  • Broncos' D.J. Jones: Concludes second season in Denver

    Jones recorded 46 tackles (30 solo), including two sacks, with three forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries while playing 16 games during the 2023 season.

    Jones showed improvement in his second campaign with the Broncos, recording 12 more tackles than he did in 2022 while making more game-changing plays. The veteran nose tackle's three forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries were both career highs. Jones is heading into the final season of his three-year deal with Denver, so the 29-year-old will look to build off his solid performance this season heading into a contract year.

  • Broncos' D.J. Jones: Won't play Thursday

    Jones (knee) was ruled out for Thursday's game against the Chiefs, according to Troy Renck of Denver 7 News.

    Jones has not practiced since suffering a knee injury during Sunday's loss to the Jets. While the nature of this issue is still unclear, the 28-year-old will now miss at least one contest while his knee continues to recover. His next opportunity to play will come versus the Packers on Sunday, Oct. 22. With Jones sidelined, expect Mike Purcell to step in as Denver's starting nose tackle during Thursday Night Football.

  • Broncos' D.J. Jones: Non-participant Monday

    Jones (knee) was listed as a non-participant on Monday's practice estimate.

    Jones injured his knee in Sunday's loss to the Jets and exited the game after accumulating one solo tackle on 11 defensive snaps. Given Monday's practice was just a walkthrough, his inability to participate does not bode well for his chances to recover in time for Thursday's game in Kansas City. Still, more clarity on his status will come as the week progresses.
