(ALLEN PARK) – The Detroit Lions placed wide receiver Marvin Jones Jr. on injured reserve Tuesday, two days after he suffered an ankle injury on the game's final drive against the Minnesota Vikings. It's the second straight season he ended his year on IR. Jones hurt the ankle while planting his foot on the last drive, but he finished the game. He played every snap Sunday during the Lions' 20-7 loss, then went to get examined. He was the last Lions player out of the locker room and did not speak with the media. Head coach Matt Patricia said he didn't know if Jones would need surgery. Jones, 29, had 62 catches this season for 779 yards and nine touchdowns. With Jones out of the lineup, Detroit will focus even more on Kenny Golladay, Danny Amendola and Chris Lacy.
