Jones completed 1-of-4 passes for 34 yards and two interceptions in the Steelers' loss to the Seahawks on Sunday. On the first play of the second quarter, Pittsburgh opted to run a fake field goal, with Jones tossing the ball to cornerback Jeremy Lane. Lane then returned the interception 54 yards to the Steelers' 24-yard line, ultimately leading to a Doug Baldwin touchdown catch from Russell Wilson. Jones returned for the final possession of the game, replacing Ben Roethlisberger (concussion), which ended with a pick by safety Kam Chancellor. If Big Ben cannot complete the league's concussion protocol, Jones would likely start in Week 13 against the Colts.
Following the Steelers' bye, Jones (ankle) is not listed on the team's Week 12 injury report. Nor is starting QB Ben Roethlisberger, which ensures that Jones will work in a backup capacity this weekend against the Seahawks.
Jones will have an MRI on his injured left ankle, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports. Jones was forced into an early exit from Sunday's game against the Browns after injuring his ankle during the first quarter. While the extent of Jones' injury is unclear right now, the results of his MRI should help determine his status moving forward. With the Steelers currently on their bye week, Jones has an extra week to heal, although so too does starter Ben Roethlisberger (foot), who impressed in relief of Jones on Sunday.
Jones (ankle) completed 3-of-4 passes for 23 yards in the Steelers' win over the Browns on Sunday. Jones was forced from the game on just the seventh offensive snap, and had to be carted to the locker room. Fortunately for Pittsburgh, "back up" quarterback Ben Roethlisberger (foot) was able to step in and lead the team to a win. Both quarterbacks will get some much-needed time to heal, as the Steelers have a bye in Week 11.
Jones left Sunday's game against the Browns in the first quarter with a left ankle injury. With Mike Vick inactive and Jones carted off the field Sunday, Ben Roethlisberger, who is dealing with a left foot sprain and began the contest in a backup capacity, took over at QB for the Steelers.
