 ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) -The Detroit Lions removed running back Kevin Jones from the physically unable to perform list Saturday, setting a day-to-day timetable for his return to the field.
Jones missed the final three games of last season and all of training camp with a broken foot. He had run for 689 yards and three touchdowns while catching 61 passes for 520 yards and two touchdowns.
Lions coach Rod Marinelli said the decision to activate Jones was made after speaking with the surgeon who operated on Jones, and with Lions owner William Clay Ford and team president Matt Millen.
Jones, who had his foot examined by his surgeon Thursday, will be in pads when the Lions practice in preparation for their Sept. 9 season opener at Oakland. Marinelli said it is unknown when Jones will play.
He will, however, be on the Lions' 53-man active roster, which was to be announced later Saturday.
