The 2015 season for Colts defensive tackle Arthur Jones is in doubt with the tackle reportedly needing surgery to repair torn ligaments in his ankle, sources told NFL.com. Jones could be placed on the injured reserve/designated to return list. Jones produced 23 tackles and 1 1/2 sacks in nine games last season.
The Patriots have run for 480 yards and 10 touchdowns in two recent meetings with the Colts. Indy defensive end Arthur Jones, a 6-3, 337-pounder, wasn't there for either. Jones, who missed the Week 11 meeting with an ankle injury, is set to play in Sunday's AFC Championship Game at New England. "(Jones has) made a huge impact," Colts coach Chuck Pagano told ESPN.com. "It was too bad that we lost him early for that span. Right now he's feeling really good and he's very disruptive. He does a great job along with those other guys of forcing double-teams. He commands a double-team. He's sideline to sideline. He's a great effort, great energy guy, can give you some push in the middle of the pocket in the pass game. Certainly, it's good to have Art playing at the level that he's playing at." Without Jones this season, the Colts have given up 4.7 yards per carry. With him, they're yielding 3.7 ypc. Indy is a 6.5-point underdog Sunday.
