Colts TE Jack Doyle (hip) remained sidelined for Wednesday's practice. Don't bank on him returning this weekend. Eric Ebron ranks 2nd among TEs in PPR points and 1st in non-PPR over the past 4 weeks.

Colts TE Eric Ebron (shin, quadriceps, knee, ankle) is active for today’s game against the Jets. He’s all sorts of banged up but is worth sticking with as a fantasy starter.

Colts TE Eric Ebron (shin, quadriceps, knee, ankle) is questionable for this weekend’s game against the Jets. He was a full participant in Friday’s practice after sitting out the previous 2 days. Ebron is obviously banged up but is on track to play on Sunday.

Colts TE Eric Ebron (shin, quad, ankle, knee) missed his 2nd straight practice on Thursday. He's obviously banged up and appears to be in danger of missing this weekend's game against the Jets. We'll get another update tomorrow. Ebron's absence would leave Erik Swoope as the Colts' lead TE.

Colts TE Eric Ebron didn't practice on Wednesday. He's listed on the injury report with shin, quad, ankle and knee issues. Ebron is obviously banged up after a busy outing last Thursday night, but we've heard nothing to suggest that he's in danger of missing this weekend's game against the Jets. We'll get another update tomorrow.

Colts HC Frank Reich labeled WR T.Y. Hilton (hamstring) and TE Jack Doyle (hip) "week-to-week." That doesn't sound promising for their chances of playing against the Jets on Sunday. Hilton's absence would again leave Chester Rogers and Ryan Grant as Indy's top 2 WRs -- and low-end fantasy options in PPR leagues. And Doyle's absence would mean another big workload for TE Eric Ebron.

Colts TE Jack Doyle (hip) has been ruled out for Thursday night's game against the Patriots. He didn't practice all week and has no timetable for return. Eric Ebron will again serve as Indy's lead TE on Thursday and is a solid fantasy starter. He's posted back-to-back 5-catch outings on 21 total targets.

Colts TE Jack Doyle (hip) remained sidelined on Tuesday. He's not going to play against the Patriots on Thursday night. That'll again make Eric Ebron a viable TE1. He's seen 21 targets over the past 2 weeks.

Colts TE Eric Ebron (shoulder, knee) returned to a full practice on Thursday. It looks like his absence on Wednesday was just a day off. With TE Jack Doyle looking unlikely to suit up against the Texans this weekend, Ebron will be a top-10 play.

Colts TE Eric Ebron did not practice on Wednesday and is listed on the injury report with shoulder and knee issues. Ebron played all of last week's game against the Eagles, so this could just be an early-week day off. Check back tomorrow for another update.

Colts TE Jack Doyle (hip) is out for Sunday's game against the Eagles. We don't have any details on his injury, but he didn't practice all week. Consider him questionable at best for Week 4. Doyle's absence this weekend should mean a big boost in snaps and targets for TE Eric Ebron. He's a nice Week 3 fantasy play.

UPDATE: HC Frank Reich labeled Doyle "week-to-week" on Friday.

Colts TE Jack Doyle (hip) missed his 2nd straight practice on Thursday. We don't have any more information, but it's certainly fair to wonder about his availability for this weekend's game against the Eagles. We'll get another update on his status tomorrow. Doyle's absence would turn Eric Ebron into a locked-in TE1.

The Colts on Monday signed TE Eric Ebron to a 2-year deal. With incentives, it could be worth as much as $15 million. It’s a disappointing landing spot for several reasons: Jack Doyle remains locked in as the Colts’ lead TE after re-signing last offseason. Ebron’s likely to siphon some receiving value from Doyle and also blocks the ascension of intriguing youngster Eric Swoope. Doyle’s presence obviously caps Ebron’s upside as well. The former Lion looks like a low TE2 for fantasy football owners in 2018

The Lions have released TE Eric Ebron. The 10th overall pick of the 2014 NFL Draft -- 2 spots ahead of Odell Beckham -- flashed at times but was largely a disappointment in 4 seasons in Detroit. Ebron missed 8 games and totaled just 11 TDs. He did come on over the 2nd half of last season, though, catching 38 balls for 414 yards and 3 scores over his final 9 games. Ebron turns just 25 in April, so we're not ready to throw in the towel on him just yet. We'll see where he lands.

Teams have been calling the Lions to inquire about the availability of TE Eric Ebron, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. It's unclear if Detroit is willing to deal the former 1st-rounder, although we assume they would be for the right price. Ebron has been a massive disappointment this season, totaling just 13 catches, 102 yards and 1 TD through 6 games. He's played less than 56% of the offensive snaps in 3 straight. A move out of Detroit certainly wouldn't hurt his fantasy outlook going forward. The trade deadline is on Tuesday.

Lions TE Eric Ebron (hamstring) returned to practice on Monday. We believe it was only his 3rd workout since training camp opened. We'll see if he can stay healthy between now and Week 1. Ebron has top-8 fantasy upside but is 1 of the bigger injury risks at his position.

Lions TE Eric Ebron (hamstring) has been sidelined all week after returning to practice last Friday. HC Jim Caldwell claims it's not a setback, though. "He's just got a couple issues that he's dealing with," Caldwell said. "He's got a couple things and not quite ready yet, so hopefully he'll continue to heal and we'll get him back out there soon." Ebron has had trouble staying on the field as a pro, missing 8 games through 3 seasons. He's not off to a good start in 2017. There's some breakout potential for the 24-year-old, but he also comes with plenty of risk in fantasy drafts.

Lions TE Eric Ebron practiced Friday for the 1st time since suffering a hamstring injury in the team's 1st training-camp workout. Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reported that Ebron left the field before the end of practice, but there was no indication that it marked a setback. We'll certainly keep an eye on Ebron's status going forward. Continued participation at any level will make him an attractive fantasy football draft option at his reasonable ADP.

Lions TE Eric Ebron suffered a hamstring injury during the team's 1st training-camp practice on Sunday. "He got a little bit of a tweak but we’ll see, see how bad it is," HC Jim Caldwell said afterward. We'll see how long this keeps Ebron sidelined, but it's obviously not a good start for a guy who's had trouble staying healthy. He's missed 8 games through 3 NFL seasons with ankle, knee and hamstring injuries.
