  • Vikings' Pat Jones: Impresses down stretch

    Jones logged 32 total tackles, including 1.0 sack and an additional four tackles for loss, in 17 games during the 2023 regular season.

    The 2021 third-round pick saw increased snaps on Minnesota's defense after D.J. Wonnum sustained a quadriceps injury towards the end of the season, and he took advantage of the opportunity. In the Vikings' final three games, Jones racked up 16 total tackles, including 1.0 sacks and two additional tackles for loss. The 26-year-old also saw the most snaps he's seen as a pass rusher in his career in 2023 (388) and finished third on the team with 32 pressures, almost 20 more than he had in 2022. Jones is heading into the final season of his rookie contract, and he'll likely continue to contribute as a rotational pass rusher.

  • Vikings' Pat Jones: Racks up nine stops in Week 17 loss

    Jones tallied nine tackles (five solo) Sunday in a loss to the Packers.

    Jones finished third on the Vikings with nine tackles in the defeat, recording his highest total this season. He also played on a campaign-high 95 percent of the team's defensive snaps after hovering around the 50-percent mark for most of the campaign. Jones' extended opportunity came as a result of D.J. Wonnum (quadriceps) landing on IR last week due to injury, and Jones figures to see plenty of work again in Minnesota's regular-season finale Sunday in Detroit.

  • Vikings' Pat Jones: Gets first sack of season

    Jones had six total tackles, including a sack and two additional tackles for loss, in Sunday's loss to Detroit.

    It was Jones' first sack of the season as he played a season-high 52 snaps on defense. Jones could get more playing time and be depended on in the pass rush with D.J. Wonnum likely to miss time with a quad injury.

  • Vikings' Patrick Jones: No tackles in loss

    Jones didn't have a tackle but had two QB hurries, according to Pro Football Focus, in Sunday's loss to Tampa Bay.

    Jones was heavily in the mix as an edge rusher while playing on 40 of the defense's 68 snaps. He struggled against the run in the loss, so he'll need to improve to stay in the rotation.

  • Vikings' Patrick Jones: Practices in full Tuesday

    Jones (illness) was a full participant at practice Tuesday ahead of Saturday's game versus the Giants, Alec Lewis of The Athletic reports.

    After missing Minnesota's win versus Indianapolis in Week 15, Jones appears to be on track to return for Week 16. The 2021 third-rounder has tallied 19 tackles and three sacks through 13 games in 2022.

  • Vikings' Patrick Jones: Out Saturday

    Jones (illness) is listed as inactive for Saturday's game against the Colts, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

    Jones came down with an illness Thursday, and it is bad enough to keep him sidelined against the Colts. His absence means Luiji Vilain could potentially see some extra snaps providing depth at weakside linebacker, especially if Danielle Hunter suffers any setbacks with his neck.

  • Vikings' Patrick Jones: Comes down with illness

    Jones (illness) didn't practice Thursday, per the team's official site.

    Jones didn't partake in any of Thursday's practice after popping up on the injury report with an illness. With Minnesota set to host the Colts on Saturday, the 6-foot-4 linebacker will now carry a questionable tag into this weekend's matchup, and his availability status could ultimately come down to a game-time decision. If Jones ends up sitting out, Luiji Vilain and D.J. Wonnum are candidates to receive added snaps behind starters Danielle Hunter (neck) and Za'Darius Smith.

  • Vikings' Patrick Jones: Two sacks in larger role

    Jones had three total tackles and two sacks in Sunday's win at Miami.

    Jones saw a large increase in playing time (38 snaps) on defense with D.J. Wonnum out with an illness and showed a spark in the pass rush. The 2021 third-round pick could become a bigger part of the rotation as a result.
