Fantasy Impact: 

The veteran receiver did not play in Sunday’s loss to the Ravens with the team noting on Saturday that he would neither play nor travel to Baltimore. The story went on to quote Jones: “I just want to say that I have so much love and respect for the Ford family, the city of Detroit, my teammates, and coaches,” Jones said in his statement. “To be brief, I am stepping away from the team to take care of personal family matters. Although this was no easy decision, I cannot be the person/player that I need to be for this team as well as tend to my family from afar."
