ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) — Detroit Lions tight end Brandon Pettigrew has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the New York Giants.
Pettigrew hurt an ankle during Detroit's 18-16 loss to Baltimore on Monday night. His absence leaves the Lions without a key offensive player. Pettigrew has 41 catches for 416 yards and two touchdowns this season. Without him, Detroit may look to Joseph Fauria to play a bigger role in the offense.
