Don Jones: Waived by San Francisco
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (knee) was waived by the 49ers on Wednesday.

Jones spent his past season with the 49ers on injured reserve after tearing his ACL in the preseason finale. A five-year veteran, Jones will likely have to prove he's fully healed from the knee injury before he lands a spot on another team.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones was revealed to be recovering from a torn ACL, Steffany Means of WBRC FOX6 News reports. "My knee is coming along real good. I think I have another month or two but I think I will be back to fully recovered soon," the safety said.

Jones hurt his knee during the 49ers' final preseason game in 2017, but the full extent of his injury wasn't previously known. The Arkansas State product seems unlikely to be fully available until training camp starts back up in late July or early August.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones signed a two-year contract with the 49ers on Friday.

Dolphins LT Branden Albert, DB Don Jones out of OTAs
by Marty Gitlin |

As expected, Dolphins left tackle Branden Albert (knee) and defensive back Don Jones (shoulder) have been ruled out of OTA work, per the Miami Herald.

Albert is expected to be ready to roll for the season opener. The team has repeatedly claimed that he is on track, though offensive line coach John Benton is making no guarantees.

"From what I've heard it looks promising," he told the Palm Beach Post. "To say I'm confident is probably a little bit of a stretch. He promises me. I certainly hope that's the case - we're a much better crew with him. At the same time you have to make the plans that he won't (be ready)."

The shoulder injury that has sidelined Jones has been a factor since late in the regular season.
