Jones (ankle) is active for Thursday's matchup with the Bengals.
Though he was listed as questionable it was expected that Jones would be active for Thursday's tilt after practicing fully on Tuesday and Wednesday. He recorded two tackles in last week's win over the Browns.
Jones was able to practice fully on both Tuesday and Wednesday, which should mean he'll be ready for game action on Thursday. He figures to provide depth at defensive end, while starters Mario Williams and Cameron Wake remain healthy.
Jones was limited in Monday's practice session due to an ankle injury. He was questionable for Sunday's win over the Browns, but ended up taking the field for 55 plays, recording three tackles in the process. His full participation Tuesday makes it likely that he'll be on the field once again for Week 4, although the
Jones turned an ankle during Thursday's practice and did not participate on Friday. However, he was witnessed walking without a limp after Friday's session and appears to have a favorable chance to play. If he's ultimately ruled out, Cameron Wake may be called upon to receive more playing time than he's been given to start the 2016 campaign.
Jones' deal is reportedly worth more than $1.5 million, and although he's recovering from offseason knee surgery, the veteran will help Miami's options while Cameron Wake comes back from his Achilles tear. A starter in 31 of 32 games for the Lions the past two years, Jones posted 31 tackles and 4.5 sacks last season.
