ALLEN PARK Womens Trey Flowers Jersey , Mich. (AP) — The Detroit Lions have a losing record, and one of the best teams in the NFL is coming to town.And the Lions won’t be at full strength when they face the Los Angeles Rams this weekend.Detroit put wide receiver Marvin Jones on injured reserve Monday after he missed the past two games with a knee injury. Jones’ absence leaves the Detroit receiving corps down another player. The Lions traded Golden Tate earlier this season.Jones has 35 catches for 508 yards and five touchdowns this season.“We just have to figure it out, roll with the next guy in there and see how it goes,” coach Matt Patricia said. “We can’t look back in those situations, we just have to look forward and we have to keep pushing. There’s nothing we can do about it. From that standpoint, it just gives other guys opportunities to go out and perform and go out and play at a high level.”Second-year receiver Kenny Golladay has been impressive and figures to be the team’s most dangerous target the rest of the season.“I think Kenny’s done a good job all year,” Patricia said. “I think it’s something that we talked about Womens Eli Harold Jersey , probably going back to the spring, and then identified his ability and his skillset that we think can help us win in certain situations. Certainly, finding different ways to get him the ball is important for us, but he’s certainly a focal point for a lot of teams that we face. That puts stress on other areas that we have to be able to come through with.”The Lions (4-7) signed linebacker Nicholas Grigsby to the active roster from the practice squad and signed defensive end Eric Lee to the practice squad.After spending years trying to build a dynamic offense around quarterback Matthew Stafford, Detroit is suddenly hoping its quarterback can lead a more limited group . Not only does he not have Tate or Jones to throw to, but the Lions were also without rookie running back Kerryon Johnson (knee) in their Thanksgiving loss to Chicago .Stafford threw for only 236 yards in that game. Now Detroit will have more time to adjust to playing without Jones.“Going through these NFL seasons, guys go down for injury http://www.lionslockerroom.com/authentic-taylor-decker-jersey , guys go down for different reasons,” offensive coordinator Jim Bob Cooter said. “We make adjustments. We adjust to fit the players.”The Rams (10-1) come into Sunday’s game after a weekend off. Their most recent game was a 54-51 win over Kansas City on Nov. 19.So the Lions may need to score a lot to win this game — with whoever is healthy enough to play.“I think it’s important for us to kind of look forward to this opportunity,” Cooter said. “We’ve got five games. We’re going to go play ball and we’re going to go kind of see what certain guys can do and how we play.”NOTES: Jamal Agnew, who went on IR earlier this season with a knee injury, said he hasn’t been cleared to practice. Agnew, who earned All-Pro honors last season as a punt returner, would not say if he is running yet Womens Jarrad Davis Jersey , and it’s not clear if he’ll be able to come back this season. “I’m always feeling good, but that’s not my decision to make,” he said. “I’m just going to put myself in the best position to try to come back and help the team win.” Matt Patricia never had to appear on Hard Knocks during his 14 years with the New England Patriots and he has no desire to start now.However, that decision isn’t in Patricia’s hands. The Detroit Lions are one of five teams across the NFL that can be compelled to appear on the annual HBO training camp series due to the fact they haven’t done the show in the last 10 years, haven’t been to the playoffs in the last two years, and don’t have a new head coach.The Lions can’t say no to the series if they were ultimately asked to appear. So instead, Patricia and G.M. Bob Quinn are trying to suggest another team would be a much more desirable option.According to Michael Rothstein of ESPN.com Matthew Stafford Jersey White , the Lions feel as though the Oakland Raiders are a much better option than themselves to appear on Hard Knocks.“I think Jon Gruden is an excellent choice for that show,” Patricia said. “I think the Oakland Raiders and everything they’ve got going on right now would be fantastic viewing for everybody to watch.”While Patricia’s suggestion is wholly self-serving, it’s also likely true. Gruden has a far more gregarious personality and would likely be more accepting of the television invasion given his years in the broadcast world. The Raiders final training camp as a team playing in the Bay Area would be an obvious story line to follow. Plus, the Raiders currently have the No. 4 overall pick in the draft, which could give the show an intriguing top rookie to follow (the Lions pick eighth).“Nobody wants to do it. Except Oakland,” Quinn said.The Raiders, New York Giants Nick Bellore Jersey White , San Francisco 49ers and Washington Redskins are the four teams along with the Lions that can be forced to do the show.
