Brandon Pettigrew held out of Lions practice, Week 15 fantasy value unclear

Mike Carter-US PRESSWIRE

Detroit Lions tight end Brandon Pettigrew (ankle) did not practice on Wednesday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Detroit Lions tight end Brandon Pettigrew did not practice on Wednesday after suffering an ankle injury in last weekend's loss to the Green Bay Packers. Pettigrew was injured early in the game and did not return.

Pettigrew, who did not have a catch against Green Bay, has scored just three touchdowns this season. The Lions face the Arizona Cardinals in Week 15.

Fantasy Impact: Pettigrew missing practice on Wednesday isn't a huge concern but fantasy owners will want to keep an eye on this as the week goes along.

Pettigrew has been inconsistent this season and is only a fringe No. 1 fantasy tight end in most weeks. Fantasy owners should be able to find a decent replacement if Pettigrew can't go in Week 15.
