Marvin Jones to be placed on IR

The Lions are placing Marvin Jones (knee) on IR, according to Dave Birkett.

Fantasy Impact

This is a pretty big surprise, considering there was an earlier report that there was optimism that Jones would return in Week 13 against the Rams. In what is now a lost season, there was little reason for the Lions to push Jones, so they'll go the conservative route and rest him. Bruce Ellington should continue to see work, while Kenny Golladay and Theo Riddick should dominate the targets for the Lions going forward.

Marvin Jones could return Week 13

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting Lions WR Marvin Jones (knee) has a "chance" to return in Week 13.

Fantasy Impact

Jones missed last week's win over the Panthers and is also ruled out for Thursday's Thanksgiving Day matchup against the Bears with a bone bruise in his knee. However, following a pseudo bye week -- 10-day layoff in between games -- there is a shot Jones returns for Week 13's tilt against the Rams. The Lions will need all hands on deck to be competitive with Los Angeles.

Marvin Jones ruled out for Week 12

Marvin Jones (knee) has been ruled out for the Lions' Thanksgiving game against the Bears.

Fantasy Impact

Jones hasn't practiced since leaving the Lions' Week 10 game with a bone bruise in his knee. He doesn't appear close to returning, so fantasy owners should monitor his practice reports for next week to see if he has a chance to suit up against the Rams. Kenny Golladay will continue to see a ton of work in the passing game, while Theo Riddick should see his customary seven to 10 targets.

Marvin Jones misses practice again on Tuesday

Marvin Jones (knee) missed practice again on Tuesday for the Lions.

Fantasy Impact

With a Thanksgiving game on tap, Jones seems highly unlikely to suit up. With Kerryon Johnson also set to miss this game, expect to see Theo Riddick take on an expanded workload.

Marvin Jones sidelined Monday

Marvin Jones was marked as a non-participant in Monday's practice due to his knee injury.

Fantasy Impact

Given the short week and the fact that Jones missed Week 11's game, he's unlikely to suit up against the Bears. As a result, Kenny Golladay will continue to see all the targets he can handle in a game in which the Lions are likely to be trailing. While the Bears present a tough matchup, Golladay should continue to be started while Jones is out.
