Jones (chest) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Steelers, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports. Jones suffered the injury in the third quarter. He registered six tackles (three solo) prior to picking up the injury.
Jones should retain a starting cornerback role after the Seahawks released Tre Flowers, Brady Johnson of ESPN.com reports. Jones took over as the starting cornerback in Week 4 after Flowers was benched. He's since logged 13 total tackles and one pass defended in two games, while playing 100 percent of the Seahawks' defensive snaps. With Flowers now off the roster, Jones should have a solidified role moving forward.
The Jaguars traded Jones to the Seahawks on Monday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. According to Brady Henderson of ESPN.com, the Jaguars received a 2022 sixth-round draft pick in return. Given Jacksonville's depth at cornerback, Jones may have been cut outright if it wasn't for the trade. The 2017 second-round pick hasn't played more than 322 defensive snaps in a season, and he's played a total of 31 games through four years in the league. Only 25 years old, Jones now steps into a situation that has plenty of uncertainty behind expected starters D.J. Reed and Ahkello Witherspoon.
Jones (Achilles) was placed on injured reserve Saturday. Jones has been dealing with this injury for over a month, and the Jaguars are choosing to shut down the 24-year-old cornerback with nothing to play for besides pride. The 2017 second-round pick finished the 2020 season with 26 tackles, nine pass breakups, two interceptions and a forced fumble through nine games. He'll be an unrestricted free agent in March.
Jones (Achilles) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Bears, John Reid of The Florida Times-Union reports. Jones has been dealing with the Achilles issue since Week 11. He returned to the field for Week 14's matchup against Tennessee but appears to still be struggling with the injury and will now miss his second straight contest. Chris Claybrooks will likely start in Jones' place.
