Lions adding help at tight end

Lions tight end Eric Ebron had an ice pack on his ankle after last Sunday’s loss to the Bears and also hurt his knee during the game, continuing a year that’s been plagued by injuries since Ebron hurt his ankle early in training camp.

The team may have some concern about his availability in the near future because they’ve reportedly added another body at the position. Adam Caplan of ESPN reports that the team is signing Clay Harbor to the roster.

Harbor was a member of the Patriots until he was released on Monday. He saw action in the last three New England games, but the team needs roster space with Tom Brady and Rob Ninkovich returning from suspensions.

Harbor didn’t catch a pass for the Patriots, but has 111 career catches over six years with the Eagles and Jaguars before he made the move to the Patriots. Cole Wick, Orson Charles and Khari Lee have also seen time at tight end for the Lions this year with Wick joining Ebron as the only ones to catch passes from Matthew Stafford.

    Ebron has worn out his welcome in Detroit. I’d be shocked if this isn’t his last season, especially if there’s a regime change.

    Ebron sucks.

    Ebron is the worst 1st round bust in the past decade!

    Just curious, but what is the deal with Pettigrew? Is he still hurt? I thought the timetable on him was around the start of the season? Honestly thought he was going to be better coming out than he turned out to be, but he’s still very solid, and to me, would probably serve them better than Ebron right now

    My sympathies to Clay.

    Pettigrew is supposed to be back after their bye week

    Eric Ebron is a jake. I don’t want it to be true and he has the potential to be good. However, after the last two plus seasons, we can only conclude that he is a jake.
