Jones recorded one tackle (solo) and a fumble recovery in the Steelers' 38-35 win against the Raiders on Sunday. The fumble recovery was the first of his career, and came in Pittsburgh territory just two plays after Ben Roethlisberger had been intercepted by David Amerson. Jones will face the Browns, who are minus four in turnovers, and have lost four straight and six of their last seven games, in Week 10.
Steelers linebacker Jarvis Jones collected five tackles (four solo) including a sack in Pittsburgh's 24-20 win over San Diego on Monday. The sack was Jones' first of the season, and the Steelers' 16th, putting them on pace for 51 sacks on the year. They'll face a difficult challenge in Week 6 against Arizona, which has allowed just seven sacks in their first five games.
Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert wants to see the starting right outside linebacker earn the job this fall, reports the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. With veteran James Harrison re-signing with the team, he and second-year linebacker Jarvis Jones will be in an "open competition" for the job. Jones was hampered by injuries in his rookie season, limiting him to just seven games, totaling 18 tackles and two sacks. Harrison signed with Pittsburgh midway through 2014, totaling 45 tackles with 5 1/2 sacks in 11 games.
While the Steelers were able to activate linebacker Jarvis Jones form short-term IR, they had to place cornerback Cortez Allen on IR in order to accommodate Jones on the 53-man roster. Jones played in three games before he suffered a wrist injury and was then placed on short-term IR. Allen (thumb) was listed as probable heading into Week 14 against Cincinnati.
