Lions-Giants injury report: Brandon Pettigrew ruled out for Sunday

The Detroit Lions will be without tight end Brandon Pettigrew on Sunday.

Jason Miller

As expected, Detroit Lions tight end Brandon Pettigrew has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the New York Giants. Pettigrew missed practice all week after hurting his ankle on Monday night, and he will not be able to play this week as a result. Look for a heavy dose of Joseph Fauria and Dorin Dickerson, and expect to see Dylan Gandy in as well in obvious running situations.

In other injury news, linebacker DeAndre Levy is questionable despite not practicing at all this week. Gunther Cunningham said this on Friday when asked about Levy's status for Sunday's game:

The Lions could obviously use Levy this week against the interception-prone Eli Manning, so hopefully Cunningham's assessment of the situation is accurate.

Here's the Lions' full final injury report:

WR Calvin Johnson (knee) - Questionable
TE Brandon Pettigrew (ankle) - Out
LB DeAndre Levy (foot) - Questionable
