Jones has been out all spring with what coach John Harbaugh described as a "health issue," Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports. "He had kind of an episode a few months ago. He's not cleared to practice at this time," Harbaugh said Wednesday.

With the Patriots in need of a boost in the return game, Jones will get another look from the team, but he'll likely need to perform well in his initial opportunities to guaranteed himself anything more than an abbreviated stay. Running back Kenjon Barner was released to make room for Jones on the 53-man roster.
Jones was let go by the Patriots on Saturday, Ryan Hannable of WEEI reports.
The news comes as rather striking considering Jones was drafted in the second round of the 2016 draft. New England is no stranger to striking moves, however, so it's not all that unconventional for the dynasty. Jones has a good chance to latch on elsewhere considering his youth and potential.

While Jones has officially been removed from the PUP list, the Patriots likely won't be quick to rush him back to a full workload 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.
