Texans' Taiwan Jones: Has one (important) touch in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones caught his lone target for 34 yards in Saturday's 22-19 overtime win over Buffalo in the AFC wild-card game.

Jones, who played just two snaps on offense, arguably had the most important catch of the game on his only touch. In overtime, quarterback Deshaun Watson miraculously escaped a sack and then found Jones, who had made himself available along the sideline. All 34 yards of Jones' reception came after the catch, and he put the Texans in business deep in Buffalo territory. Two plays later, Ka'imi Fairbairn successfully booted a game-winning 28-yard field goal to send Houston to the divisional round against the Chiefs in Kansas City next Sunday. It was Jones' first postseason catch, which became the second-longest postseason reception in overtime in NFL history.

Texans' Taiwan Jones: Playing Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (hamstring) is active Saturday against the Buccaneers.

Jones will take the field following a two-game absence due to a hamstring injury. The 31-year-old has yet to record an offensive snap in nine games this season.

Texans' Taiwan Jones: Listed as questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (hamstring) is questionable for Saturday's contest in Tampa Bay.

Jones has now been limited in practice for two straight weeks. If he's able to suit up Week 16 after a two-game absence, Jones will play a reserve role in Houston's backfield behind Carlos Hyde (ankle) and Duke Johnson.

Texans' Taiwan Jones: Practices as limited participant
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (hamstring) was a limited practice participant Tuesday.

Jones was sidelined the last two games due to the hamstring injury but may be able to retake the field Week 16. The 31-year-old likely will need to practice fully by Thursday in order to avoid an injury designation at Tampa Bay this weekend.

Texans' Taiwan Jones: Not traveling to Tennessee
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (hamstring) won't travel with the team for Sunday's game against the Titans.

Jones will miss his second straight game. The third-string running back hasn't recorded an offensive snap this year, but Buddy Howell will work as the main reserve option behind Carlos Hyde and Duke Johnson. Jones will aim to get healthy for Week 16's clash against Tampa Bay.

Texans' Taiwan Jones: Draws questionable tag
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (hamstring) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's divisional tilt against the Titans.

Jones logged a trio of limited practices this week, and he appears to have a shot at retaking the field after a one-game absence. If he's able to play, Jones will serve as the No. 3 running back in Houston's backfield.

December 6, 2019 04:12 PM
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.

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.
