Jones (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's Week 17 tilt versus the Patriots, the team's official site reports. The backup tight end will thus close out the regular season on the sidelines, with Dion Sims and MarQueis Gray helming the position once again.
Jones (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's Week 16 tilt versus the Bills, the team's official site reports. Jones' expected absence leaves the tight end reps in the hands of starter Dion Sims and backup MarQueis Gray.
Jones caught three of four targets for 42 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 27-23 win over the Jets. Jones tied for the team lead in catches while leading them in receiving yardage and scoring the lone Dolphins receiving touchdown. He came in with just three catches for 12 yards on the season, and there's little reason to believe this strong performance was much more than an outlier against an exploitable opponent.
Jones and teammate MarQueis Gray are expected to serve as the Dolphins' lone tight end options Sunday against the Jets, Chris Perkins of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports. Jones boasts three catches for 12 yards on the season, but with Jordan Cameron and Dion Sims both slated to miss Sunday's game due to concussions, he and Gray could benefit from an increased snap count.
The Broncos have listed S T.J. Ward, RB Juwan Thompson, LB Brandon Marshall , OL Paul Cornick, OL Michael Schofield, TE Dominique Jones and DT Mitch Unrein as inactive Week 17 against the Raiders. Marshall was the only player ruled out prior to Sunday. Both Cornick and Ward were listed as questionable. Cornick is dealing with a toe injury. Ward has a neck issue. Thompson was actually listed as probable, but will not play. He has both hip and knee injuries. Unrein was also listed as probable. He's dealing with an illness. The other two players listed are healthy scratches.
