Jones said Thursday that his ankle is "100 percent" healthy, Keiana Martin of the 49ers' official site reports. Jones suffered a season-ending ankle injury early December, but he's already resumed running and cutting without issue and looks fully recovered. The 25-year-old has handled a key rotational role along San Francisco's interior defensive line since joining the team as a sixth-round pick in 2017, and he stands to reprise a similar gig for 2020.
Jones may have a season-ending ankle injury, Cam Inman of The San Jose Mercury News reports. Jones logged 33 of a possible 72 defensive snaps in this past Sunday's win over the Saints, but the 24-year-old defensive end suffered a "significant" ankle injury during the contest, according to Jennifer Lee Chan of NBC Sports Bay Area. Coach Kyle Shanahan relayed that it's a different ankle than the one he dealt with earlier this season. At this point, Jones is likely to at least sit out Sunday against the Falcons, but we await an official diagnosis.
Jones (groin) was a full participant in Thursday's practice, Jennifer Lee Chan of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. Jones sat out Week 11's win over the Cardinals due to his groin injury, but he now appears back to full health. Barring any setbacks, expect the 24-year-old to handle his usual workload against the Packers on Sunday.
Jones (groin) was a limited participant at Wednesday's practice, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports. Jones suffered the injury Week 10 and didn't play last Sunday against the Cardinals. The 24-year-old will likely need to practice fully by Friday if he's going to avoid an injury designation for Sunday's matchup with the Packers.
Jones (groin) has already been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Cardinals, Cam Inman of The San Jose Mercury News reports. Jones recorded a sack in the first quarter of Monday night's loss to the Seahawks but only played nine defensive snaps as a result of the injury. He is set for an MRI, and it is likely not a good sign that he's been ruled out for at least one week before even getting test results back. Sheldon Day and Solomon Thomas are the likely beneficiaries while the 24-year-old sits.
