Three sidelined with injuries
The Lions were shy two tight ends at todays morning practice session. Rookie Brandon Pettigrew has a thigh issue and Casey Fitzsimmons rolled his ankle in practice on Sunday.
Cornerback Eric King also sat out with a foot injury.
Coach Jim Schwartz said they are not serious.
Eric and (Fitzsimmons) both tried to come out and do it but they werent able to. Both want to be back as quick as they can. I dont anticipate any of them being more than day to day, Schwartz said.
Fitzsimmons was wearing an orthopedic boot on his left foot and he called it a high ankle sprain.
