Lions offense takes another blow at wide receiver
As if the difficult loss on Thanksgiving Day was not enough, the Lions will now be without wide receiver Marvin Jones Jr. for the remainder of the 2018 season as it was announced today that he has been placed on IR.
The original reports from Adam Schefter stated, while Jones Jr. had sustained a knee injury, his ACL and MCL were intact and that it was a bone bruise to be evaluated day-to-day. This latest news points to there being more wrong than initially suspected. When asked to comment in his press conference, head coach Matt Patricia declined to add any further detail to the extent of the injury.
Jones ends his 2018 campaign with 35 catches for 508 yards and five touchdowns according to ESPN.com.
The Lions’ offense will now lean on up and coming WR Kenny Golladay as their deep threat and continue to use recent stand-out Bruce Ellington as the slot receiver with Theo Riddick coming out of the backfield until Kerryon Johnson is ready to return.
