Jones suffered the injury to his right knee against Chicago on Nov. 11 and then went to get a second opinion less than a week later, a source told ESPN. The injury was first reported as a bruise and the ACL and MCL were intact. The Lions didn't give any more information about the injury.
The story added Ellington and T.J. Jones have split time on the outside opposite of Golladay. Riddick has seen time in the slot as well. Golladay should continue to get a ton of targets and over the last three weeks had totaled 35 with 19 catches and two TDs in that span.
DET WR T.J. Jones - Week 9 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 9 at Green Bay Packers
Golden Tate surprised many by playing last week versus Pittsburgh. However, even with his presence, Matthew Stafford came T.J. Jones’ way 8 times, resulting in 4 catches for 88 yards—both season-highs. The Lions were held to 71 rushing yards, so Stafford aired it out 45 times, trying to bring his team back. As rookie Kenny Golladay continues to recover from a sore hamstring, Jones will be Detroit’s No. 3 WR. However, even though he posted good numbers last week, it’s a stretch for him to be in your starting lineup versus the Packers.
