Default Jones making a run at Lions season-opener

If the Lions acquire another running back this off-season, that's fine with Kevin Jones.

Jones has a serious left foot injury. But he and the Lions say his recovery is on schedule, and he is optimistic he will be ready to start the 2007 regular season in his usual spot atop the depth chart.

"I guess it would make sense to have insurance," Jones said Tuesday. "To me, it doesn't matter who they bring in here or who's in the backfield in competition with me, because I'll win. As long as I'm healthy, I'll win it. I'll win my position."

The Lions have a pick before the Texans and have a young RB who is coming off an injury. Many have said AP is a possibility for the Lions and therefore thought Texnas' fans would have some interest in how Jones' recovery is going.

Does that pass muster?

ah gotcha. I hit this one after the Bly thread and I guess I am not in draft mode yet.

I'm not as concerned with the Lions taking AP as I am with the Browns...

That is my chief concern as well. Drafting for need is a wonderful theory but IMO not so common a practice. Last year the Saints had Deuce McCallister and plenty of WRs and they took Reggie Bush any way. I just don't see a player of AP's caliber falling all the way to us. There are teams who are obviously not in need of a running back and in need of other top talent but between the Lions, the Browns, and bad luck, it'll be a bit of a miracle if AP makes it to us.

Kevin Jones has just been injured ever since his charmed rookie season. I wouldn't be surprised if Detroit tried yet again to get someone to be a franchise runningback.
