Detroit Lions tight end Eric Ebron, who was limited by a knee injury in practice this past week, is expected to play Sunday against the New York Giants, ESPN’s Adam Caplan reports.
Ebron, who was listed as questionable by the Lions on Friday, is experiencing some lingering pain and soreness in his knee.
Born in Newark, New Jersey, Ebron has referred to Sunday’s game as a homecoming as he faces the team he rooted for growing up.
“It’s going to be a dream come true, honestly, in my eyes,” Ebron said earlier this week. “It should be fun, man. I’m just going to unleash everything I got within that four quarters, man — every little ounce of energy I got.”
Ebron missed three games earlier this season due to knee and ankle issues. He has posted 43 catches for 521 yards and one touchdown in 2016.
