Lions willing to wait for Jones
August, 30, 2007
Lions doctors determined running back Kevin Jones will need to stay on the physically unable to play list, but the good news is he's staying on more for conditioning purposes than his foot injury. Jones is coming back from the dreaded Lisfranc foot injury, one that puts an NFL career in some jeopardy. Despite working hard in camp and showing he can do things on the foot, Jones needs more time to get into football shape. He'll be eligible to come off the PUP list after six weeks, and the Lions are confident he could be available.
