Jones recorded two tackles (both solo) and two sacks in Sunday's victory over Vikings. Jones doubled his sack output for the year in Sunday's game alone, and now sits with three sacks in 10 games this season. He has not put up much in terms of statistics, but he has been a key component of the Packers' defensive line rotation.
Packers defensive end Datone Jones (head) is active for Sunday's game at San Francisco, the Packers' official site reports. In Week 3, Jones was examined for a potential concussion, but nothing emerged, and he'll be available to the defensive line rotation Sunday. His sparse usage (just 18 percent of the defensive snaps) this season hasn't lent itself to individual defensive player relevance.
The Packers reinstated defensive end Datone Jones from the suspended list Tuesday, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. Jones will be eligible to play in Week 2 after sitting out the Packers' season opener while serving a one-game suspension. He will likely be a reserve when Letroy Guion returns from a suspension of his own, but with Guion out another two weeks, Jones could get a chance to start.
Packers defensive end Datone Jones' one-game suspension by the NFL is related to an incident where he was ticketed for marijuana possession, according to the Milwaukee Wisconsin Journal Sentinel. According to a Green Bay police report, Jones was ticketed for possession of marijuana just hours after the Packers returned to Wisconsin following their loss to the Seahawks in the NFC Championship game. He was convicted and paid a $880 fine. The NFL suspended Jones for one game last week for violating the league's substance abuse program.
Packers defensive lineman Datone Jones will be suspended for one game for violating the NFL's substance-abuse policy, according to NFL.com. Jones will miss Green Bay's season-opener against the Bears. In 2014, Jones totaled 22 tackles and 1 1/2 sacks in 13 games played.
