  • Broncos' D.J. Jones: Sees limited action Saturday

    Jones assisted on one tackle in Saturday's 21-20 preseason loss to the 49ers.

    Jones suffered a concussion in Denver's first preseason contest against Arizona, but the veteran was able to clear protocol in time to garner active status for Saturday's tilt in San Francisco. The 28-year-old nose tackle should continue to play a significant role on the Broncos' interior defensive line in 2023.

  • Broncos' D.J. Jones: Back at practice

    Jones (knee) was able to participate at the Broncos' practice Thursday, Zac Stevens of reports.

    Jones has been dealing with a knee injury as the Broncos have been ramping up their offseason program in recent weeks, but it appears the nose tackle is good to go moving forward. Jones is expected to be a staple on Denver's interior defensive line in his second year with the franchise. He recorded 34 tackles, including two sacks, while deflecting a career-high six passes over 15 games last season.

  • Broncos' D.J. Jones: Still recovering

    Jones (knee) will not be participating in OTAs, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

    Jones missed the last two weeks of the 2022 campaign due to a possibly related knee injury. How much more time he'll need to recover is unknown, but when healthy, Jones should be a significant piece of the Broncos' defensive line rotation.

  • Broncos' D.J. Jones: Ruled out for Week 18

    Jones (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's matchup against the Chargers, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports.

    Jones will miss back-to-back games to end the 2022 campaign due to a knee injury. Mike Purcell (elbow) and Eyioma Uwazurike are candidates for increased roles in Jones' absence. Jones will end his first season in Denver with 34 tackles, six pass defenses and two sacks across 15 appearances.

  • Broncos' D.J. Jones: Sidelined on New Year's Day

    Jones (knee) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Chiefs.

    Jones will now miss his first matchup of the 2022-23 campaign as a result of the knee injury. In his absence, Mike Purcell should handle a larger role at nose tackle this weekend, while Eyioma Uwazurike is slated to receive more rotational snaps on Denver's defensive line.

  • Broncos' D.J. Jones: Questionable to play versus KC

    Jones (knee) is considered questionable for Sunday's game against the Chiefs.

    Jones was sidelined for first the two practices of Week 17 with a knee injury, though it's unclear when or how this issue first arose. The 27-year-old nose tackle was able to increase his participation with a limited session Friday, so he'll still have a chance to suit up for Sunday's divisional matchup. Jones has recorded 34 tackles, two sacks and a career-high six passes defended over 15 games this season, and his potential absence would leave Eyioma Uwazurike to assume a bigger role behind presumptive starting nose tackle Mike Purcell.

  • Broncos' D.J. Jones: Available Sunday

    Jones (shoulder/illness) has been deemed active for Sunday's game against the Cardinals.

    Jones has recently dealt with shoulder discomfort that limited him to a season-low 16 defensive snaps last week against Kansas City. He also sat out practice Friday with an illness, but the nose tackle is nonetheless set to make his 14th appearance of the season. However, Jones will likely slot in behind Mike Purcell and DeShawn Williams during Week 15.

  • Broncos' D.J. Jones: Dealing with illness

    Jones (shoulder/illness) is questionable for Sunday's matchup against Arizona, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports.

    Jones continues to deal with shoulder discomfort, but he was trending toward suiting up again after logging back-to-back full sessions to start Week 15 prep. However, he was downgraded to a non-participant Friday due to an illness. The veteran nose tackle has yet to miss a game during his first season with Denver, totaling 32 tackles, five pass defenses and two sacks.
