Cardinals' Tony Jones: Lands reserve/future deal with AZ
The Cardinals signed Jones to a reserve/future contract Monday, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports.
Davis is a four-year NFL veteran who has seen action with three different teams, including two stints with New Orleans, over the past two campaigns. He played a prominent role in Weeks 2 and 3 with the Saints this season, tallying 65 yards and two touchdowns on 20 rushes along with 21 yards on four receptions, but he was released two weeks later. Jones subsequently signed with Arizona and spent much of the remainder of the campaign on the practice squad but did see action in three games, carrying five times for 25 yards and adding three catches for 16 yards. He'll have a chance to complete for a spot on the team's roster during training camp this summer.... See More ... See Less
Tony Jones: Back on practice squad
Jones reverted to the Cardinals' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's transaction log.
With Emari Demercado (toe) still sidelined, Jones was the only Arizona running back to get snaps (16 of 61 on offense) and touches (two) behind James Conner's 42 plays and 16 touches for 63 yards from scrimmage Sunday against the Texans. Both of Jones' touches went for 10-plus yards en route to 21 total yards. Meanwhile, Keaontay Ingram was active but didn't play, and newcomer Michael Carter was a healthy scratch. It remains to be seen who may get looks behind Conner on a weekly basis moving forward, but Demercado, Jones and Carter (once he's acclimated) could be the best bets.... See More ... See Less
Cardinals' Tony Jones: Joins active roster
The Cardinals elevated Jones to their active roster Saturday, Howard Balzer of GoPHNX.com reports.
The 25-year-old out of Notre Dame was likely added to Arizona's active roster to ensure depth at running back, with Emari Demercado (toe) missing Sunday's contest. Jones has made six appearances for the Cardinals and Saints in 2023, recording 111 total yards on 31 touches.... See More ... See Less
Tony Jones: Goes back to practice squad
Jones reverted to Arizona's practice squad Monday, per the NFL's transaction log.
Jones took one carry for 13 yards in Sunday's win versus the Falcons. If Emari Demercado is able to return in Week 11, Jones will probably remain relegated to the practice squad.... See More ... See Less
Cardinals' Tony Jones: Moves to active roster
Jones signed to the Cardinals' practice squad and then was elevated to the active roster Saturday.
The team also activated James Conner (knee) on Saturday, making Jones the third healthy running back on the depth chart behind Conner and Keaontay Ingram. Jones was claimed off waivers from the Saints on Oct. 9 and then cut by the Cardinals twice before being brought back. The fourth-year pro has appeared in one game for Arizona this year, carrying the ball three times for two yards and catching two passes for five yards.... See More ... See Less
Tony Jones: Cut by Arizona
The Cardinals waived Jones Thursday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.
With James Conner (knee) eligible to return from injured reserve this week, Jones is no longer needed in the desert. In one game with the Cardinals, Jones rushed three times for two yards and caught two passes for five yards on three targets.... See More ... See Less
Cardinals' Tony Jones: Gets five touches Sunday
Jones turned three carries into two yards and hauled in two of three targets for five yards during Sunday's 27-0 loss in Cleveland.
The Cardinals offense was unable to get much going against the Browns' staunch defense with rookie fifth-round pick Clayton Tune under center, and without two playmakers in running back Emari Demercado (toe) and wide receiver Michael Wilson (shoulder). Jones split the RB reps with Keaontay Ingram, with the former getting 21 of 52 offensive snaps to the latter's 22. And Ingram's output (eight yards on nine carries) narrowly outpaced Jones' seven yards from scrimmage. It's unclear if Demercado will make himself available this coming Sunday versus the Falcons, but Arizona's top running back James Conner (knee) can be designated for return from IR this week, so if Conner is activated, the trickle down effect likely would leave Jones with little to work with moving forward....

Cardinals' Tony Jones: Comes up from practice squad
The Cardinals signed Jones off their practice squad Thursday, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports.
Jones initially joined Arizona in early October, when multiple injuries struck the backfield. As of Thursday, James Conner (knee) still must miss at least one more game while injured reserve, Emari Demercado sat out Wednesday's practice due to a toe injury, and Damien Williams (foot) was placed on the practice squad injured list earlier this week. With this transaction, Jones and Keaontay Ingram now are the only healthy running backs on the Cardinals' active roster.... See More ... See Less
Tony Jones: Back in Arizona
The Cardinals signed Jones to their practice squad Friday, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports.
Even though Arizona waived Jones just two days ago, they've agreed to bring him back on the team's practice squad. The Cardinals originally picked up the 25-year-old running back off waivers Oct. 9 after New Orleans cut ties with him two days earlier. Jones has recorded 70 rushing yards on 21 attempts with two touchdowns this year, and he'll give Arizona even more running back depth with James Conner (knee) missing multiple games.... See More ...
