Tom Kowalski, reports for the Sporting News, Detroit Lions RB Kevin Jones will no longer be in a rotation at running back. Jones is working with position coach Tom Rathman on three things: recognizing and picking up the blitz, expertly setting up the screen pass and staying patient in the running game. Since he is now the fulltime back, staying patient should be an easy one for Jones because he no longer has to attempt to hit a homerun on every carry. Jones is a big guy who has the size and demeanor to block well, all he has to do is improve his technique.
