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.

Cowboys' Byron Jones: Battles through injuries in 2019
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (ankle) wrapped up the 2019 season with 46 tackles (37 solo), six passes defended and a forced fumble in 15 games.

The fifth-year corner could never seem to get fully healthy after undergoing hip surgery last offseason, missing most of training camp and the entire preseason and then dealing with a series of lower-body injuries during the year, with an ankle injury eventually forcing him to miss the first regular-season contest of his career in Week 17. Jones did record a strong 78.1 QB rating against on 63 passes directed his way, only a slight step back from his 2018 performance, but his IDP totals were unimpressive. An unrestricted free agent, the 27-year-old's reputation as a shutdown corner should earn him a huge payday this spring -- a contract that seems unlikely to come from the Cowboys, who splashed around plenty of money on extensions to other players this year and still have Dak Prescott and Amari Cooper to take care of.

Cowboys' Byron Jones: Won't play in finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (ankle) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Redskins, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.

Jones sustained a right ankle sprain during Thursday's practice, and he wore a protective boot Friday. It's a major loss for the Cowboys' secondary since Jones is an every-down cornerback, and the 27-year-old's season will be over if the Redskins pull off an upset. For the time being, Deante Burton is expected to see an uptick in defensive usage.

Cowboys' Byron Jones: Likely unavailable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (ankle) isn't expected to play Sunday against the Redskins, Ed Werder of ESPN reports.

Jones suffered the right ankle sprain during Thursday's practice and was wearing a protective boot Friday, so it's not a major surprise he isn't expected to play despite officially being questionable. Jourdan Lewis would see an increased role Sunday if Jones cannot suit up.

Cowboys' Byron Jones: Questionable with ankle sprain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones is dealing with a sprained ankle and is questionable for Sunday's game against the Redskins, Todd Archer of ESPN.com reports.

The 27-year-old sustained the injury during Thursday's practice, leaving his availability as a question mark. According to Jon Machota of The Athletic, Jones was wearing a protective boot on his right foot Friday, which isn't a great sign for his status this weekend.

Cowboys' Byron Jones: Fully practices Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (hip) does not have an injury designation heading into Sunday's game against the Rams

Jones turned in two limited practices this week before upping the ante to full Friday. The 27-year-old has yet to miss a game this season.

Cowboys' Byron Jones: Held back in practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

Jones shook off a hamstring injury to suit up in last Thursday's loss to the Bears, but now he's hampered by a hip issue. There's no information about the severity of Jones' injury, but a potential absence in Week 15 would be quite disruptive to the Cowboys' defense against the Rams' sixth-ranked passing game (276.8 yards per game). The 2015 first-round pick plays an every-down role, allowing 6.5 yards per target and three touchdowns in coverage this year.

Cowboys' Byron Jones: Suits up Sunday night
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (hamstring) is active for Sunday night's game against the Eagles, Calvin Watkins of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Jones has started every game this season for Dallas and keeps his streak intact. He has 20 tackles (14 solo) and three passes defensed on the year.

Cowboys' Byron Jones: Expected to play Week 7
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (hamstring) is expected to play Sunday night against the Eagles, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Jones is listed as questionable but should be able to suit up for Sunday's divisional tilt. The 27-year-old sat out the first two practices of the week but put in a limited session Friday.

Cowboys' Byron Jones: Questionable for Week 7
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday's divisional match against the Eagles, Jon Machota of The Athletic reports.

Jones missed two straight practices to start the week, but he managed to upgrade to a limited practice session Friday. While the starting cornerback is certainly making progress in his recovery from the hamstring injury that caused him to sit out Week 6, it remains to be seen whether he'll receive medical clearance in time for Sunday's divisional tilt.

Cowboys' Byron Jones: Sitting out practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (hamstring) didn't participate in Wednesday's practice, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Jones didn't return to this past Sunday's game against the Jets after suffering a hamstring injury. His absence from Wednesday's practice is troubling and puts him on track to miss Week 7's game against the Eagles if he can't get on the field in some capacity Thursday or Friday. Since Anthony Brown (hamstring) is on the mend as well, Chidobe Awuzie and Jourdan Lewis are in line to be the Cowboys' top corners.

Cowboys' Byron Jones: Leaves Sunday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones was forced out of Sunday's game against the Jets with a hamstring injury, Rob Phillips of the Cowboys' official site reports.

Jones joins Anthony Brown (hamstring) on the sidelines, as the Cowboys are down to just three healthy cornerbacks -- Chidobe Awuzie, Jourdan Lewis and C.J. Goodwin.

Cowboys' Byron Jones: Looks healthy in Week 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones recorded eight tackles and a pass defended in Sunday's win over Washington.

The cornerback got tested early and often by Washington quarterback Case Keenum, but Jones appeared fully recovered from his offseason hip surgery and was up to the task. Once word gets around that he's healthy again, don't expect him to see this many tackling opportunities going forward.

Cowboys' Byron Jones: Bigger workload ahead
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (hip) figures to see a bigger workload in Week 2 after playing only 39.7 percent (27 of 68) of the Cowboys' defensive snaps in the opener against the Giants, Jon Machota of The Athletic reports.

It's not clear whether the cornerback will return to the starting lineup Sunday against Washington, but Jones was a full participant in practice all week and seems ready to handle more action. If he doesn't rejoin the starters, Anthony Brown would line up opposite Chidobe Awuzie once again.

Cowboys' Byron Jones: Not starting Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (hip) is expected to play in Sunday's game against the Giants but won't start, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Jones will make his return to the field following his recovery from offseason hip surgery. The team could elect to ease him back into game action, but the fact that he's suiting up in some fashion is a positive sign. It's unclear how much of role Jones will have in the defense, but Anthony Brown likely will draw the start at one of the cornerback positions.

Cowboys' Byron Jones: Full participant Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (hip) practiced without limitations Wednesday, Calvin Watkins of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Jones didn't miss a game in his first four NFL seasons, and he's not starting now. The 2015 first-round pick has lived up to the hype with 67 tackles and 14 pass breakups last year, although he has just two career interceptions. Jones could have a chance to up his turnover game over the first three weeks with matchups against the Giants, Redskins and Dolphins on tap.

Cowboys' Byron Jones: Returns to practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (hip) got some practice time in with the second-team defense Tuesday, Calvin Watkins of The Dallas Morning News reports.

A day after being activated off the PUP list, Jones was back on the practice field. He still has nearly two weeks to attempt to get back to full health for the Cowboys' season opener against the Giants. He is expected to start opposite Chidobe Awuzie at cornerback this season.

August 26, 2019 08:00 PM
Cowboys' Byron Jones: Comes off PUP list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (hip) passed a physical Monday, clearing him to return to practice, Calvin Watkins of The Dallas Morning News reports.

At the same time, Jones was removed from the PUP list, but his activity level in drills isn't immediately known. Fortunately for the cornerback, he has nearly two weeks to get healthy for Week 1 against the Giants. The Cowboys' first injury report of the 2019 season will be released Sept. 4, at which point we'll have an idea of his readiness for that contest.
