  • 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: 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.

  • 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.

  • Dolphins' Reshad Jones: Won't face Colts

    Jones (chest) is ruled out for Sunday's contest against the Colts, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports. Jones will miss a third straight game due to his lingering chest injury. The starting safety's absence will be a notable blow to Miami's secondary versus Indianapolis. Chris Lammons and Walt Aikens stand to play increased roles on defense in Jones' stead.

  • Dolphins' Reshad Jones: Practicing Thursday

    Jones (chest) will be a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Safid Deen of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports. Jones missed Miami's last two games due to a lingering chest injury, so his return to practice is certainly encouraging. He could need to participate in full Friday in order to suit up for Sunday's divisional tilt against the Jets. Whenever Jones does return to the lineup, he'll start at safety and bring a valuable veteran presence to Miami's secondary.

  • Dolphins' Reshad Jones: Pops up with new injury

    Jones (chest) didn't participate in Wednesday's practice, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports. Jones battled an ankle injury leading up to Week 6's game against the Redskins, but he was able to tough it out. This appears to be a new injury, though, and a DNP for the first practice report of the week is unfavorable for his chances of suiting up Sunday against the Bills.

  • Dolphins' Reshad Jones: Big tackling day

    Jones made eight tackles (seven solo) during Sunday's 17-16 loss to the Redskins. Jones appears to have recovered from his ankle issue, though it's worth noting that he only played 75 of snaps on defense Week 6. Due to his high weekly tackling floor, Jones is a solid option in IDP formats while healthy.

  • Dolphins' Reshad Jones: Listed as questionable

    Jones (ankle) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Chargers, Hal Habib of The Palm Beach Post reports. Jones was a limited participant in practice all week but anticipates suiting up Week 4, according to Alain Poupart of the Dolphins' official site. If the two-time Pro Bowler is indeed cleared to suit up, he projects for a starting role in Miami's secondary.

  • Dolphins' Reshad Jones: Affirms own health

    Jones (ankle) said Wednesday that he's feeling healthy and anticipates playing Sunday versus the Chargers, Alain Poupart of the Dolphins' official site reports. Jones practiced in some capacity Wednesday, his first participation in three weeks. While the two-time Pro Bowler appears confident that he'll retake the field Week 4, it appears possible that he could be limited in some extent. With Minkah Fitzpatrick now in Pittsburgh, Jones is likely to play a starting role in Miami's secondary when back to full health.

  • Dolphins' Reshad Jones: Ruled out for Week 3

    Jones (calf) is ruled out for Sunday's game against the Cowboys, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports. Jones will miss a second consecutive game due to the ankle injury he suffered Week 1 versus Baltimore. Having traded Minkah Fitzpatrick to the Steelers earlier in the week, the Dolphins will now rely on Doug Middleton, Walt Aikens and Steven Parker as their top safeties Week 3.

  • Dolphins' Reshad Jones: Almost ready to practice

    Jones (ankle) didn't participate in Wednesday's practice, but coach Brian Flores said he's "close" to returning, Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com reports. Even if Jones returns to practice in some capacity like Flores says, it's no guarantee that he'll be ready for Sunday's game versus the Cowboys. Jones will have more opportunities when he's healthy since Minkah Fitzpatrick was traded to Pittsburgh. The Dolphins also signed Doug Middleton to add depth at the safety position, and Middleton likely will see a respectable snap count if Jones can't go.

  • Dolphins' Reshad Jones: Won't play Sunday

    Jones will miss Sunday's Week 2 matchup with New England due to an ankle injury, Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald reports. Jones wasn't able to practice in any capacity this week. The 31-year-old sustained the injury during Miami's season-opening loss to Baltimore, in which he managed to play 32 defensive snaps and record five total tackles. Jones was splitting work at free safety with Minkah Fitzpatrick when healthy, so it seems that Fitzpatrick will take on an every-down role in Sunday's contest.

  • Dolphins' Reshad Jones: No clear return timetable

    Coach Brian Flores didn't provide a recovery timetable for Jones (foot) on Monday, Safid Deen of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports. Jones missed some practices last week with the foot injury and arrived at Saturday's scrimmage with his right foot in a cast. Flores said, "He's making progress, but he'll be back as soon as he can be," so the veteran safety's availability for Week 1 remains in question.

  • Dolphins' Reshad Jones: Out with foot injury

    Jones arrived at Saturday's scrimmage with a cast on his right foot, Omar Kelly of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports. Jones missed a couple of practice this week and wasn't present for the start of Saturday's scrimmage due to the foot issue. The specifics of the injury remain unclear, but the 31-year-old appears as though he could be sidelined for an extended period. Bobby McCain should continue seeing work with the starting defense in his absence.

  • Dolphins' Reshad Jones: Caps season with pick-six

    Jones (leg) logged three tackles (one solo), one pass defended, and one interception which he returned for a touchdown before exiting Sunday's 42-17 loss to the Bills due to a leg injury. Jones intercepted rookie quarterback Josh Allen's final throw of the first half, returning it for a touchdown and allowing the Dolphins to momentarily tie up the game. He then exited the season finale in the third quarter with a leg injury. The veteran played well in Miami's secondary this season, despite some disciplinary issues, and ends his season with 69 tackles, eight passes defended and two interceptions across 13 games. Jones will enter the third year of his five-year, $60 million contract in 2019, and is likely to return as one of Miami's starting safeties.

  • Dolphins' Reshad Jones: Expected to sit first quarter

    Jones will remain sidelined during at least the first quarter of Sunday's game against the Packers, Joe Schad of The Palm Beach Post reports. Jones will sit out the beginning of Miami's game against the Packers in Week 10 as an attempt to discipline the starting safety for his decision to remove himself from a Week 9 win over the Jets. It remains to be seen whether Jones will receive a full defensive workload when he does suit up Sunday.

  • Dolphins' Reshad Jones: Playing through torn labrum

    Jones has a partially torn right labrum but will continue to play through the injury, Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald reports. Jones missed two games earlier in the season as he battled the shoulder issue but returned for Week 5 with eight tackles and two pass breakups. The 30-year-old dealt with a similar injury to his left shoulder in 2015 but still managed to post/tie career highs in tackles (135), sacks (two), passes defensed (10) and interceptions (five). The veteran free safety could see limited practice reps as he continues to deal with the injury but he has already proven he can be a productive player when not fully healthy.
