Jones underwent offseason surgery recently to address a lingering issue in his left ankle and is expected to be sidelined for two months, Cameron Wolfe of NFL Network reports. Despite the surgery, Jones is still expected to be ready for the start of training camp. The 2015 first-round pick finished the 2021 campaign with 58 tackles (47 solo), 10 pass breakups and one forced fumble across 16 appearances.
Jones racked up 58 tackles (47 solo), 10 pass breakups and one forced fumble across 16 appearances in 2021. Jones once again served as a pillar of Miami's secondary in 2021 across from Xavien Howard, though his quality of play doesn't usually translate to favorable IDP stats. The Dolphins have a potential "out" in the 29-year-old's contract this offseason that would result in $4.2 million in dead cap money, but the team could instead attempt to explore a restructured deal.
Jones (quadriceps) was a non-participant at Wednesday's practice, Marcel Louis-Jacques of ESPN.com reports. Coach Brian Flores said Monday that Jones was considered day-to-day with the quad injury, and the cornerback was a DNP at the first practice of the week. The 29-year-old likely will need to practice in some capacity Thursday or Friday to have a chance of suiting up this weekend.
Jones (groin/Achilles) was a full participant in Thursday's practice, Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald reports. Jones appears on track for Sunday's contest in San Francisco after having missed back-to-back games. Barring any setbacks during Friday's practice, Jones stands to resume handling his usual starting workload across from Xavien Howard.
Jones (groin/Achilles) was limited in Wednesday's practice, Josh Tolentino of The Athletic reports. Coach Brian Flores said Monday that Jones is expected to play Sunday in San Francisco barring a setback, and the cornerback's limited practice to start the week does nothing to dispel that notion. Jones will ideally be able to upgrade to a full practice as the week goes along, but it wouldn't be surprising to see him log limited sessions the rest of the way as he prepares to rejoin his teammates on the field for the first time since Week 2.
