Seahawks DT Jason Jones doubtful for Detroit with ankle injury
RENTON, Wash. – Seattle Seahawks defensive tackle Jason Jones is doubtful to play against the Detroit Lions on Sunday with an ankle injury.
Jones has been unable to practice all week after suffering the injury against the San Francisco 49ers last Thursday night. Jones has 2 1/2 sacks on the season primarily as a situational pass rusher. If he's unable to play, rookie Greg Scruggs will pick up the additional workload for Seattle. Scruggs earned his first career sack last week against the 49ers.
Receiver Doug Baldwin (ankle) and cornerback Byron Maxwell (hamstring) have been ruled out. Guard John Moffitt is listed as questionable with a knee injury but isn't expected to start even if he's able to play. Moffitt has missed the last four games.
