Name  Brandon Pettigrew
Born  2/23/1985
Height  6-5
Weight  265
College  Oklahoma State
11/16/2014 3:11:00 PM
Description: Detroit tight end Brandon Pettigrew (foot) is inactive for Week 11.
Insight: Pettigrew is one of many Lions tight ends on the roster so rookie Eric Ebron and veteran Joseph Fauria will get additional snaps.
 
11/6/2014 2:46:00 PM
Description: Detroit tight end Brandon Pettigrew (foot) returned to practice Thursday.
Insight: Pettigrew is one of many Lions tight ends getting healthy. We don't like him as a fantasy option.
 
10/26/2014 8:46:00 AM
Description: Detroit tight end Brandon Pettigrew (foot) is inactive for Week 8.
Insight: Pettigrew could have had the position all to himself, but will join Joseph Fauria and Eric Ebron on the bench.
 
9/14/2014 12:03:00 PM
Description: Detroit tight end Brandon Pettigrew (foot) is active for Week 2 against Carolina.
Insight: Pettigrew is not a strong start this week, but if you have no other option, then he will be on the field.
 
Cold9/12/2014 9:56:00 AM
Description: Detroit tight end Brandon Pettigrew (foot) was back at practice Thursday.
Insight: Pettigrew shares time with Joseph Fauria and rooke Eric Ebron and is a non-factor for fantasy owners. He caught just 41 balls for 416 yards and two scores last season and had one catch for nine yards in the opener.
 
Cold7/4/2014 2:06:00 PM
Description: Detroit tight end Brandon Pettigrew apparently can see the handwriting on the wall and is "embracing" his role as a blocker, says Carlos Monarrez of the Detroit Free Press.
Insight: Pettigrew isn't the player he once was and the addition on rookie Eric Ebron should make Pettigrew a non-factor for fantasy owners.
 
3/14/2014 1:35:00 PM
Description: Although courted by the New York Jets and others, Detroit tight end Brandon Pettigrew has agreed to a four-year deal with the Lions.
Insight: Pettigrew isn't an explosive tight end in the Jimmy Graham mold, but when healthy he's been a consistent contributor in an offense that throws the ball 650-700 times a year.
 
12/25/2013 10:49:00 PM
Description: Detroit tight end Brandon Pettigrew has been ruled out for Week 17 as the tyeam has placed him on the injured reserve.
Insight: Joseph Fauria, who has been a touchdown machine in his rookie season (seven of his 15 receptions have gone for touchdowns), will get the start.
 
12/20/2013 4:43:00 PM
Description: Detroit tight end Brandon Pettigrew, who was on crutches earlier in the week, couldn't make it back in time and has been ruled out for Week 16.
Insight: Joseph Fauria, who has been a touchdown machine in his rookie season (seven of his 12 receptions have gone for touchdowns), will get the start but he'll let you down if he doesn't catch a touchdown.
 
12/19/2013 10:13:00 AM
Description: Detroit tight end Brandon Pettigrew was seen on crutches Wednesday at the team's practice facility. SOURCE: Detroit Free Press
Insight: That won't help his chances of playing Sunday against the Giants. He's listed as questionable with an ankle injury though he might be closer to doubtful. Joseph Fauria, who has been a touchdown machine in his rookie season (seven of his 12 receptions have gone for touchdowns), would likely get the start if Pettigrew can't play in Week 16.
 
12/30/2012 11:56:00 AM
Description: Lions tight end Brandon Pettigrew will return for Sunday's season finale versus the Bears. Pettigrew hasn't played since December 9th because of a high ankle sprain.
Insight: Pettigrew only practiced once this week so it's a bit of a surprise that he's taking the field on Sunday. He's probably not close to 100 percent, which makes him a risky play in a championship week.
 
12/28/2012 3:09:00 PM
Description: Detroit tight end Brandon Pettigrew returned to practice Friday for the first time since suffering a high-ankle sprain in Week 14. SOURCE: Tim Twentyman, DetroitLions.com
Insight: Pettigrew (57-556-3) has missed the last three games and is questionable for Sunday's game against the Bears. The 4-11 Lions have no incentive to push Pettigrew for the final game of the season.
 
12/22/2012 7:36:00 PM
Description: Detroit tight end Brandon Pettigrew is inactive Saturday against the Falcons.
Insight: Pettigrew is dealing with a high-ankle sprain and is unlikely to return in Week 17 either. Tony Scheffler and Will Heller will handle TE duties.
 
12/19/2012 12:39:00 PM
Description: Detroit tight end Brandon Pettigrew, who missed Sunday's game against Arizona because of a high ankle sprain, missed Wednesday's practice.
Insight: High ankle sprains can sometimes take close to a month to heal. With the Lions already out of the playoffs, Detroit might play it safe. The team has a couple of solid backup tight ends in Tony Scheffler and Will Heller.
 
12/16/2012 3:19:00 PM
Description: Detroit tight end Brandon Pettigrew is out for Sunday's game against Arizona because of a high ankle sprain.
Insight: High ankle sprains can sometimes take close to a month to heal. With the Lions already out of the playoffs, Detroit might play it safe and keep Pettigrew out the rest of the season.
 
12/14/2012 5:59:00 PM
Description: Lions tight end Brandon Pettigrew (57-556) has a high-ankle sprain and is doubtful for Sunday's game. SOURCE: Detroit Free Press
Insight: A high-ankle sprain is usually a four-week injury so Pettigrew could miss the rest of the regular season. Tony Scheffler is a sleeper tight end option for the semi-finals of the fantasy playoffs.
 
12/14/2012 2:10:00 PM
Description: Lions' tight end Brandon Pettigrew is questionable for Sunday's game against Arizona due to an injured ankle.
Insight: Pettigrew didn't catch a pass against Green Bay while tight ends Tony Scheffler caught three balls for 20 yards and a TD (10 targets) and third string Will Heller caught four for 21 yards. Matthew Stafford likes to throw to his TE and if Pettigrew is healthy he's his favorite target outside of Calvin Johnson.

Description: Lions tight end Brandon Pettigrew is questionable for Sunday's game against Arizona due to an injured ankle.
Insight: Pettigrew didn't catch a pass against Green Bay while tight ends Tony Scheffler caught three balls for 20 yards and a TD and third string Will Heller caught four for 21 yards. Matthew Stafford likes to throw to his TE and if Pettigrew is healthy he's his favorite target outside of Calvin Johnson.
 
11/30/2012 2:29:00 PM
Description: Lions tight end Brandon Pettigrew is questionable for Sunday's game against Indianapolis. His knees have been acting up for the last month and he could use some time off.
Insight: We can see the effect its had on his production. Over the past four games Pettigrew has caught 16 balls for 139 yards (34.7 ypg). In his first seven games he averaged 53.4 ypg. Neither is great, but the last four weeks are unworthy of a start in fantasy lineups.
 
10/12/2012 5:20:00 PM
Description: Lions tight end Brandon Pettigrew is listed as probable for Sunday's game despite being limited at practice for the past three days.
Insight: Detroit is just limiting Pettigrew's reps to keep him fresh. The tight end will be fine to play Sunday against the Eagles.
