Lions DT Jones out for year with left knee injury

AP - Sports

LANDOVER, Md. (AP) -- Detroit Lions defensive tackle Jason Jones is out for the year with a left knee injury.

Jones ruptured his left patella tendon in the second quarter of the Lions' 27-20 win over the Washington Redskins on Sunday.

Jones was carted off after a pass play with 5:55 remaining in the first half.

''We got other guys,'' Detroit coach Jim Schwartz said. ''Willie Young is playing outstanding ball. Ziggy (Ezekiel Ansah). And Devin Taylor had a heck of a football game, and it will be his time to step up.''

Jones signed with the Lions as a free agent in March. The 2008 second-round draft pick spent four years with the Tennessee Titans and then played last year with the Seattle Seahawks.
