Detroit Lions early notes: Jason Jones returns; captains named

ALLEN PARK — Defensive end Jason Jones, who missed practice on Wednesday and Thursday to take care of family matters, will practice today and is expected to play on Sunday.

The versatile Jones has helped fill the gap inside with the absence of Nick Fairley (knee).

— Captains for Sunday’s game at New England will be Matthew Stafford, Rashean Mathis and Jed Collins on special teams.

— The Buffalo Bills are expected to practice at 7:15 p.m. today at Lions facility. Coach Jim Caldwell said Lions will not have to make adjustments. In fact, he said they are happy to help out. The Bills will play the Jets at 7 p.m. on Monday at Ford Field. Ticket information to come.
