ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) - (12/29/19) - The son of Detroit Lions wide receiver Marvin Jones has died.

The Lions announced the death of Jones' son, Marlo, in a statement Saturday night, and Jones posted a message about it on Instagram.

Jones said in his social media post: “Rest peacefully our sweet baby boy. You have gained your wings.”

A team spokesman said Marlo was about 6 months old. The Lions said they were informed Saturday by Marvin and Jazmyn Jones about their son's sudden death. The Lions finish their season with a home game Sunday against Green Bay.

Jones went on injured reserve earlier this month.
