Lions WR Marvin Jones (ankle) is active for tonight’s game against the Patriots. He was added to the injury report on Friday and listed as questionable, so he comes with added risk. But if you were waiting on Jones, get him into fantasy lineups.

Lions WR Marvin Jones has missed the last week of practice with knee trouble and won't play in the 2nd preseason game, the Detroit Press' Dave Birkett reports. Jones, of course, missed the final 7 games of last year with a knee injury that required surgery. "Again we’re just trying to take some time off to make sure we’re being smart with it in the situation," HC Matt Patricia said Thursday. This has become a situation to monitor. Hopefully Jones can play in Detroit's 3rd exhibition.

Lions WR Marvin Jones (knee) didn’t practice all week and is out for Sunday’s game against the Panthers. He’s going for a 2nd opinion on that injured knee, which usually isn’t a good sign. Jones’ absence leaves T.J. Jones, Brandon Powell and Bruce Ellington behind Kenny Golladay on the WR depth chart. Golladay should dominate targets this weekend. And RB Theo Riddick figures to play a big role in the passing game.

Lions WR Marvin Jones (knee) did not practice on Wednesday. His injury isn't serious, but he's certainly not a lock to be ready for this weekend's game against the Panthers. Jones' absence would turn WR Kenny Golladay into a target hog and also boost RB Theo Riddick's target projection.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Lions WR Marvin Jones sustained a bone bruise in his right knee in Sunday's loss to the Bears and is "day to day." That's much better news than it could have been. We'll keep an eye on Jones' status heading into Sunday's matchup with the Panthers.

Lions WR Marvin Jones injured his right knee in the 4th quarter of Sunday's loss to the Bears. It looked like he was trying to get back into the game, but he never did. We'll look for an update on the injury and monitor Jones' practice participation this coming week.
