The Patriots waived Jones late last week after he appeared in two games. It's likely Jones -- who's in his third year out of Alabama -- will play a depth role behind Brandon Carr and Tavon Young in Baltimore's secondary. The Ravens waived wide receiver Tim White in a corresponding move.
The Patriots released Jones on Saturday.
Jones suited up two games for the Patriots this season, making just one tackle in a minimal role. He will likely look for a practice squad role.
Jones (knee) was taken off the PUP list on Tuesday and returned to practice, Ben Volin of The Boston Globe reports.
While Jones has officially been removed from the PUP list, the Patriots likely won't be quick to rush him back to a full work load given that he is coming off an ACL tear. But a return to practice in any capacity is a great sign for Jones, after he spent the entire 2017 season on injured reserve.
Jones (knee) was placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.
Jones tore his ACL at the tail end of the 2017 preseason and spent the entire season on injured reserve as a result. Although he was limited in OTAs, the Patriots are opting to make sure the cornerback is at full strength before letting him loose for training camp.
Jones tore his ACL and meniscus during the 2017 preseason and missed the entire year as a result. He's currently working with the team's rehab group while working his way back into some non-contact drills. He isn't wearing a brace, which is a sign he's nearing a full return. It's expected that he won't be limited once training camp begins and he works towards a depth role on the defense.
