Detroit Lions running back Kevin Jones is expected to miss two to four weeks after sustaining a high right ankle sprain in the loss to Philadelphia.
The first-round draft choice was injured in the first quarter of Sunday's 30-13 loss.
"High ankle sprains can be two weeks or they can be 12," Lions coach Steve Mariucci said Monday. "He's had these before, and he was back in a couple
weeks both times, so that's what we are hoping for."
Fullback Cory Schlesinger pulled a hamstring, but the Lions hope to have him back for their Oct. 10 game in Atlanta. Detroit has a bye this week.
The Lions also hope to have cornerbacks Dre' Bly (knee) and Andre Goodman (hamstring) back to face the Falcons. Both have missed the last two weeks. A
third cornerback, Rod Babers, is expected to miss the rest of the season after breaking his collarbone against the Eagles.
