Eagles' Matt Jones: Totals 78 yards Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones rushed nine times for 54 yards and caught all four of his targets for 24 more yards in Thursday's preseason win over the Jets.

He managed not to fumble in this one, at least. It was Jones' best effort of the preseason although he is still considered a longshot to make the 53-man roster leading up to the Eagles' Week 1 matchup at Atlanta. Jay Ajayi's slow progress in recovering from a lower-body injury may help the fourth-year vet's case to make the team, but even so, he is still believed to be behind Wendell Smallwood and rookie Josh Adams for a spot behind Corey Clement and Darren Sproles, and therefore has minimal fantasy value at the moment.

Eagles' Matt Jones: Tallies 42 yards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones rushed for 12 yards on three carries and added 30 yards on six catches during Thursday's 5-0 loss to the Browns. He lost a fumble during the contest.

Jones snagged a screen pass with the Eagles driving in the second quarter. He turned up field and promptly had the ball punched out for a fumble. Jones is battling for a roster spot on an Eagles team that could use some quality depth and Jones has the natural talent to play a role behind Jay Ajayi. After a career full of fumbling issues, however, Jones' play on Thursday might scare Philly's brass away.

Eagles' Matt Jones: Ready for extended look
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones and Wendell Smallwood likely will be the only two Philadelphia running backs available for Thursday's preseason game against the Browns, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

In a backfield littered with minor injuries, Jones was unable to boost his stock in last week's preseason loss to New England, taking six carries for 19 yards and catching six of nine targets for 32 yards. His most memorable play from the game was a terrible drop that turned into an interception, but he'll at least have the opportunity to bounce back Thursday in Cleveland. A spot on the 53-man roster still feels like a stretch.

Eagles' Matt Jones: Totals 51 scrimmage yards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones had six carries for 19 yards and caught six of nine targets for 32 yards in Thursday's preseason game against the Patriots.

Jones failed to gain much steam in the Eagles' running game, and despite being active through the air, he had a rough night with three drops. The 25-year-old led the team's running backs with 33 offensive snaps -- compared to Wendell Smallwood's 30. He could continue to see an uptick in opportunity during what's left of training camp, depending on how long Corey Clement (undisclosed), Josh Adams (undisclosed) and Donnel Pumphrey (leg) remain sidelined.

Eagles' Matt Jones: Returns to practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (leg) participated in Saturday's practice, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Jones has been sidelined for a little over a week with the leg injury and was forced to miss the team's preseason opener as a result. With his return to practice, Jones should be in good shape to play in Thursday's Super Bowl rematch with the Patriots.
