Seahawks' Nazair Jones: Moves to IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (knee) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

Jones had the knee injury crop up last week and was unable to play in Saturday's preseason contest versus the Chargers. The specifics of the injury remain unclear, but the 24-year-old won't be able to return this season since the move to IR occurred before roster cutdowns.

Seahawks' Nazair Jones: Dealing with knee issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones is being hampered by a knee injury, Andy Patton of Seahawks Wire reports.

The injury could force Jones to miss Saturday's preseason contest against the Chargers, but it's unclear how serious the issue is. The 24-year-old is currently listed at the bottom of Seattle's defensive end depth chart along with Branden Jackson.

Seahawks' Nazair Jones: Shifting to outside
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones will play as a defensive end in 2019, Brady Henderson of ESPN reports.

Jones spent his first two seasons with the Seahawks as a defensive tackle, and he worked in a limited role with underwhelming results. Poona Ford established himself as a dependable run-stopper down the stretch last season, so the Seahawks feel comfortable bumping Jones to the outside. There's an opening at defensive end for the time being after Frank Clark was traded to the Chiefs, but the Seahawks are expected to draft at least one edge rusher which will further cut into Jones' projected usage.

Seahawks' Nazair Jones: Takes step back in 2018
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones made seven tackles (two solo) in nine games this season.

Jones had an opportunity to rise up the depth chart into a starting role, but he averaged just 14.6 defensive snaps per game after being beaten out by trade acquisition Shamar Stephen and undrafted rookie Poona Ford. Stephen could walk in free agency, but Ford is expected to bump into the starter role in 2019, likely leaving Jones as a backup again.

Seahawks' Nazair Jones: Inactive for Week 10
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (illness) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Rams, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Jones has not suited up since Week 6 and will miss Sunday's tilt against the Rams due to an illness. As long as Jones remains sidelined, Poona Ford and Rasheem Green could see increased defensive snaps.

Seahawks' Nazair Jones: Returns to action Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (hip) made two tackles (one solo) and one pass breakup in Saturday's 24-14 preseason loss to the Chargers.

The 2017 third-round pick has the potential to be a solid pass rusher after he notched two sacks, three pass breakups and one interception in 11 games during his rookie campaign. However, Jones is on track for a reserve interior lineman role behind Jarran Reed and Tom Johnson.

Seahawks' Nazair Jones: Mystery injury was hip flexor
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Pete Carroll considers Jones "day-to-day" with a hip injury, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle reports.

Jones sat out of Thursday's preseason opener against the Colts with this injury. The second-year pro generated 19 tackles (10 solo) and two sacks in a reserve role last year. He'll battle Tom Johnson, who will be 34 years old when the season commences, for a starting spot in Week 1.

Seahawks' Nazair Jones: Sits out with unknown issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (undisclosed) sat out of Tuesday's practice, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

Jones is listed as a backup behind Jarran Reed, but he should come in handy for pass rush situations, as he had two sacks, three pass breakups and one interception in 11 games last year. The Seahawks have a strong defensive front once again, however, with Reed, Tom Johnson and Shamar Stephen (knee) -- the latter two combined for more than 1,000 snaps with the Vikings last season. Therefore, Jones will be hard-pressed to get on the field enough to be a consistent IDP threat.

Seahawks' Nazair Jones: Lands on injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (ankle) was placed on injured reserve by the Seahawks on Saturday.

Jones had already been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Cardinals, so this move simply ensures Jones' absence for the playoffs, should Seattle earn a wild-card berth. The 23-year-old finishes his rookie season with 19 total tackles, two sacks and an interception.

Seahawks' Nazair Jones: Won't play Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (ankle) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Cardinals, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Jones sustained a setback in his recovery and did not practice this week, so him being ruled out was to be expected. Garrison Smith should see increased reps as a reserve defensive tackle in Sunday's regular-season finale.

Seahawks' Nazair Jones: Suffers setback in recovery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (ankle) suffered a setback in his recovery and didn't practice Wednesday, Gregg Bell of the News Tribune reports.

Jones has already missed the last four games with an unspecified ankle injury and seems unlikely to make it back for Sunday's season finale against the Cardinals.

December 24, 2017 03:40 PM
Seahawks' Nazair Jones: Inactive Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (ankle) is listed as inactive for Sunday's game against the Cowboys.

Jones will now miss a fourth consecutive game. Branden Jackson and Marcus Smith could pick up some additional snaps in his absence.

Seahawks' Nazair Jones: Unlikely to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (ankle) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Cowboys, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.

Jones hasn't seen game action since Week 12 and did not practice this week, so even the doubtful designation seems optimistic. Garrison Smith should serve as the Seahawks' reserve defensive tackle Sunday with the rookie third-round pick unlikely to suit up.

Seahawks' Nazair Jones: Unavailable Week 15
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (ankle) is officially inactive for Sunday's game against the Rams.

Jones was listed as doubtful and didn't practice this week, so this was to be expected. Starters Jarran Reed and Sheldon Richardson are the Seahawks only available defensive tackles, and the team will need to shuffle their defensive line rotation Sunday.

Seahawks' Nazair Jones: Doubtful for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (ankle) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Rams, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Jones didn't participate at practice this week in any capacity, making it surprising he hasn't been ruled out for Sunday. It seems things are trending in that direction in any event for Jones, who has missed the Seahawks' previous two games.

Seahawks' Nazair Jones: Set to miss another game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said Friday that Jones (ankle) won't play Sunday against the Jaguars, Brady Henderson of ESPN.com reports.

Carroll suggested that Jones was about a week away from playing, so it doesn't sound as though the defensive tackle hit a serious snag in his recovery in recent days. Jones, who sat out last week's win over the Eagles with the injury, will likely be included in the team's defensive-line rotation once cleared to play again.

Seahawks' Nazair Jones: Set to sit Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (ankle) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Eagles.

The rookie defensive lineman will miss his first game of the season, and he's been summoned more often lately, as Jarran Reed has nursed a hamstring ailment. Still, his fantasy ceiling is low, as he has just 19 tackles and two sacks in 11 appearances.

Seahawks' Nazair Jones: Doubtful Sunday with ankle issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones is doubtful to play in Sunday's game against the Eagles due to an ankle issue, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

According to Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune, Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said Jones "turned his ankle" during Thursday's practice, with the injury seemingly significant enough to keep him on the sideline in Week 13. Assuming that's the case, Rodney Coe would step into a larger role as part of the Seahawks' defensive-line rotation.

Seahawks' Nazair Jones: Gearing up Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (knee) is active for Sunday's game against the Giants.

Jones was listed as questionable Friday, and now he'll return to his reserve role Sunday. He hasn't played over 25 defensive snaps yet this season, though, meaning he shouldn't be deployed by fantasy owners anytime soon.

Seahawks' Nazair Jones: Selected by Seattle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Seahawks selected Jones in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 102nd overall.

Jones isn't the standout athlete you'd normally expect the Seahawks to target, but it's easy enough to see what use they have in mind for him. At 6-foot-5, 304 pounds, Jones is built to eat space.
