  • Reshad Jones: Seriously considering retirement

    Jones has not yet undergone his needed neck surgery due to the COVID-19 pandemic and does not plan to play in 2020, Joe Schad of the Palm Beach Post reports.

    "If I play again is still in the air, but you know I feel like I got in and did everything I needed to do," Jones said. The 32-year-old was limited to four games in 2019 and released by the Dolphins earlier this offseason. He'll need to undergo neck surgery before being able to kick off what could be a lengthy recovery process, making the 2021 campaign likely his earliest possible date to return, should he choose to. If Jones instead opts to call it a career, he'll retire as second in Miami team history in terms of both career tackles and defensive touchdowns.

  • Reshad Jones: Cut by Miami

    The Dolphins informed Jones (undisclosed) on Wednesday that he'll be released, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    The 2010 fifth-round pick spent 10 seasons in Miami, highlighted by a 135-tackle, five-interception showing in 2015. Jones' name has often popped up in trade rumors the past couple of years, with injuries and disagreements with coaches playing a role in his decline from peak form. The 32-year-old safety was bothered by rib and chest injuries in 2019, eventually landing on injured reserve in November after playing just four games. The last few years have been bumpy, but Jones has the type of track record that should lead to another opportunity in a starting job. Meanwhile, the Dolphins have freed up $5.3 million in 2020 cap space to continue their rebuilding project.

  • Dolphins' Reshad Jones: Shifts to IR

    Jones (undisclosed) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

    Jones struggled with rib and chest injuries over the past month, and there's no indication that his current condition is related. The 31-year-old has only played four games this year. Bobby McCain (shoulder) was placed on IR as well, so Steven Parker and Eric Rowe are expected to assume starting duties.

  • Dolphins' Reshad Jones: Six tackles in return

    Jones produced six tackles during Sunday's 37-20 loss to Buffalo.

    Making his return from a four-game absence, Jones logged 67 percent of the defensive snaps and parlayed that playing time into a handful of tackles. He should get even more playing time as he further distances himself from his chest and ribs injuries.

  • Dolphins' Reshad Jones: Makes Week 11 return

    Jones (chest/ribs) is active Week 11 against Buffalo.

    Jones entered this contest with a "questionable" tag, but considering he was able to practice in full the last two days of the week, returning from a four-week absence was the most likely outcome. He'll resume his starting free safety role in the Miami secondary, and barring any setbacks, he should continue to serve as a useful IDP due to his regularly high tackle totals.

  • Dolphins' Reshad Jones: Officially questionable

    Jones (chest/ribs) is listed as questionable for Sunday's divisional contest against the Bills, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

    Jones closed out the week with two full practice sessions, and he appears to be trending toward retaking the field after a four-game absence. However, due to the tricky nature of Jones' injury -- a cracked rib -- he can't yet be considered a guarantee to suit up Week 11.

  • Dolphins' Reshad Jones: Practices without limitations

    Jones (chest/ribs) was a full participant in Thursday's practice.

    Jones has missed the last four games while nursing a cracked rib, and he now appears back to full health. All signs look to be pointing toward the veteran safety suiting up for Sunday's divisional contest against the Bills, during which he stands to play his usual starting role.

  • Dolphins' Reshad Jones: Hopes to play Week 11

    Jones (ribs) said Wednesday that he's "almost 100 [percent]" and hopes to suit up against the Bills on Sunday, Omar Kelly of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

    Jones practiced in a limited capacity Wednesday, just as he managed to do twice last week. After a four-game absence, the starting safety appears to be trending in the right direction to retake the field. He'll have two more opportunities to log a full practice session ahead of Sunday's divisional tilt against the Bills.

  • Dolphins' Reshad Jones: Logs limited practice

    Jones (chest) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

    Jones practiced twice in a limited capacity last week but was still inactive against the Colts, so this isn't necessarily a signal that he's making progress. Continue monitoring his practice status leading up to Sunday's matchup against the Bills, as he boasts solid IDP value with 21 tackles and a pass breakup over three games.
