. Forte is anything but a Man in the NFL. He sucks plain and simple. Just another bust in a long line of Chicago Bear RB draft picks.

    Damn that sucks! I’m first in my fantasy league & have lost Ronnie Brown & now my TE! Gotta hope McNabb, Addai, Wayne, R Moss, S Smith(NY), R Mathis, J Harrison, Mayo, D Sharper can carry me to the championship! Oh and I lost Polamalu too!

    IndyColtsSB44: The blow to Pettigrew is not going to change the outcome of your season. I am glad that you took the opportunity to list your fantasy team though. For the future, however, please note that nobody cares. Not one bit.

    To Zukith: Your a bigger D Bag than Tom Brady! I heard they put up those walls between the urinals because your a meatgazer!

    I agree whole-heartedly with zukith. If you want to list your fantasy football team here, be prepared to accept the consequences. No one gives a shit. And with all those Colts on your team it’s obvious you’re a homer.
