Lions | K. Jones Will Give up Some Carries

Tom Kowalski, of mlive.com, reports Detroit Lions RB Kevin Jones is not going to shoulder the entire weight of the team's running game this season. "We expect a lot from him, but he's not going to have every snap. He's going to share the load a little bit with RBs Artose Pinner and Shawn Bryson," said Lions head coach Steve Mariucci. "That's by design. It's not because he can't handle it, it's because we want to keep all of them fresh and healthy. He'll get the lion's share of it, though." While Mariucci agrees with the theory that some of the best running backs get stronger as the game goes on, he's going to stick with his plan. "He'll get his carries, believe me." Mariucci added the offensive focus will be in establishing an excellent ground game.
