Brandon Pettigrew Taken Off PUP List, Practices This Morning

Lions tight end Brandon Pettigrew spent all of one day on the PUP list before being taken off it today and making his 2010 training camp debut.

Pettigrew took part in all the drills, from individuals to seven-on-seven, but didn't participate in the team drills. During those periods, he did some conditioning on the side.

"I did everything today up until the team period. For the most part, I feel good,'' Pettigrew said, adding he won't rush back from the knee injury he suffered last season during the Thanksgiving Day game. "I'm not going to kill myself to get back, I'm going to ease myself back in.''

Jim Schwartz has said that those coming off of ACL injuries will practice only once when the Lions hold two-a-days. Since they have another practice scheduled for this afternoon, Pettigrew is expected to miss it. As he continues to ease himself back in, he will also apparently get a day off once a week.

Aside from Pettigrew, there were no changes to the PUP list, although it is expected that one or two players could come off of it in the coming days.
