Jim Caldwell mum on Eric Ebron’s injury after sitting out practice Wednesday

Detroit Lions first-round pick Eric Ebron sat out practice Wednesday and may not play in Saturday’s preseason opener against the Cleveland Browns.

However, head coach Jim Caldwell was tight-lipped on supplying details of Ebron’s injury after the team wrapped up their workouts.

He has an injury,” Caldwell said, via Kyle Meinke of MLive.com. “We’ll keep him out for a couple days and see how he does.

“We’ll see (if he can play against Cleveland). He’s day-to-day, so we’ll see how it goes.”

Wednesday’s practice was the first one Ebron has missed, in training camp or over the offseason, since joining the Lions in May.

Ebron has been listed as the Lions’ third-string tight end on their preliminary (somewhat unofficial) depth chart behind Brandon Pettigrew and Joseph Fauria. Ebron said previously that he felt like he was just beginning to get over the “rookie wall” and process the offense faster and more accurately.

At least for the next few days, it appears that learning process will have to continue from the sidelines.

    He has a hip bruise. Him and Fauris were grinding it out for that two spot.

    Looks like Ebron is fitting in perfectly with the Lions by learning how to be a proper loser.

    Is it “mum” or clueless? I remember Caldwell being mum quite a bit with the Colts then.

    Ahhh…. I guess he really DID hit that rookie wall.

    The “injury” is code for “we screwed up and took a tight end instead of filling a position of need.”

    Yet another bad draft choice for a team that still needs to turn its fortunes around.

    He probably injured his mouth the way he’s been flapping his lips all pre-season.

    Lol @ Caldwell. Deer in headlights.

    He probably sprained his mouth with all the yapping he’s been doing.

    I never heard a rookie talk about the rookie wall two weeks into the training camp before.
