Eric Ebron hurt hamstring on Sunday

Lions tight end Eric Ebron missed a big chunk of time last summer with an ankle injury and his 2017 training camp got off on the wrong foot as well.

The Lions held their first practice of the summer on Sunday and Ebron wasn’t able to make it through the entire session before he injured his hamstring. Ebron did no team drills as a result and coach Jim Caldwell gave no indication about when Ebron might be able to return to action.

“He got a little bit of a tweak but we’ll see, see how bad it is,” Caldwell said, via the Detroit Free Press.

Ebron recovered from last year’s summer injury to post career highs in receptions and receiving yards. He did that despite missing three games, which means he’s still looking for his first 16-game season and the hope in Detroit will be that his current ailment isn’t the thing that stops that from happening this year.

  1. Would have been nice to let him play his contract out. It’s hard to turn a corner with a floppy hammy.

  2. The excuses are starting earlier every year! Never liked this guy, he has a big mouth, drops a lot easy passes and runs hi mouth a lot. Wasted 1st round pick for sure!!

  3. This guy NEVER should have been drafted in the First Round. The pick didn’t make any sense then and the return on investment since has been embarrassing to the franchise and should be embarrassing to Ebron too.

  4. Fells is a decent backup. Rest is trash. They need better run game…Fells might be a better fit, with his behemoth size.

  5. Remnants of the Mayhew Moron and WCF’s horrid ownership. Drafted Ebron, then Aarron Donald went, then Odell Beckham. I cant wait till the last of the Mayhew draft pick turds are flushed and then MAYBE this team can start to live up to some of their aspirations.

    Sincerely, a Loong suffering Lions fan
