Lions' Eric Ebron: Missing OTA practice
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Ebron missed Thursday's OTA due to an unspecified injury, Tim Twentyman of reports.

Ebron is expected to be one of the main receiving targets for quarterback Matthew Stafford this season now that Calvin Johnson has retired, but the team doesn't seem to be too worried that Ebron missed practice. Head coach Jim Caldwell said in reference to Ebron, "He's coming along, so we've got a few guys with some bumps and bruises and some issues, but he should be back." While it remains unclear why the tight end is out, it doesn't appear he'll be out for too much longer, and he should be considered day-to-day for a return to practice.

Lions' Ameer Abdullah: Underwent shoulder surgery in January
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Abdullah underwent shoulder surgery in January to repair a torn labrum and could miss the remainder of the offseason as he continues to rehab, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Abdullah is coming off a rookie campaign with the Lions in which he led the team in rushing yards with 597 on 143 carries, while he played the final two games of the season with an injured shoulder that would eventually require surgery. The team has elected to proceed cautiously during their potential starting running back's rehab until training camp, but he appears to be ahead of schedule. Abdullah's Week 1 status isn't currently in doubt, while Theo Riddick, Stevan Ridley, Zach Zenner (chest), and incoming rookie Dwayne Washington should see additional opportunities this offseason with Abdullah sidelined.
