The Dolphins have claimed Jones off waivers from the Patriots, the Palm Beach Post reports. Now healthy, Jones, who missed last season with a calf injury, will bolster the Dolphins' interior line depth. While starting 23 of 28 games for the Patriots between the 2013 and 2014 seasons, Jones tallied a total of 79 tackles and nine sacks.
The Patriots will be at nearly full strength for Sunday's Super Bowl as the following players have been listed as probable: Tom Brady (ankle), Dont'a Hightower (shoulder), Chris Jones (elbow), Akeem Ayers (knee), Darrelle Revis (non-injury-related) and Sealver Siliga (foot). All except Brady were limited participants in practice Friday. The only question mark is center Bryan Stork, who is questionable with a knee injury and was limited in practice Friday. The Patriots are currently 1-point favorites against Seattle.
Patriots quarterback Tom Brady (ankle) was the only full participant in Thursday's practice in preparation for the Super Bowl on Feb. 1 against the Seahawks, according to 710 AM ESPN Radio in Seattle. Cornerback Brandon Browner (knee), linebacker Dont'a Hightower (shoulder), defensive tackle Chris Jones (elbow), wide receiver Brandon LaFell (shoulder, toe), defensive lineman Sealver Siliga (foot) and center Bryan Stork (knee) were all limited participants.
The Patriots released a hypothetical Wednesday practice report during the bye week, with center Bryan Stork being listed as a DNP due to a knee injury. Quarterback Tom Brady also appeared on the report with an ankle injury but would have participated fully in practice. Five players would have been limited if the Patriots would have held practice Wednesday, including wide receiver Brandon LaFell (shoulder, toe), defensive linemen Chris Jones (elbow) and Sealver Siliga (foot), linebacker Dont'a Hightower (shoulder) and cornerback Brandon Browner (knee). New England is a 1-point favorite against Seattle in Super Bowl XLIX after opening as an underdog.
The Patriots have listed DL Chris Jones, DE Zach Moore, WR Brian Tyms, WR Josh Boyce, C Bryan Stork, OL Jordan Devey and RB James White as inactive for the AFC Championship game. Jones and Stork were the only two players listed on the injury report coming into the contest. Jones was considered probable due to an elbow injury. Stork was ruled out due to a knee issue. The other five players listed are considered healthy scratches.
