Texans' Taiwan Jones: Won't play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (hamstring) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Broncos.

Jones has not been on the practice field this week and accordingly will sit out Week 14. Buddy Howell now sits third on the Texans' backfield depth chart.

Texans' Taiwan Jones: Injures hamstring on SNF
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones won't return to Sunday's game against the Patriots after suffering a hamstring injury.

Jones' role is primarily on special teams, so this news shouldn't have much if any effect on Houston's offense. Hamstring injuries are often tough to rehab from, but a further update on Jones' status sometime after the game should help clear up his status moving forward.

Texans' Taiwan Jones: Practices in full
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (hip) was a full participant in Thursday's practice, Sarah Barshop of ESPN.com reports.

Jones was limited in Wednesday's practice, but he now seems back to full health. He'll contribute on special teams Week 8 while playing a reserve role behind Carlos Hyde and Duke Johnson.

Texans' Taiwan Jones: Limited Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (hip) was a limited participant at Wednesday's practice.

Jones has been active for four of seven games but played only on special teams. The Texans brought in a couple of running backs for workouts this week but did not sign anyone, so Jones remains the team's third running back behind Carlos Hyde and Duke Johnson.

Texans' Taiwan Jones: Practicing in full
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (hip) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice.

Jones wasn't able to suit up Week 6 versus the Chiefs due to a hip issue, but he's now resumed practicing without limitations. Barring any setbacks, the veteran running back is set to play his usual role on special teams Sunday against the Colts.

Texans' Taiwan Jones: Inactive for Week 6
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (hip) won't play in Sunday's contest against the Chiefs.

Jones had been limited during practice all week while tending to the hip injury, as the injury will keep him out at least a week. The veteran has yet to record an offensive statistic this season, so his absence won't effect the offense too much. Buddy Howell will be deployed as the team's third-string back.

October 11, 2019 08:36 PM
Texans' Taiwan Jones: Questionable for Week 6
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones is questionable for Sunday's game against the Chiefs with a hip injury.

Jones has been limited in practice all week, indicating that his availability for Sunday could come down to a game-time decision. Even if Jones does suit up, he's not likely to make an impact in the box score, as he has not recorded an offensive statistic so far this season.

Texans' Taiwan Jones: Practices in full
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (hamstring) was a full participant in Thursday's practice.

Jones was limited in practice Wednesday but appears back to full health. He's missed two games due to an elbow injury, but the special teams contributor could be active for Sunday's tilt against the Panthers.

September 25, 2019 10:48 PM
Texans' Taiwan Jones: Limited Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones was a limited participant at Wednesday's practice due to a hamstring injury.

Jones missed the last two games due to an elbow injury.

September 22, 2019 03:04 PM
Texans' Taiwan Jones: Won't suit up Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (elbow) is inactive for Sunday's game versus the Chargers.

Jones will miss his second straight game. When Jones last suited up in Week 1, he was only used in a special teams role since Carlos Hyde and Duke Johnson are the top running backs.

September 20, 2019 04:24 PM
Texans' Taiwan Jones: Tagged as questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (elbow) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game versus the Chargers.

Jones is in danger of missing his second straight game after being a limited participant in practice all week. The 31-year-old only contributed on special teams in the season opener, and he's expected to continue a similar role behind Carlos Hyde and Duke Johnson once healthy.

Texans' Taiwan Jones: Working in limited capacity
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (elbow) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice.

Jones missed this past Sunday's game after suffering an elbow injury during practice. He still worked as a limited participant leading up to that contest, so his limited designation isn't exactly a positive sign. Nevertheless, Jones has two more practices to prove he's ready to go. If he can shake the injury, expect him to make the most of his contributions as a return man.

September 15, 2019 12:04 PM
Texans' Taiwan Jones: Inactive for Week 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (elbow) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Jaguars.

Jones first popped up on the injury report as a limited participant in practice Friday. His absence will open up available snaps on special teams.

September 13, 2019 05:32 PM
Texans' Taiwan Jones: Surfaces on injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (elbow) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game versus the Jaguars.

Jones didn't show signs of an injury until he was a limited participant in Friday's practice. He strictly played on special teams in the season opener, so the offensive dynamic won't be affected if Jones can't go.

Texans' Taiwan Jones: Gets start in preseason opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones rushed seven times for 28 yards and added an 11-yard catch on his lone target while also losing a fumble in Thursday's 28-26 preseason opening loss to the Packers.

Jones got the start in this one and turned in a serviceable performance. He's among the candidates for the No. 3 running back job behind Lamar Miller and the newly-acquired Duke Johnson, but Jones is far from a lock to make the Texans' roster, so he'll need to play well over the remainder of preseason and make sure to avoid putting the ball on the ground again.

Texans' Taiwan Jones: Looks to stick with Texans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones is competing for backup slotting behind Lamar Miller following the release of D'Onta Foreman, Aaron Reiss of The Athletic reports.

At 6-foot, 195 pounds, Jones isn't a bruising back like Jones, but for now there's a wide open competition for depth chart positioning behind Miller. Jones could stick around thanks to his special-teams prowess.

Texans' Taiwan Jones: Lands in Houston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones signed a contract with the Texans on Monday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Jones appeared in six games with the Bills in 2018 as the team's special-teams captain before landing on injured reserve due to a neck injury. Now healthy, the 30-year-old projects to hold a role on special teams, assuming he makes the 53-man roster.

Bills' Taiwan Jones: Placed on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bills moved Jones (neck) to injured reserve Wednesday, Chris Brown of the team's official site reports.

Jones hadn't played since Oct. 14 due to the neck injury and didn't seem to be making much progress in his recovery, as he failed to practice in any capacity prior to the Bills' Week 8 loss to the Patriots. The transaction opens up a roster spot for quarterback Matt Barkley, who was signed to a one-year deal to provide added insurance behind Nathan Peterman while Josh Allen (shoulder) and Derek Anderson (concussion) tend to injuries.

Bills' Taiwan Jones: Out Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (neck) will not play in Monday's matchup with the Patriots, Matthew Fairburn of The Athletic reports.

Jones will miss his second straight game due to a neck injury he suffered in Week 6 against the Texans. His absence at practice throughout the week makes this news relatively unsurprising. LeSean McCoy (concussion) is still in the league's protocol and Chris Ivory has a minor hamstring injury, which leaves Marcus Murphy as the team's only truly healthy back. Even if the first two veterans play Monday -- which still seems likely -- Murphy is the guy most likely to fill Jones' special teams duties.

October 25, 2018 02:20 PM
Bills' Taiwan Jones: Not practicing Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (neck) didn't practice Thursday, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

Jones originally suffered a neck injury in Week 6 against the Texans, and was unable to suit up in Week 7. His status for Week 8 is still up in the air, but this news certainly doesn't bode well for his return to the field. If Jones is unable to suit up in Week 8, Marcus Murphy would likely continue to assume his role on special teams and provide depth at running back.
