The Browns waived Jones (undisclosed) with an injury settlement Thursday, freelance NFL writer Howard Balzer reports.
It is unknown what exactly Jones' injury is, but he has had a history of injuries -- dating most recently to his appearance on injured reserve in the 2018 season. It's also unclear what's next for Jones' NFL career, but more should become clear as the offseason rolls on and he has time to recover.
Jones (undisclosed) cleared waivers and reverted to injured reserve, according to the league's official transaction log.
It isn't clear when or how Jones got injured, but the defensive end is nonetheless planted on IR through the end of the league year unless he agrees to an injury settlement.
Jones logged 24 defensive snaps during Friday's preseason game against the Browns.
Jones has presumably cleared concussion protocol and is right back in the competition for depth slotting along the defensive line.
