Jarvis Jones: Receives injury settlement
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cardinals released Jones (back) with an injury settlement Saturday, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports.

Injuries conspired to contain Jones to only two preseason appearances, during which he notched two tackles (one solo). Otherwise, a quad concern and then a "disc issue" in his back hindered his availability in both practice and games. Once his injury settlement concludes, he'll be eligible to sign with another organization.

Cardinals' Jarvis Jones: Back issue stalling
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones' back hasn't responded to an epidural injection and he may require another, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Sidelined since the early portions of camp, Jones doesn't appear to be nearing a return to action anytime in the near future. With Jones out, Nordly Capi saw a huge chunk of snaps (62) during the team's first preseason contest. Jones' extended absence could also impact his ability to immediately join the pass-rush rotation in his first season with Arizona.

Cardinals' Jarvis Jones: Out with back issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones is out a week with a "disc issue," Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

This is not the same injury that planted Jones on the NFI list to begin training camp, as that was a quadriceps issue. Thankfully this new ailment doesn't seem to be anything serious.

Cardinals' Jarvis Jones: Practicing Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (quad) practiced in a limited fashion Tuesday, Craig Grialou of ArizonaSports.com reports.

The 27-year-old linebacker was able to participate solely in positional drills Tuesday, but this is a sign that he'll be ready for preseason games. Jones will try to hang onto his role as the No. 3 outside linebacker, behind Chandler Jones and Markus Golden (foot).

Cardinals' Jarvis Jones: Lands on NFI list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cardinals placed Jones (quad) on the non-football injury list Friday, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports.

After injuring his quadriceps during a test run Friday, Jones will focus on rehab rather than practice for the foreseeable future. Once cleared, he'll resume serving as depth to starting outside linebackers Chandler Jones and Markus Golden (foot).

Cardinals' Jarvis Jones: Injures quad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones injured his quadriceps during the Cardinals' first session of training camp Friday, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports.

According to head coach Bruce Arians, Jones "tweaked" the quad muscle during Friday's run test, and it will likely require a few days of recovery. A free-agent pickup in the offseason, Jones is expected to provide depth at outside linebacker behind stalwarts Chandler Jones and Markus Golden (foot), who logged 87 and 71 percent of the defensive snaps, respectively, last season. As a result, Jarvis Jones will have difficulty getting on the field in 2017, apart from special-teams duty.

Cardinals' Jarvis Jones: Lands in Arizona
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cardinals signed Jones to a one-year contract Tuesday, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports.

With a pair of standout pass rushers in place at outside linebacker -- Chandler Jones and Markus Golden -- Alex Okafor opted to leave for the Saints in free agency, but the Cardinals quickly scooped up Jones to bolster depth at the position. Jones has some connections to Arizona's coaching staff, namely inside linebacker coach Larry Foote, a former teammate in Pittsburgh, and defensive line coach Brentson Buckner, who shares the same high school with the new Cardinal. Although Jones slightly disappointed as a 2013 first-round pick, he's coming off the most statistically significant season of his career, which included 42 tackles (including one sack), two forced fumbles, one fumble recovery, and one interception in 14 games.

Jarvis Jones: Expected to sign with Cardinals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones is expected to sign with the Cardinals, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

The former first-round draft pick seems poised for a change of pace as he heads to the desert after spending the first four seasons of his career with the Steelers. The 27-year-old has been bogged down by injuries as he has failed to play a full season so far in his career. In 14 games last season, Jones recorded 41 tackles (29 solo), including one sack.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones missed 12 games in his first three seasons for Pittsburgh, which was already without Ryan Shazier this season.

Steelers' Jarvis Jones: Not on Wednesday's injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones, who is dealing with a minor ankle sprain, did not appear on Wednesday's injury report.

It looks as if the injury was as minor as originally reported. Expect Jones to be healthy and a full-go Sunday night against Kansas City.

Steelers' Jarvis Jones: Dealing with sprained ankle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones suffered a minor ankle sprain in Sunday's loss to the Eagles, Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reports.

Steelers' Jarvis Jones: Favored to start at outside linebacker
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones is favored to split reps with Bud Dupree (undisclosed) as starting outside linebackers this season, Mark Kaboly of TribLive.com reports. "Get in the best shape you can because, me and Bud, it is our year, and they are looking for us to do big things," Jones said. "We aren't coming off the field unless we are tired."

After recording 29 tackles, two sacks, one interception, and one forced fumble last season, Jones will now look to see an expanded role as a starter this year. The Steelers have several options at OLB, including Jones, Dupree, James Harrison, and Arthur Moats. Defensive coordinator Keith Butler seems to be high on young guns Jones and Dupree, though, as the preseason gets underway.

Steelers' Jarvis Jones: Five tackles in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones collected five tackles (three solo) against the Broncos on Sunday.

Jones recorded 29 tackles (15 solo), including two sacks during the regular season. He also had an interception, and forced fumble and two fumble recoveries on the season. Jones has hardly lived up to the expectations the Steelers had for him when they selected him with the 17th pick in the 2013 draft. In three seasons, Jones has missed 12 games and totaled just five sacks.
