The Jaguars placed Jones (ankle) on IR on Thursday.
Jones sat out Jacksonville's Week 6 loss to the Lions due to his ankle injury, and the Jaguars have now deemed the issue severe enough that he'll have to sit out at least the next three games. As long as Jones remains sidelined, Doug Costin will stand to continue handling increased defensive snaps.
Jones (ankle) is officially inactive for Sunday's game against Detroit, Michael DiRocco of ESPN reports.
Jones popped up on the injury report Thursday, failing to suit up in practice. With the 29-year-old sidelined, Doug Costin figures to see an increased role at defensive tackle for the contest. Jones will look to get healthy for next week's matchup against the Chargers.
Jones (ankle/hamstring) is questionable for Sunday's game versus Detroit, John Oehser of the Jaguars' official site reports.
The 29-year-old was added to Thursday's injury report as a non-participant, and his status for Sunday's contest remains in question due to the ankle and hamstring issues. Jones has eight tackles and is playing about half of Jacksonville's defensive snaps through five games. Doug Costin figures to see increased reps should Jones be unable to play Week 6.
Jones (ankle) was a non-participant in Thursday's practice.
After Jones was limited during Wednesday's session, the Georgia product appears to be heading in the wrong direction ahead of Week 6's game against Detroit. Jones will have another shot to suit up in Friday's practice, but if he's forced to miss Sunday's game, look for DaVon Hamilton and Doug Costin to see an uptick in snaps at defensive tackle.
Jones had 31 tackles (15 solo) and two sacks in 16 games this season.
The 28-year-old took over the starting job at defensive tackle down the stretch last season, and he remained in that role for the 2019 campaign and played a career-high 565 defensive snaps. Jones' $4 million salary for 2020 wouldn't count against the cap if he's released, but the Jaguars may be hesitant to make such move with fellow tackle Marcell Dareus (abdomen) already likely to be let go, given his $22.5 million cap hit.
Jones (illness) is officially active for Sunday's game versus Indianapolis.
Jones was added to the injury report Sunday after arriving at the stadium with an illness, but it won't prevent him from playing in the season finale. The 28-year-old should play his usual defensive workload of about 40 snaps, though it's possible he could be somewhat limited due to the illness.
Jones (illness) is questionable to play in Sunday's game against the Colts.
Jones had been healthy leading up the game but reported to the stadium feeling sick, thus the downgrade. It's unclear if Jones will be healthy in time for kickoff, but if he can't go, Dontavius Russell would be in line to see the start at defensive tackle.
Jones had four assisted tackles and a half-sack in Sunday's win against the Jets.
Jones has started seven games this season and is playing about half of the Jaguars' defensive snaps. The 28-year-old has 16 tackles (six solo) and 1.5 sacks through eight games.
Jones had 29 tackles (21 solo) and one sack in 15 games this season.
Jones started six of the final seven games of the season, as he eventually overtook Malik Jackson for a starting spot at defensive tackle. Jackson, Marcell Dareus, Eli Ankou and Jones are all under contract for next season. However, the Jaguars are in dire need of salary relief, considering Jackson and Dareus each carry cap hits exceeding $10 million. Therefore, it's likely at least one of the two is released.
Jones (shin) was a full participant at practice Wednesday.
Jones was inactive for last Thursday's loss to the Titans but appears ready to go for Week 15. The 27-year-old should return to his role as a rotational defensive tackle against the Redskins this week.
Jones (shin) is ruled out for Thursday's game against the Titans, Michael DiRocco of ESPN.com reports.
Jones will remain sidelined as he continues to nurse a shin contusion suffered during a Week 13 loss to the Colts. Eli Ankou will serve as the top backup to starting nose tackle Malik Jackson as long as Jones is unable to suit up.
Jones (shin) is wearing a walking boot after Sunday's 6-0 win over the Colts, Phillip Heilman of The Florida Times-Union reports.
Jones suffered a shin contusion during Sunday's win over Indianapolis, putting his Week 14 status in legitimate question. The 27-year-old's participation in Wednesday's first practice of the week will shed some light on the severity of his injury.
Jones is ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's game against the Colts due to a shin injury, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports.
Jones suffered a shin contusion during the Week 13 contest, according to Tad Dickman of the Jaguars' official site. Malik Jackson will slot into the starting lineup in Jones' stead.
Jones is drawing the start at nose tackle Sunday against the Colts, John Reid of The Florida Times-Union reports.
Jones has averaged a little more than 30 snaps per game as a backup defensive tackle, but he could see an uptick now that he's getting the starting nod over Malik Jackson. It's unclear if the change is going to be maintained for the rest of the season, but Jones will figure to see more snaps for as long as he remains the starter.
Jones (illness) will not carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Titans.
Jones was added to the injury report as a non-participant at Thursday's practice, but he was able to return in full Friday. The 27-year-old should serve his usual role as a rotational defensive tackle for the Jaguars.
Jones is not expected to participate in Thursday's practice due to an illness, Michael DiRocco of ESPN.com reports.
Jones is the second Jaguars player to be held out of practice due to illness, as tailback Brandon Wilds is expected to miss his second straight day. It's unclear at this time how severe the illness is.
Jones (back) was a full participant in practice Thursday.
Jones sat out of Week 17's game in order to rest a lingering back injury. After being limited in practice Wednesday, the defensive tackle no appears to be ready for Sunday's wild-card showdown with the Bills.
Jones has been ruled out for Sunday's tilt against the Titans due to a back injury.
Jones did not practice at all throughout the week, so his absence in Week 17 comes as no surprise, and the Jaguars have no reason to risk his long-term health with the playoffs approaching. Eli Ankou could see additional snaps at defensive tackle behind Marcell Dareus and Malik Jackson.
Jones will sign a four-year, $16 million contract extension with the Jaguars, Jeremy Bergman of NFL.com reports.
Jones has been with the Jaguars for the first four years of his career, and they've opted to reward him with an extension after he recorded 32 tackles during the 2016 campaign. He ended up starting nine of 15 games and was more than a serviceable run stopper, so look for Jones to continue to play a significant role in the defensive line rotation moving forward. Barring any changes prior to training camp, look for Jones to open the preseason as one of the Jaguars' two starters at defensive tackle.
Jones (ankle) does not appear on the Jaguars' injury report in advance of Sunday's game against the Broncos.
Jones missed last week's game against the Bills with an ankle injury, but is now set to reclaim his spot in the starting lineup.
