Brandon Pettigrew injured his ankle on Matthew Stafford's rushing touchdown early in the first quarter against the Packers on Sunday night. Left guard Rob Sims fell on Pettigrew at the line of scrimmage, and the Lions No. 1 tight end did not return to action the rest of the night.
Pettigrew left with seven minutes to play in the first, missing the majority of Week 14 and failing to get on the stat sheet.
Fantasy Impact: He was spotted wearing a walking boot after the game. While it may have been precautionary, it's not a promising sign for his value in Week 15.
The Lions receiving corps is already depleted, so Pettigrew's absence will only make matters worse. Tony Scheffler managed a touchdown against the Packers, but he still only caught three passes.
