is reporting that Detroit Lions tight end Eric Ebron will be ready for the start of the regular season.

Ebron suffered an ankle injury during training camp earlier this month.  It was originally feared that he had an Achilles tendon injury, which would have ended his season.

Ebron was the team's first round pick back in 2014 out of North Carolina.  He has been beset by injuries and ineffectiveness during the first two years of his NFL career.
