Lions defensive tackle Jason Jones out for the year with ruptured patella tendon

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.

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.
