ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) - The Detroit Lions have put wide receiver Marvin Jones on injured reserve.

The team announced the move Monday. Jones has missed the past two games with a knee injury.

Jones' absence leaves the Detroit receiving corps down another player. The Lions traded Golden Tate earlier this season. Second-year receiver Kenny Golladay has been impressive and figures to be the team's most dangerous target the rest of the season.

Detroit hosts the Los Angeles Rams this weekend.

Jones has 35 catches for 508 yards and five touchdowns this season.

The Lions signed linebacker Nicholas Grigsby to the active roster from the practice squad and signed defensive end Eric Lee to the practice squad.
