  • Dolphins' Brandon Jones: Headed to IR

    Dolphins head coach Mike McDaniel said Monday that Jones (knee) will be placed on injured reserve, Cameron Wolfe of NFL Network reports. The move isn't official yet, but it appears like Jones is headed for injured reserve. McDaniel refrained from calling Jones' knee injury a season-ending one, but he did say it didn't look good. Once he's moved to IR, he'll be forced to miss at least four games, but it sounds like he could be sidelined even longer.

  • Dolphins' Brandon Jones: Managing chest injury

    Jones (chest) was listed as a non-participant on Monday's practice estimation, Travis Wingfield of the Dolphins' official site reports. Jones played 90 percent of the Dolphins' defensive snaps Monday against the Bills, but he apparently sustained a chest injury that would have kept him off the field if Miami had practiced Monday. It's not yet clear whether the issue will impact his availability for Thursday's game against the Bengals.

  • Dolphins' Brandon Jones: New addition to injury report

    Jones (hip) was limited during practice Thursday, Daniel Oyefusi of the Miami Herald reports. Jones was believed to be healthy after Week 1, and he was not on the injury report Wednesday. A late-week downgrade could be a concern, however, it's possible Jones is just sore and the team is taking it easy on him heading into Week 2. An absence on his part against the Ravens would be a significant blow to the secondary, especially with fellow safety Eric Rowe (pectoral) also questionable for the contest.

  • Dolphins' Brandon Jones: Off COVID list, still questionable

    Jones was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Saturday. He's still listed as questionable on the injury report with an illness and will take a separate flight to Tennessee ahead of Sunday's game, Daniel Oyefusi of the Miami Herald reports. The depth safety has quietly been an integral pass rusher for the Dolphins, accumulating five sacks despite playing just 532 defensive snaps. Expect Jones to reprise a similar role provided he's able to shake off the non COVID-19 related illness that has him currently listed as questionable entering Sunday's game.

  • Dolphins' Brandon Jones: Lands on COVID list

    Jones has been placed on the Dolphins' reserve/COVID-19 list. Jones' placement on the COVID list is the result of a positive test, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN. He will be unable to play in Sunday's tilt against the Titans unless he can clear the league's health and safety protocols. Sheldrick Redwine and Clayton Fejedelem would be the lone depth at safety if Jones is unable to take the field.

  • Dolphins' Brandon Jones: Questionable for Week 12

    Jones (ankle/elbow) is questionable for Sunday's game against Houston. Jones had been dealing with the ankle injury in recent weeks before picking up the elbow problem in Week 11. Nevertheless, he was able to put in limited practices all week. Clayton Fejedelem could see extra playing time Sunday if the 29-year-old can't play.

  • Dolphins' Brandon Jones: Dealing with ankle issue

    Jones (ankle) was a limited participant in Monday's practice. Jones played 94 percent of defensive snaps during Sunday's 17-9 win over the Texans, so he may simply be receiving a managed workload ahead of Thursday's matchup against Baltimore. Versus Houston, Jones racked up seven tackles (four solo) and one fumble recovery.

  • Dolphins' Brandon Jones: Double-digit tackles in debut

    Jones had 10 tackles (seven solo) during Sunday's 21-11 loss to the Patriots. Jones finished second on the team in terms of tackles, behind only Jerome Baker (16). The rookie third-round pick put forth a strong showing in his NFL debut, but fantasy managers will likely need to see more evidence before trusting him as a consistent option in IDP formats. Jones will look to keep up his momentum Week 2 against Buffalo.
