Today Detroit Lions receiver TJ Jones revealed that he has had a scope done on his shoulder to fix a problem that occurred during Notre Dame’s bowl game. He considered it a minor procedure and expects to be ready by training camp. The news was rather revealing as there was no mention of an injury at the time he was drafted but I suspect it was something that the Detroit Lions knew about going into it and planned for. It was discouraging to hear that while he’s been primarily learning the Z position, he feels like he is behind right now. I suspect some of that is due to the injury to his shoulder and some is due to the rookie learning curve. Either way through it was encouraging to hear that dispirited Detroit Lions receiver TJ Jones having a scope done on his shoulder, he intends to not miss any time.
