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' 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 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.
