    Jacoby Jones: Released by Steelers

    The Steelers have released Jones, ESPN.com reports. Three fumbles on 15 returns for the Steelers, one for a turnover, led to his release, though we suppose that Jones could still catch on elsewhere as a depth wideout/return option for a playoff-bound team.

    Steelers' Jacoby Jones: Loses job as primary returner

    Jones has been removed as the Steelers' primary return man, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports. Jones entered Sunday's game against the Colts as both the Steelers' kick returner and punt returner, but he lost both jobs after fumbling twice in the contest. With Jones demoted, Antonio Brown will be the Steelers' punt returner, and Markus Wheaton will handle kickoff returns.

    Steelers' Jacoby Jones: Benched after fumbling twice

    Jones was benched after fumbling two first-half kick returns in Pittsburgh's win over Indianapolis on Sunday. Signed last month off waivers from San Diego, Jones finished with just 19 total return yards and one lost fumble. In four game with the Steelers, Jones has averaged 24.4 yards per kick return and 3.2 yards per punt return. His roster spot may be in jeopardy, especially after Antonio Brown, who took over for Jones, returned a punt 71 yards for a touchdown.

    Steelers' Jacoby Jones: Claimed on waivers

    The Steelers have claimed Jones on waivers from the Chargers. While Jones seems unlikely to make a big impact in the Steelers' passing game, his addition will bolster the team's punt and kick return units.

    Jacoby Jones: Released by Chargers

    The Chargers released Jones on Tuesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. After agreeing to a two-year deal at the outset of free agency in March, the Jacoby-Jones-in-San-Diego experiment didn't go as planned, to say the least. While failing to be targeted even once, his handful of excursions as a returner yielded few positive results (five punt returns for minus-four yards, but nine kick returns for 193 yards). With Jones out of the picture, the Chargers could turn to Javontee Herndon in the return game.

    Chargers' Jacoby Jones: Return game is non-existent

    Through the first half of the season, Jones has failed to breathe any life into the Chargers return game, which is historically bad at this stage, the San Diego Union-Tribune reports. Jones returned one punt on Sunday at Baltimore, and he collided with a teammate for a 2-yard loss. The Chargers unbelievably have just one punt-return yard this season through eight games. That trails only the 1972 Patriots for the worst in NFL history after half of a season. In fairness to Jones, he has dealt with an ankle injury for better part of this season, but he was brought in on a two-year $5.5 million contract specifically to address San Diego's woeful return game, and he has quite obviously not done the job. With eight games to go, and the Chargers season pretty much over at 2-6, it seems unlikely that Jones will make it to the second year of that deal.

    Chargers WR Jacoby Jones good to go Monday

    Chargers wide receiver Jacoby Jones (ankle) is listed as active for Monday's game against the Steelers. His return arrives at a good time for the Chargers, with fellow wideout Stevie Johnson out Monday, though Jones is likely to make most of his initial impact in the team's return game.

    Chargers WR Jacoby Jones listed as questionable for Week 5

    Chargers wide receiver Jacoby Jones (ankle) is listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Steelers. Jones has not played since injuring his ankle in Week 1, but he will have a chance to return to action Monday after getting in some work at practice during the week. If Jones plays he figures to work as either the Chargers' third or fourth receiver with Steve Johnson (hamstring) sidelined.

    Chargers WR Jacoby Jones (ankle) practices Friday
