The Lions got a scare on Saturday when receiver Marvin Jones collided with cornerback Deshawn Shead. On Sunday, coach Matt Patricia downplayed the notion that Jones suffered any type of lingering injury.

He’s good, he’s fine,” Patricia told reporters regarding Jones, via Tim Twentyman of the Lions’ official website.

Trainers had looked at Jones’ left leg after the practice mishap. He’s back at practice on Sunday, the first day of padded practices for the Lions.

Jones had 1,101 receiving yards last year for the Lions, the first four-figure performance of his career.

  2. Marvin Jones is a very good #2WR, the Lions can ill afford to lose him. With DET WR Golden Tate turning 30yrs old this summer going into the last year of his contract the Lions were one of the teams I was afraid could possibly draft WR Christian Kirk before my Arizona Cardinals could, as he fits the mold of what the Lions want in a WR as a very fast shifty receiver & precise route runner with elite quickness & YAC abilities with the rare ability to make guys miss consistently much like a RB with the ball in his hands. Arizona was lucky to land him w/ Kirk having a late 1st round/Early 2nd round grade, his drunken incident at the PHX Open in FEB must of cost him causing him to drop a bit even though its the only off the field incident he’s ever had in his life. Luckily the Lions didnt draft him, they took WR Kenny Golladay last year who’s shown a lot of promise & they must be content with riding the Tate situation out possibly resigning him at the end of this season or possibly letting him go and drafting another WR or Two in the draft next year. The Lions had other more pressing needs this year other than receiver.

    We didn’t want him. Need him, sure, but we don’t want players who shoot BB guns at car windows just for the “fun of it” when they get bored.

  4. We only want talent that we can waste in Detroit (i.e. Sanders, Johnson, suh, etc.) Living up to our reputation is a hard game, but we certainly have a knack for being the Browns of the NFC.

  5. Come on guys. This is tackle football. Everyone is trying to make the team. Let them play. They’ve been waiting all summer to hit someone.

    Yea, same old mouth and same old Lions. You had Calvin Johnson and he retired early because or your trash franchise’s ability to win a playoff game.

    Lions have one of if not one of the worst franchise historys in the NFL.
