Injuries could keep Pettigrew, FitzSimmons out several days

ALLEN PARK, Mich. -- Detroit Lions tight ends Brandon Pettigrew and Casey FitzSimmons missed Monday's training camp practice with injuries that could keep them out a few days.

Pettigrew, the 20th pick in the 2009 NFL Draft, tweaked a quadriceps muscle Sunday afternoon before FitzSimmons suffered a high ankle sprain. He walked around the training facility Monday with a boot on his left leg.

Coach Jim Schwartz said he didn't believe either injury was serious.
