by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Redskins' Arthur Jones: Likely to miss time with injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Redskins head coach Jay Gruden said that Jones dislocated his shoulder in Sunday's win over the Seahawks and "could miss time," John Keim of ESPN.com reports.

Gruden didn't reveal whether or not Jones would require surgery to address the injury, which would likely spell an end to his season. It appears the team will reevaluate Jones in the coming days to determine the best method for his recovery, but no matter what is ultimately decided, it looks as though he won't be ready to play Week 10 against the Vikings.

Redskins' Arthur Jones: Questionable to return to Sunday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones is questionable to return to Sunday's contest against the Seahawks after suffering a shoulder injury.

Jones adds depth for the Redskins along their defensive line so if he is forced out for the rest of the game, it may affect Washington's rotations.

Redskins' Arthur Jones: Signing with Redskins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones is signing with the Redskins, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.

Jones worked out for the Redskins on Tuesday and is now set to join the team as they aim to bolster their defensive line. The veteran missed half of last season due to a groin injury and underwent sports hernia surgery at the beginning of July, which is likely the main reason he failed to make a roster at the start of the season. Jones should give Washington a bit more depth with Matthew Ioannidis set to miss time due to hand surgery.

Arthur Jones: Undergoes sports hernia surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones underwent sports hernia surgery roughly three weeks ago, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

The procedure is likely related to the groin issue that landed Jones on injured reserve for the final eight games of the 2016 season. While it isn't clear when Jones is aiming to return, Rapoport added that the defensive lineman is likely to remain a free agent until after the season begins. Health will be a concern for any team interested in signing the veteran tackle, considering he's missed 33 games in his six-season career.

Arthur Jones: Released by Colts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (groin) was released by the Colts on Friday.

Jones was due to count over $7 million against the cap this season, which was unpalatable for someone that played in just 17 games over the past three seasons. The 30-year-old will now look to land elsewhere and get healthy ahead of the 2017 campaign.

Colts' Arthur Jones: Out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (groin) has been ruled out for Sunday's tilt against the Vikings, Kevin Bowen of Colts.com reports.

Jones was coming off the best game of his 2016 campaign in Week 14 with eight tackles (four solo), but a groin issue will keep him sidelined in Week 15. Hassan Ridgeway could see additional reps at defensive end as a result, although he remain in a back-up role.

Colts' Arthur Jones: Available Sunday against Tennessee
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (illness) is active for Sunday's matchup against Tennessee.

Jones was a bit under the weather Friday, and was excused from the team's practice as a result. As expected, it won't prevent him from suiting up and providing the Colts with another pass rush option.

Colts' Arthur Jones: Questionable to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (illness) is questionable to play Sunday against the Titans, Kevin Bowen of the Colts' official site reports.

Colts' Arthur Jones: Will not play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Although Jones is eligible to reutrn from a suspension, he will not play Sunday as he's among the game day inactives.

Colts' Arthur Jones: Activated from exempt list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones has been activated from the exempt list, Zak Keefer of the IndyStar reports.

Jones was suspended earlier this summer for violating the NFL's policy on PEDs. He was evaluated by the team prior to being activated.

Colts' Arthur Jones: Eligible to return from suspension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (suspension) is back with the Colts and can be activated this week, the team's official website reports.

The Colts will evaluate Jones' conditioning before he's activated, as the team does have a one-week exemption it can use to give the veteran defensive lineman some extra time to get ready. If everything checks out in practice, Jones will make his 2016 debut Sunday against the Bears, though he might have a rather limited role. He's unlikely to emerge as an IDP option, even in deep formats.

Colts' Arthur Jones: Gets four-game PED suspension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones will be suspended for the first four games of the 2016 season for violating the NFL policy on PEDs, Ian Rapoport of NFL.com reports.

Jones missed the entire 2015 season due to torn ligaments in his ankle and did not participate in spring practices. He may have been sidelined to start the season even without the suspension, but this still hurts Indy's depth on the defensive line.

Colts' Arthur Jones: Working toward July return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (ankle) will not participate in spring OTAs, but is scheduled to return to the field with the start of training camp in late July, the Indianapolis Star reports.

Jones missed the entire 2015 season due to torn ligaments in his ankle. It sounds like he's on pace to return, but we'll need to see how he holds up during training camp.

Colts' Arthur Jones: Accepts pay cut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (ankle) accepted a pay cut from $4.5 million to $2.5 million for 2016, but he can earn the difference back through roster bonuses and incentives, ESPN's Field Yates reports.

Jones has been a major disappointment through the first two seasons of his five-year contract, playing just nine games in 2014 and then missing the entire 2015 season due to torn ligaments in his ankle. He was thus a prime candidate to be released, but his willingness to take a pay cut should keep him in Indianapolis for at least one more season. Though not an IDP option, Jones could help shore up Indy's run defense if he's able to stay on the field.

Colts a different team against the run thanks to Art Jones
by Larry Hartstein |

The Patriots have run for 480 yards and 10 touchdowns in two recent meetings with the Colts. Indy defensive end Arthur Jones, a 6-3, 337-pounder, wasn't there for either.

Jones, who missed the Week 11 meeting with an ankle injury, is set to play in Sunday's AFC Championship Game at New England.

“(Jones has) made a huge impact,” Colts coach Chuck Pagano told ESPN.com. “It was too bad that we lost him early for that span. Right now he’s feeling really good and he’s very disruptive. He does a great job along with those other guys of forcing double-teams. He commands a double-team. He’s sideline to sideline. He’s a great effort, great energy guy, can give you some push in the middle of the pocket in the pass game. Certainly, it’s good to have Art playing at the level that he’s playing at.”

Without Jones this season, the Colts have given up 4.7 yards per carry. With him, they're yielding 3.7 ypc.

Indy is a 6.5-point underdog Sunday.
