Schwartz Says TE Scheffler Making Some Big Time Catches in OTAs

The boot is off, and so tight end Tony Scheffler is finally off and running with the Lions. After a minor foot injury kept him out of organized team activities, Scheffler returned for two OTAs recently and made what coach Jim Schwartz called big-time catches.

“He’s a big target,” Schwartz said. “He’s got great natural hands. He’s got good speed. Just real savvy in the pass game. He was a little bit behind because he spent some time in the boot. But he’s back now, and it’s not even a concern right now. We’re starting to get him with the quarterback more and more, and we’re starting to see the role that he’s going to take in the offense.”
