Steelers' Eric Ebron (ankle surgery) moving pain-free
Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Eric Ebron (ankle surgery) said he has resumed "running and cutting with no pain."
Ebron, who signed with the Steelers earlier this offseason, also tweeted that he passed his physical. He landed on injured reserve following Week 12 last season and then underwent surgery. Ebron will compete for tight end snaps with Vance McDonald, who finished fifth on the Steelers with 55 targets last season. Ebron was limited to 3 touchdowns for the Indianapolis Colts in 2019 after racking up a career-high 13 scores the previous season. He turned 27 in April.
Ebron averaged 6.5 FanDuel points (TE20) and 34.1 yards on 2.8 receptions per game last season. He ranked 4th in numberFire's advanced per-target receiving metric out of 29 tight ends with 50-plus targets. However, Ebron did commit 5 drops on 52 targets, recording the highest drop rate (9.6 percent) in that same group.
