Detroit Lions tight end Brandon Pettigrew missed a second straight practice on Thursday because of an ankle injury. Pettigrew was injured early in last weekend's loss to the Green Bay Packers and did not return to the game.
Fantasy Impact: Whatever concern that was about Pettigrew not practicing has magnified. There was some speculation that Wednesday was more of a rest day but this injury is clearly more serious.
Fantasy owners should check his status on Friday's injury report and be prepared to use someone else on Sunday.
