  • Jones will share backfield duties again with Leonard Fournette in 2021 after the latter re-signed with the Buccaneers on a one-year deal on March 26, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports. Jones logged a team-high 192 carries in 2020, with Fournette a distant second with 97 attempts while appearing in just one fewer game. However, the latter took off in the postseason, beginning with a wild-card win over Washington that Jones missed after suffering a quadriceps pull in pregame warmups. Given Fournette's productivity at the most critical time of year and his superior pass-catching skills, Jones could find himself in a much closer timeshare arrangement in the coming campaign.

  • Jones will undergo surgery to have a pin removed from his left pinky finger Tuesday, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Jones had surgery to address a broken finger back in mid-December, and he'll now undergo another procedure to fully address the issue. After returning from his initial surgery, he was able to play through his finger injury, though he did subsequently miss time due to COVID-19 protocols and a quad contusion, ultimately playing second fiddle to Leonard Fournette during Tampa Bay's playoff run. Jones should remain on track for the tentative start of offseason workouts, and with Fournette on track to become an unrestricted free agent in March, Ke'Shawn Vaughn could end up being his primary competition for the No. 1 backfield spot.

  • Jones rushed 12 times for 61 yards and failed to bring in his only target during the Buccaneers' 31-9 win over the Chiefs in Super Bowl LV on Sunday. As was the case through the Buccaneers' divisional-round and conference-championship wins, Jones played a complementary role to Leonard Fournette, although he did trail his teammate in carries by only four. The third-year back may have never ceded the lead-back role to Fournette had he not been felled by a quadriceps contusion during warmups before a wild-card game against Washington, but Jones still averaged 4.0 yards per carry over the three postseason games he played in. Moreover, Jones just narrowly missed his first 1,000-yard season by 22 yards despite missing two games, and he also set a new career high with seven rushing touchdowns. With Fournette set for unrestricted free agency in March, Jones may find himself battling Ke'Shawn Vaughn for the starting running back job next season.

  • Jones rushed 10 times for 16 yards and did not receive a target during the Buccaneers' 31-26 win over the Packers in Sunday's NFC Championship Game. Jones once again played second fiddle to Leonard Fournette, who logged a total of 17 touches. He also averaged three yards less per carry than Fournette's 4.6, and Jones' complete lack of a role in the passing game seems to further cement the fact the two backs have swapped places on the depth chart ahead of a Super Bowl LV matchup versus either the Bills or Chiefs on Sunday, Feb. 7.

  • Jones (quad/finger) was a full practice participant Friday and doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against Green Bay, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports. After a setback with his quad injury kept him on the sideline for the wild-card round, Jones reentered the mix for last week's 30-20 win over New Orleans, taking 13 carries for 62 yards on 29 percent snap share. Leonard Fournette had 17 carries and five catches on 68 percent of snaps, but he mostly worked behind Jones when both were healthy during the regular season.
