Lions WR Marvin Jones made his preseason debut against the Bills on Friday night. He was sidelined for at least a week of practice in mid-August with knee trouble, but that doesn't appear to be an issue any longer. Jones is a fine value at his 9th-round, WR43 ADP.

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.

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.
