Ebron ready for Week 1? | Shark Bites | Draft Sharks

This sounds more like an educated guess than an actual report, but it's at least more confirmation that Ebron avoided a serious injury. He's fine to draft at his 10th-round ADP. Just be ready to add a backup option in case he misses the start of the season.
