15OCT04 Detroitlions.com : nothing is certain regarding the status of rusher Kevin Jones (ankle), receiver Roy Williams (ankle) and cornerback Dre' Bly (knee) -- until gameday, he said. " Kevin Jones practiced well again, so I am encouraged (that he will play)," said Mariucci, adding fullback Cory Schlesinger did not practice Friday. "Roy (Williams) ran more...he ran strides faster, moved laterally a little bit. Is he ready yet? No, but he's making progress. He's getting closer. That's going to be a game-time decision.
"Sometime during the Pats game last week, I decided that Tomlinson was the best overall running back of my lifetime. There's nothing he can't do: deadly receiver, tough inside runner, explosive to the outside, you name it." - ESPN's Bill Simmons
