Colin Jones: Let go by Panthers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Panthers granted Jones' request to be released Monday, Joe Person of The Athletic reports.

With the Panthers likely heading in the direction of a rebuild, the 32-year-old veteran elected to pursue opportunities elsewhere. Jones was a special-teams captain for the Panthers this past season, logging nine tackles (seven solo) across 418 special-teams snaps. Expect Jones to operate in his usual capacity for whichever team signs him heading into 2020.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (calf) was participating at Monday's practice, Joe Person of The Athletic reports.

Jones suffered the calf injury at practice last week and was unable to play in Thursday's preseason game against the Patriots. The 31-year-old should resume his heavy special-teams role now that he's healthy.

Jones isn't practicing Monday due to an ankle/lower leg injury, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports.

Panthers' Colin Jones: Re-signs with Panthers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones signed a two-year, $2.6 million contract with the Panthers on Monday, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Charlotte Observer reports.

Jones served as the Panthers' special teams captain last season and led the unit with six special teams tackles. The 31-year-old is likely to remain a depth option at safety in 2019 and do most of his damage on special teams once more.

Panthers' Colin Jones: Dealing with illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones is questionable for Sunday's game against the Browns due to an illness.

Jones was a non-participant at practice throughout the week, but the undisclosed illness apparently isn't serious enough to rule him out just yet. The 31-year-old has played only 12 defensive snaps since Eric Reid debuted with the Panthers in Week 5, so the defense is unlikely to be impacted should he be unable to suit up.

Panthers' Colin Jones: Will serve secondary role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones will serve a secondary role at free safety following the acquisition of Eric Reid, Brendan Marks of the Charlotte Observer reports.

Reid was named the starter ahead of Sunday's game against the Giants, but coach Ron Rivera said Jones and Rashaan Gaulden should remain involved on defense. The 31-year-old is likely to remain in a reserve role as long as Reid and Mike Adams remain healthy.

Panthers' Colin Jones: Extends stay in Carolina
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones signed a two-year deal with the Panthers on Tuesday, Max Henson of the Panthers' official site reports.

The safety has become a valuable special teams player for the Panthers since arriving and provides depth in the defensive backfield. Jones has 102 tackles, one interception and one sack in 89 games played since becoming a Panther.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Panthers' Colin Jones: Questionable for Week 12
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (concussion) is considered questionable for Sunday's game against the Raiders, David Newton of reports.

Jones has been able to fully participate in practice throughout the week, so he'll just need to pass final tests before being cleared to play Sunday. If Tre Boston (ankle) is ruled out, Jones could get the start at free safety.

Panthers' Colin Jones: Practices in full Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (concussion) practiced in full Wednesday, Bryan Strickland of the Panthers' official site reports.

Jones' prospects for Sunday's game against the Raiders are looking up. If he is indeed able to play, look for him to contribute on special teams and serve as backup free safety behind starter Tre Boston.

Panthers' Colin Jones: Ruled out of Week 11
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (concussion) has been ruled out of Thursday's game against the Saints, The Charlotte Observer reports.

Jones is a special teams regular for the Panthers. However, his absence will likely have a minimal impact on the outcome of the game as he doesn't contribute much on defense.

by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
