On Saturday, Detroit Lions tight end Eric Ebron went down in agony with what many feared was a “devastating” Achilles injury that could potentially end his season before it even got started.
Since then, the Lions have had their lips sealed regarding Ebron’s injury and we hoped that Monday would be the day they gave us the verdict.
Well, unfortunately, Jim Caldwell, Eric Ebron, and the Lions still don’t want give out any details about the injury, but it’s starting to seem like the injury could be minor.
Following Monday’s training camp practice, Ebron was seen walking off the practice field without crutches, a cast, or any other assistance whatsoever. In fact, other than a very small limp, Ebron seemed to be moving well. Check it out for yourself.

Justin Rogers of the Detroit News sent out the following tweet that really seems to sum up what we know at this point.
The only new information we have about Ebron is he's walking, which while not providing answers, is a good sign.
