Lions' TJ Jones: Not practicing Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (hamstring) isn't practicing with the team Wednesday, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Jones was a limited participant Monday after injuring his hamstring Saturday against the Jets, but he still hasn't returned to team drills and thus seems unlikely to play in Friday's preseason game against the Patriots. He's battling Kenny Golladay for the No. 3 receiver job, with the competition having major implications for Golden Tate, seeing as Jones primarily works from the slot. Should Golladay win the battle, Tate will get most of the slot work in three-wide formations.

Lions' Eric Ebron: Still out of practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ebron (hamstring) isn't practicing with the team Wednesday, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Ebron still hasn't made it through a full practice since injuring his hamstring on the first day of training camp. He returned to limited individual work a couple weeks ago, but there hasn't been tangible progress reported since that time, with Ebron subsequently missing the team's first two preseason games and yet to return to team drills. He'll presumably miss Friday's exhibition against New England, giving him one last chance for a tune up before the regular season starts. While the Lions haven't voiced any concern regarding his Week 1 status, the current issue serves as a reminder that Ebron missed at least two games in each of his first three seasons, mostly due to lower-body injuries. There was some thought he'd draw a larger share of the targets this year, but the extended absence could impact his involvement early in the campaign.

Lions' Ezekiel Ansah: Expects to play season opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Jim Caldwell said he is optimistic that Ansah (undisclosed) will play Week 1, Justin Rogers of The Detroit News reports.

Although it's still unclear as to what Ansah is dealing with, it's encouraging to see him on track to play in the season opener. Ansah figures to be a key piece to the defensive puzzle in Detroit this season.

Lions' Scott Orndoff: Signs with Detroit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Orndoff signed a contract with the Lions on Monday, Michael Rothstein of ESPN reports.

Orndoff, an undrafted rookie, caught 35 passes for 579 yards and five touchdowns as a senior at Pitt last year. He'll need to impress on special teams in order to make the team, as the tight end room in Detroit is already crowded as it is.

Lions' Eric Ebron: Still sidelined Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ebron (hamstring) did not practice Monday, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Ebron's hamstring injury continues to derail his preseason preparations. At the moment, it's unclear when the tight end can be expected to return to the fold, but Darren Fells, Cole Wick and Michael Roberts figure to benefit from more reps in the meantime.
