Dolphins' Byron Jones: Looks ready for Week 5
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (groin/Achilles) was a full participant in Thursday's practice, Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

Jones appears on track for Sunday's contest in San Francisco after having missed back-to-back games. Barring any setbacks during Friday's practice, Jones stands to resume handling his usual starting workload across from Xavien Howard.

Dolphins' Byron Jones: Starts week with limited practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (groin/Achilles) was limited in Wednesday's practice, Josh Tolentino of The Athletic reports.

Coach Brian Flores said Monday that Jones is expected to play Sunday in San Francisco barring a setback, and the cornerback's limited practice to start the week does nothing to dispel that notion. Jones will ideally be able to upgrade to a full practice as the week goes along, but it wouldn't be surprising to see him log limited sessions the rest of the way as he prepares to rejoin his teammates on the field for the first time since Week 2.

Dolphins' Byron Jones: On track for Week 5
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Brian Flores said Monday that Jones (groin/Achilles) should play Week 5 against the 49ers barring a setback, Joe Schad of The Palm Beach Post reports.

The Dolphins' secondary held up longer than expected in Sunday's 31-23 loss to the Seahawks, but Jones will be a major boost over rookie Noah Igbinoghene. Jones likely will be limited to begin the practice week but is expected to be ready Sunday. He's played just two games this season, but he's been the team's lockdown corner, allowing a 75.7 passer rating when targeted.

Dolphins' Byron Jones: Won't suit up Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (groin) is officially inactive for Sunday's matchup with Seattle.

Jones came into the game drawing a doubtful tag, so this news isn't quite surprising. Week 4 will mark his second straight absence, and Auburn rookie Noah Igbinoghene will continue to start across from Xavien Howard.

Dolphins' Byron Jones: Officially doubtful for Week 4
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (groin/Achilles) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against Seattle, Safid Deen of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

Jones is expected to miss Sunday's contest, per Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald, which would be his second straight absence. Until Jones is able to get healthy, rookie first-round pick Noah Igbinoghene will continue to start across from Xavien Howard.

Dolphins' Byron Jones: Upgrades to limited practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (groin/Achilles) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

Jones wasn't able to suit up against the Jaguars last Thursday due to a combination of groin and Achilles' injuries, so it's now encouraging to see him back at practice in at least a limited capacity. The extent of Jones' participation during Friday's practice could go a long way in determining his availability for Sunday's game against the Seahawks.

Dolphins' Byron Jones: Still not practicing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (groin/Achilles) didn't practice Wednesday, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

Jones isn't practicing for a second consecutive week, so he'll need to heal from his combination of injuries quickly to suit up against the high-flying Seahawks passing attack Sunday. Consider the cornerback on the wrong side of questionable.

Dolphins' Byron Jones: Absent from early part of practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (groin/Achilles) is not present at the early portion of Monday's practice open to the media, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

Jones missed last Thursday's win over the Jaguars due to a combination of groin and Achilles injuries, and it looks as though he still isn't ready to resume practicing. Rookie first-round pick Noah Igbinoghene would stand to draw another start if Jones can't progress in time to suit up versus Seattle on Sunday.

Dolphins' Byron Jones: Won't play Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (groin/Achilles) didn't practice Wednesday and has been ruled out of Thursday's game against the Jaguars, Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

Jones left last week's loss to the Bills with a groin injury, and it looks like that injury will keep him out on a short week in Week 3. The cornerback also had an Achilles injury listed on this latest injury report. He'll have 10 days to heal up for the Week 4 matchup with Seattle.

Dolphins' Byron Jones: Listed as DNP on practice estimate
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (groin) was listed as a non-participant on Monday's practice estimate, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

Jones suffered a groin injury during this past Sunday's loss to the Bills, and coach Brian Flores has been pessimistic about the high-salaried CB suiting up in Thursday's matchup against the Jaguars. The Dolphins are expected to actually take the practice field Tuesday, but if Jones is unable to participate, rookie first-rounder Noah Igbinoghene will likely command the first-team reps.

Dolphins' Byron Jones: Likely to sit out Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Brian Flores relayed that Jones (groin) would "have to heal pretty quickly" to play in Thursday's game versus the Jaguars, Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

Jones left early in Sunday's loss to the Bills and never returned, and it'll be tough for him to recover from a soft-tissue injury on a short week. Rookie first-rounder Noah Igbinoghene recorded a 93 percent snap share in Jones' place Sunday, and he could get the start Thursday if Jones indeed sits out.

Dolphins' Byron Jones: Ruled out for remainder of Week 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (groin) will be unable to return to Sunday's game against the Bills, per Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com.

The Dolphins will be without the team's big-ticket cornerback signing from the offseason after Jones exited early in Sunday's contest. Against the Stefon Diggs-led Bills receiving corps, Xavien Howard, Noah Igbinoghene and Nik Needham will have to pick up the slack for the remainder of Sunday's intradivisional tilt.

Dolphins' Byron Jones: Heads to locker room
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (groin) exited Sunday's game against the Bills and is questionable to return, Hal Habib of The Palm Beach Post reports.

Jones had battled the Achilles injury the past two weeks, but now appears to be dealing with a new issue. As long as Jones is sidelined, rookie Noah Igbinoghene would be in line to see a major uptick in snaps at cornerback.

Dolphins' Byron Jones: Good to face Bills
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (Achilles) does not have an injury designation for Sunday's contest against Buffalo, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

Jones was a full participant in Friday's practice after having been limited to begin the week. The star cornerback followed a similar path before being cleared to play Week 1, so it's possible that the Dolphins simply intend to limit his practice reps going forward.

Dolphins' Byron Jones: Limited in Wednesday's session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (Achilles) was limited in practice Wednesday, Hal Habib of The Palm Beach Post reports.

Considering Jones was able to play through the injury in Week 1 against the Patriots, he's still more likely than not to suit up against the Bills on Sunday given what we know at this point.

Dolphins' Byron Jones: Ready to rock
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (Achilles) does not carry an injury designation for Sunday's divisional tilt against the Patriots, Josh Tolentino of The Athletic reports.

Jones managed to practice without restrictions Friday after having kicked off the week with two limited sessions. With Xavien Howard (knee) also having shed his injury tag, the Dolphins' dynamic new cornerback duo is on track to make its debut against Cam Newton and the Patriots on Sunday.

Dolphins' Byron Jones: Limited in Wednesday's practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (Achilles) was limited in Wednesday's practice session, Hal Habib of the Palm Beach Post reports.

Jones and fellow cornerback Xavien Howard (knee) were both limited, and missing either against the Patriots in Week 1 would be a major blow to the Dolphins' secondary. Thursday's injury report should help shed more light on Jones' status.

Dolphins' Byron Jones: Foundational role on tap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Dolphins are relying on Jones (ankle) to anchor the defense alongside Xavien Howard in 2020, Omar Kelly of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

The five-year, $82.5 million deal Jones inked with Miami in March made him the league's highest-paid cornerback at the time, and the team's success on defense relies on him playing up to his hefty salary. Having proven himself to be one of the best press corners in the league over past five seasons in Dallas, Jones stands to be matched up against the most physical opposing receivers and tight ends that the Dolphins face in 2020. If he and Howard are indeed able to live up to their potential as arguably the league's most imposing cornerback duo, it wouldn't only improve the secondary, but it would also free up coach Brian Flores to employ for aggressive blitzes.

Cowboys' Byron Jones: Lands in Miami
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Dolphins signed Jones (ankle) to a contract Monday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

One of the key puzzle pieces of free agency has found a new home, moving on from the Cowboys after five campaigns. During that run, the 27-year-old cornerback averaged 4.4 tackles per game while compiling three forced fumbles, two interceptions and one defensive touchdown. Perhaps Jones' biggest attribute is a lack of injury history, as he's missed just one of 80 career regular-season outings.

Cowboys' Byron Jones: Will hit free agency
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cowboys are expected to let Jones (ankle) test free agency, Jeremy Bergman of NFL.com reports.

This news is relatively unsurprising, as the Cowboys have a lot of financial responsibilities to take care of during the offseason. As a result, Jones will be able to test the market out. The 2015 first-round pick is regarded as a shutdown corner and is expected to earn a big contract. He missed most of last year's training camp and preseason due to hip injury but ultimately played in 15 games before missing the season finale with an ankle injury.
