Cowboys' Byron Jones: Looks good in rehab
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones is progressing well in his rehab after hip surgery, Calvin Watkins of The Athletic reports.

Jones isn't expected to do much, if anything, during OTAs, but any optimism is a good sign. In his fourth year, Jones was outstanding with 67 tackles and 14 pass breakups through 16 games. Jones is still targeting a return for training camp.

Cowboys' Byron Jones: May open training camp on PUP list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (hip) could start training camp on the Physically Unable to Perform list, Clarence E. Hill, Jr. of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

There's optimism Jones may not need to miss much, if any, time during training camp, but it seems the defensive back is targeting a return closer to the regular-season opener. There doesn't seem to be much concern Jones will remain on the PUP list when Week 1 rolls around, though.

Cowboys' Byron Jones: Gets surgery on hip
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones had hip surgery Wednesday but still hopes to be ready for the start of training camp, ESPN.com's Todd Archer reports.

Jones played through a hip injury late in the 2018 season and was hoping it would resolve itself with rest. He presumably won't be available for the Cowboys' offseason program, but the rehab process isn't expected to impact his Week 1 availability. The 26-year-old cornerback could receive an extension this offseason, as he's scheduled to play out 2019 under the fifth-year option on his rookie contract. The Cowboys reportedly have talked with Jones' agent, but they're currently focused on working out deals for DE DeMarcus Lawrence, QB Dak Prescott and WR Amari Cooper.

Cowboys' Byron Jones: Breakout in 2018
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones finished the regular season with 67 tackles and a career-high 14 passes defended.

Secondary coach Kris Richard has a track record of developing long, physical corners, and Jones became his latest success story after spending the first three seasons of his career bouncing between cornerback and safety. The 26-year-old graded out as one of the best CBs in the league according to Pro Football Focus, and he was the very definition of a shutdown corner by not allowing a single touchdown reception in coverage all year. While he doesn't put up great IDP numbers, Jones should combine with Chidobe Awuzie to give Dallas an impressive pair of athletic and impressive young secondary pieces heading into 2019.

Cowboys' Byron Jones: Double-digit tackles Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones recorded 10 tackles (eight solo) and two passes defensed across 80 defensive snaps in Sunday's loss to the Texans.

Jones played every snap of Sunday's overtime loss to the Texans and was third on the team in tackles. He'll now face Blake Bortles, who committed five turnovers in Sunday's loss to the Chiefs.
