  • Nazair Jones: Cut by Buffalo

    Jones was released Friday, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

    The Bills are running pretty deep at defensive line, especially after picking two players at the position with their first two picks in the 2021 Draft, so Jones -- who was just signed in June -- is the first to go as the team enters training camp.

  • Bills' Nazair Jones: Inks with Buffalo

    Jones signed with Buffalo on Tuesday, Maddy Glab of the Bills' official site reports.

    Jones has some decent NFL experience, playing in 20 regular-season games for the Seahawks between 2017 and 2019. He'll compete for one of the final roster spots when the Bills head to training camp in a few weeks with a deep group of defensive linemen.

  • Nazair Jones: Let go by Seattle

    Jones (knee) has been waived by the Seahawks with a failed physical designation, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle reports.

    Jones was selected by Seattle in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft. He had a promising rookie campaign, as he recorded two sacks, an interception and a fumble recovery across 11 games. However, injuries ultimately derailed his last two seasons. The 25-year-old apparently has not recovered from the knee injury that landed him on injured reserve last year.

  • Seahawks' Nazair Jones: Moves to IR

    Jones (knee) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

    Jones had the knee injury crop up last week and was unable to play in Saturday's preseason contest versus the Chargers. The specifics of the injury remain unclear, but the 24-year-old won't be able to return this season since the move to IR occurred before roster cutdowns.

  • Seahawks' Nazair Jones: Dealing with knee issue

    Jones is being hampered by a knee injury, Andy Patton of Seahawks Wire reports.

    The injury could force Jones to miss Saturday's preseason contest against the Chargers, but it's unclear how serious the issue is. The 24-year-old is currently listed at the bottom of Seattle's defensive end depth chart along with Branden Jackson.

  • Seahawks' Nazair Jones: Shifting to outside

    Jones will play as a defensive end in 2019, Brady Henderson of ESPN reports.

    Jones spent his first two seasons with the Seahawks as a defensive tackle, and he worked in a limited role with underwhelming results. Poona Ford established himself as a dependable run-stopper down the stretch last season, so the Seahawks feel comfortable bumping Jones to the outside. There's an opening at defensive end for the time being after Frank Clark was traded to the Chiefs, but the Seahawks are expected to draft at least one edge rusher which will further cut into Jones' projected usage.

  • Seahawks' Nazair Jones: Takes step back in 2018

    Jones made seven tackles (two solo) in nine games this season.

    Jones had an opportunity to rise up the depth chart into a starting role, but he averaged just 14.6 defensive snaps per game after being beaten out by trade acquisition Shamar Stephen and undrafted rookie Poona Ford. Stephen could walk in free agency, but Ford is expected to bump into the starter role in 2019, likely leaving Jones as a backup again.

  • Seahawks' Nazair Jones: Inactive for Week 10

    Jones (illness) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Rams, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

    Jones has not suited up since Week 6 and will miss Sunday's tilt against the Rams due to an illness. As long as Jones remains sidelined, Poona Ford and Rasheem Green could see increased defensive snaps.

  • Seahawks' Nazair Jones: Returns to action Saturday

    Jones (hip) made two tackles (one solo) and one pass breakup in Saturday's 24-14 preseason loss to the Chargers.

    The 2017 third-round pick has the potential to be a solid pass rusher after he notched two sacks, three pass breakups and one interception in 11 games during his rookie campaign. However, Jones is on track for a reserve interior lineman role behind Jarran Reed and Tom Johnson.

  • Seahawks' Nazair Jones: Mystery injury was hip flexor

    Coach Pete Carroll considers Jones "day-to-day" with a hip injury, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle reports.

    Jones sat out of Thursday's preseason opener against the Colts with this injury. The second-year pro generated 19 tackles (10 solo) and two sacks in a reserve role last year. He'll battle Tom Johnson, who will be 34 years old when the season commences, for a starting spot in Week 1.

  • Seahawks' Nazair Jones: Sits out with unknown issue

    Jones (undisclosed) sat out of Tuesday's practice, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

    Jones is listed as a backup behind Jarran Reed, but he should come in handy for pass rush situations, as he had two sacks, three pass breakups and one interception in 11 games last year. The Seahawks have a strong defensive front once again, however, with Reed, Tom Johnson and Shamar Stephen (knee) -- the latter two combined for more than 1,000 snaps with the Vikings last season. Therefore, Jones will be hard-pressed to get on the field enough to be a consistent IDP threat.

  • Seahawks' Nazair Jones: Won't play Week 17

    Jones (ankle) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Cardinals, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

    Jones sustained a setback in his recovery and did not practice this week, so him being ruled out was to be expected. Garrison Smith should see increased reps as a reserve defensive tackle in Sunday's regular-season finale.

  • Seahawks' Nazair Jones: Lands on injured reserve

    Jones (ankle) was placed on injured reserve by the Seahawks on Saturday.

    Jones had already been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Cardinals, so this move simply ensures Jones' absence for the playoffs, should Seattle earn a wild-card berth. The 23-year-old finishes his rookie season with 19 total tackles, two sacks and an interception.

  • Seahawks' Nazair Jones: Suffers setback in recovery

    Jones (ankle) suffered a setback in his recovery and didn't practice Wednesday, Gregg Bell of the News Tribune reports.

    Jones has already missed the last four games with an unspecified ankle injury and seems unlikely to make it back for Sunday's season finale against the Cardinals.

  • Seahawks' Nazair Jones: Inactive Sunday

    Jones (ankle) is listed as inactive for Sunday's game against the Cowboys.

    Jones will now miss a fourth consecutive game. Branden Jackson and Marcus Smith could pick up some additional snaps in his absence.

  • Seahawks' Nazair Jones: Unlikely to play Sunday

    Jones (ankle) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Cowboys, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.

    Jones hasn't seen game action since Week 12 and did not practice this week, so even the doubtful designation seems optimistic. Garrison Smith should serve as the Seahawks' reserve defensive tackle Sunday with the rookie third-round pick unlikely to suit up.

  • Seahawks' Nazair Jones: Unavailable Week 15

    Jones (ankle) is officially inactive for Sunday's game against the Rams.

    Jones was listed as doubtful and didn't practice this week, so this was to be expected. Starters Jarran Reed and Sheldon Richardson are the Seahawks only available defensive tackles, and the team will need to shuffle their defensive line rotation Sunday.

  • Seahawks' Nazair Jones: Doubtful for Sunday

    Jones (ankle) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Rams, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

    Jones didn't participate at practice this week in any capacity, making it surprising he hasn't been ruled out for Sunday. It seems things are trending in that direction in any event for Jones, who has missed the Seahawks' previous two games.

  • Seahawks' Nazair Jones: Set to miss another game

    Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said Friday that Jones (ankle) won't play Sunday against the Jaguars, Brady Henderson of ESPN.com reports.

    Carroll suggested that Jones was about a week away from playing, so it doesn't sound as though the defensive tackle hit a serious snag in his recovery in recent days. Jones, who sat out last week's win over the Eagles with the injury, will likely be included in the team's defensive-line rotation once cleared to play again.
