>>Ebron Signing With Colts

He was released by the Lions last week after four years with Detroit. Ebron was picked 10th in the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft. He joins Jack Doyle as a one-two punch at tight end for quarterback Andrew Luck.
>>Matt Painter Continues To Deny Haas Playing Rumors
(West Lafayette, IN) — Purdue head coach Matt Painter continues to quell the rumors surrounding the status of senior center Isaac Haas. Painter has done his best to bring a dose of reality to the chances that Haas plays again this season. The Boilermakers ruled Haas out for the season after he fractured his right elbow in last Friday’s opening-round victory over Cal State Fullerton. Haas has been seen wearing a brace and fans were hopeful he would be able to return to the lineup if the NCAA approved its use. Painter said Haas will need to have a pin put in the arm when he eventually undergoes surgery and that he will not be able to play with a broken elbow, brace or no brace.
