  • Dolphins' Brandon Jones: Strong end to rookie contract

    Jones racked up 48 tackles (36 solo), four pass breakups, two interceptions and one fumble, which he recovered, across 16 regular-season appearances in 2023. Jones, a 2020 third-round pick, handled his usual reserve role at safety for Miami, starting six contests due to injuries ahead of him on the depth chart. He performed admirably when given the opportunity, especially in a Week 15 win over the Jets in which he logged two INTs. It wouldn't be surprising to see the Dolphins work to retain Jones on a team-friendly deal this offseason, given his fit and familiarity in the secondary.

    Jones tallied five tackles (five solo) and two interceptions during Miami's 30-0 win over the Jets on Sunday. Jones got the start at safety with DeShon Elliott (concussion) out and had his best performance of the season, snagging two interceptions. Through 13 games this season, the 2020 third-round pick has totaled 31 tackles (23 solo) in addition to his two picks.

  • Dolphins' Brandon Jones: Healthy ahead of Week 11

    Jones (concussion) did not appear on the Dolphins' injury report Wednesday. Jones missed the team's loss to the Chiefs in Germany in Week 9 while dealing with a concussion, but he now appears ready to go for Sunday's game against the Raiders. The 25-year-old will be back in his role as a backup option at safety in Miami's secondary.

  • Dolphins' Brandon Jones: Won't play Week 9

    Jones (concussion) did not travel with the team to Germany on Wednesday and will not play in Week 9 against the Chiefs, Marcel Louis-Jacques of ESPN.com reports. Jones took over as the starting free safety for Week 8 against the Patriots after Jevon Holland (concussion) was ruled out for the contest. Jones sustained a head injury in the contest, did not return and has not progressed through the league's concussion protocols enough to play in Week 9 against the Chiefs. He'll look to work his way back after the bye in Week 11 against the Raiders.

  • Dolphins' Brandon Jones: Exits game Sunday

    Jones (concussion) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Patriots. Jones had seven tackles (four solo) and a pass deflection before leaving Sunday's contest. His status will be worth monitoring for Week 9 against the Chiefs in Germany.

  • Dolphins' Brandon Jones: Back in starting role

    Jones is expected to start for Jevon Holland (concussion) at free safety Sunday against the Patriots, Cameron Wolfe of NFL Network reports. Jones started at strong safety when DeShon Elliott was sidelined with an ankle injury in Week 4, but he's been operating off the bench since. In his lone start, Jones posted two tackles while playing all 56 of Miami's defensive snaps versus Buffalo.

  • Dolphins' Brandon Jones: Getting healthy

    Jones (knee) continues to increase his participation in training camp practices, David Furones of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports. The safety suited up for the Dolphins in a joint practice with the Falcons on Tuesday. Jones started all seven games he played in last season before tearing his ACL and missing the rest of the year. The 2020 third-round pick is slotted to play a key role in Miami's secondary as Week 1 approaches.

  • 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.
