Detroit Lions: Marvin Jones Week 3 Injury Update

There is no question about it, Marvin Jones is a crucial part of the Detroit Lions’ offense. He gives the Lions offense the ability to stretch the field and is a threat to score whenever he goes vertical.

That is why there was a bit of a concern when Jones was added to the Lions’ injury report on Friday with an ankle injury.
















On Sunday morning, Ian Rapoport tweeted out some good news for the Lions. According to Rapoport’s sources, there is optimism that Jones suits up and plays on Sunday Night Football against the New England Patriots.

Let’s hope that all is well with Jones so that Matthew Stafford and the Lions offense have their full arsenal of weapons.


Ryan’s Lions Betting Preview Week 3 Edition

After being blown out by the Jets on Monday Night Football at home in the season opener, the Lions rebounded (sort of) when they only just barely lost on the road o the 49ers in week 2. Sitting at 0-2 on the season, the Lions are 1-1 against the spread after a late “back door cover” where Detroit was a six point underdog, and lost 30-27.

Detroit trailed 30-13 in the fourth quarter, but closed the gap on two Matthew Stafford touchdown passes–the last one to Michael Roberts with 3:27 remaining in the game to get within a field goal. A late Lions interception was nullified by a defensive holding call to preserve the win for the 49ers.

In my betting preview of the Lions games, I have “successfully” (read unsuccessfully) been on the wrong side each week, as I laid the points against the Jets, and then laid the points with San Francisco. As for the totals, I was correct in Week 1 in prognosticating that the Jets game would go over, but last week I felt the game would go under 48.5 points, but was wrong.

I did manage to split the “other” two bets I proposed, as the New Orleans Saints could barely get past the Cleveland Browns (who won this Thursday after 635 days of futility), but the Sunday Night game DID in fact go under the total. I sit at an even 4-4 on the season, which is not profitable. Time to get on the “good” side this week.
