Highlights

2011

The 2011 year began with Jon in the starting lineup following a fine season in 2010 and a solid training camp, but another injury limited Jon’s appearances to two games before a stint on the injured list. However, Jon recovered and played in the final seven regular season games, as well as the Western Final and Grey Cup game, where he filled in for the majority of the contest after an injury sidelined Jesse Newman. 

2010

A season of personal triumph for the talented offensive lineman as he overcame three previous years of bad luck to play in 17 games for the Lions as well as the West Semi-Final. Jon started 17 of 18 games, missing only the Aug 7/10 game versus Calgary due to injury.

2009

After suffering a shoulder injury in the Lions’ first preseason game, Jon spent the entire season on the injured list for the second consecutive season.

2008

Did not see any game action spending the season on the injured list.

2007

Joined the Lions in September 2007 after attending training camp with the Arizona Cardinals. Did not see any game action and spent 5 games on the practice roster and one on the injured list.
