Eric Ebron injury update: Lions TE questionable vs. Packers

We break down the fantasy implications of Eric Ebron being questionable to play in Week 3.

The Detroit Lions are listing tight end Eric Ebron as questionable to face the Green Bay Packers. Ebron did not practice Wednesday due to a back injury suffered in Week 2. He got in a limited session on Thursday before going full on Friday.

Ebron looks more probable than questionable to play Sunday, but keep track of him as the inactives are announced. In two games this season, Ebron has caught nine passes for 99 yards on 12 targets with one touchdown.

The TE looks to be on the verge of a breakout third year in the NFL. There is no other capable tight end on the roster, so Detroit will continue to rely heavily on Ebron as long as he suits up.

Fantasy Impact: If Ebron plays, he will be a tantalizing play vs. a Packers defense allowing the third-most fantasy points to tight ends. Yahoo! has him ranked as the 10th-best tight end for Week 3.

As long as he plays, start Ebron this week.
