Chiefs' Chris Jones: Clogs middle again in 2020
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones collected 36 tackles (23 solo) and 7.5 sacks over 15 games during the 2020 regular season.

While Jones didn't quite reach his totals from either of the last two seasons, the big man still made his presence felt in the middle of the Chiefs' defensive line. He remains under contract for the next three seasons and there doesn't seem to be signs of him slowing down at this point.

Chiefs' Chris Jones: Adds another sack
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones had four tackles (all solo), one sack and one pass defensed during Sunday's 33-27 win over the Dolphins.

The 26-year-old played 71 percent of the defensive snaps and recorded his first sack since Week 9. Jones has 35 tackles (22 solo), 6.5 sacks and two forced fumbles through 12 games in 2020.

Chiefs' Chris Jones: Activated from COVID list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Chiefs activated Jones from the reserve/COVID-19 list Friday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

Jones was placed on the COVID-19 list Thursday, but he's tested negative and cleared the necessary protocols in order to return to team facilities. The 26-year-old practiced Friday, and now he'll officially be ready for Sunday's game versus the Panthers. The 26-year-old defensive tackle has 4.5 sacks and 22 quarterback pressures through seven games, and he has a solid opportunity to add to his totals this week, as Teddy Bridgewater has been sacked on 5.9 percent of dropbacks this year.

Chiefs' Chris Jones: In clear for Week 9
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chiefs head coach Andy Reid said that he expects Jones (reserve/COVID-19 list) to play in Sunday's game against the Panthers, Herbie Teope of The Kansas City Star reports.

Jones was placed on the list Thursday after he was determined to have been in close contact with someone who tested positive for the coronavirus, but the defensive lineman apparently cleared all COVID-19-related protocols in quick fashion. The 26-year-old was back at practice Friday, an indication that the Chiefs fully intend on having him in the lineup this weekend. Expect the team to formally activate him from the list Friday or Saturday.

Chiefs' Chris Jones: Back at facility Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones is present at the Chiefs' training facility Friday, Herbie Teope of The Kansas City Star reports.

Jones was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday after he was determined to have been in close contact with an infected individual. The Chiefs haven't confirmed that Jones has been activated from the list, but his presence at the team facility suggests that the star defensive lineman will have a shot at being available for Sunday's game versus the Panthers after all.

Chiefs' Chris Jones: Cleared of positive COVID-19 test
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones' placement on the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday was the result of a close contact through tracing rather than a positive test by the defensive lineman, Nate Taylor of The Athletic reports.

Kansas City shut down its team facility and held a remote practice Thursday after a staff member tested positive earlier in the day. It's unclear if that staff member or another infected person was in close contact with Jones, but regardless, he won't be eligible to rejoin the team for at least five days in accordance with the NFL's rules for players placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list. Jones won't be able to play in Sunday's game against the Panthers.

Chiefs' Chris Jones: Placed on COVID-19 list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Chiefs have placed Jones on the reserve/COVID-19 list, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Jones' placement on the list means that he either tested positive for COVID-19 or has been in close contact with an infected person or persons.

Chiefs' Chris Jones: Resumes practicing in full
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (groin) was a full participant in Thursday's practice.

Jones was limited due to a groin injury Wednesday, but he's already managed to resume handling unrestricted practice reps. The star defensive tackle has 4.5 sacks on the season, a total which he'll look to boost against the Jets' hapless O-line on Sunday.

Chiefs' Chris Jones: Groin issue resurfaces
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones was a limited practice participant Wednesday with a groin injury, Adam Teicher of ESPN.com reports.

The 26-year-old sat out Week 4 with the groin issue but played in each of the past three contests, though he apparently aggravated the injury Sunday against the Broncos as he played a season-low 52 percent of defensive snaps. The fact Jones is still practicing in some capacity is a good sign, but he may need to progress to full participation by the end of the week to avoid an injury designation this weekend.

Chiefs' Chris Jones: Records sack in victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones finished with three tackles (two solo and a tackle for loss) and a sack in Sunday's win over the Broncos.

Jones has registered a sack in three of the five contests he's played in 2020, sitting with 4.5 sacks on the year. He'll score a favorable matchup again in Week 8 against the winless Jets.

Chiefs' Chris Jones: Ready to rock
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (groin) was a full participant during Thursday's practice.

Jones was limited at practice Wednesday with the groin injury, but as evidenced by this news, the injury doesn't appear serious. Now healthy, expect the Mississippi State product to assume his usual starting role at defensive tackle for Week 5.

Chiefs' Chris Jones: Logs limited practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (groin) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice.

Jones sat out Week 4 despite logging limited sessions all week, so we shouldn't read into his Wednesday practice capacity too much. The star defensive tackle avoided a setback, however, and he has two more practices to get up to full speed. If he can't play Sunday versus the Raiders, expect Tershawn Wharton and Mike Pennel to split time in his place.

Chiefs' Chris Jones: Won't play Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (groin) is officially inactive for Monday's game against the Patriots, Adam Teicher of ESPN.com reports.

The 26-year-old received the questionable tag after practicing as a limited participant all week, but he won't be suiting up for Week 4. Kansas City will hold him out in a precautionary move, according to Nate Taylor of The Athletic, as Monday's contest is the first of three games for Kansas City in the next 11 days. Tershawn Wharton and Mike Pennel should see increased reps for the Chiefs in his absence.

Chiefs' Chris Jones: Questionable to face Pats
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (groin) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Patriots, Adam Teicher of ESPN.com reports.

Jones put together a trio of limited practice sessions while dealing with a groin issue, an injury he picked up during Monday's win over the Ravens. In the event that Jones is held to a snap count Sunday, or even forced to miss time, Tershawn Wharton and Mike Pennel would stand to handle increased defensive snaps.

Chiefs' Chris Jones: Officially limited Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (groin) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice.

Jones entered Week 3 against the Ravens with this groin injury but still managed to play 70 percent of defensive snaps, recording five tackles, two sacks and two forced fumbles. The fact that he practiced in some capacity Wednesday bodes well for his availability against the Patriots on Sunday.

Chiefs' Chris Jones: Not practicing Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (groin) isn't expected to practice Wednesday, Adam Teicher of ESPN NFL Nation reports.

Jones played through the groin injury Monday against the Ravens and produced two strip-sacks on Lamar Jackson, but the injury remains a hindrance for the standout defensive lineman. He'll look to up his practice participation as the week goes on to put Jones in position to suit up against the Patriots come Sunday.

Chiefs' Chris Jones: Two sacks Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (groin) recorded five tackles (three solo), two sacks and two forced fumbles across 39 defensive snaps in Monday's win over the Ravens.

Jones made it difficult for reigning-MVP Lamar Jackson to do virtually anything all night, strip-sacking the quarterback twice in the contest. His five tackles were also a single-game high on the young season. However, Jones was bothered by a groin injury toward the end of the contest, so look for updates on his status to come once the practice report is released later this week.

Chiefs' Chris Jones: Dealing with groin injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones suffered a groin injury near the end of Monday's 34-20 win over the Ravens, Herbie Teope of The Kansas City Star reports.

The severity of the injury is unclear at this time. Jones will likely be evaluated further in the coming days to determine his availability for Sunday's matchup with New England. Prior to exiting, the defensive tackle was a force on the interior, racking up five tackles and two sacks while forcing two fumbles.

Chiefs' Chris Jones: Starts season strong
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones recorded four tackles (three solo) and 1.5 sacks during Thursday's 34-20 win over the Texans.

Jones, who racked up a team-leading nine sacks across 13 contests in 2019, didn't waste any time picking up where he left off. The star defensive tackle will suit up against the Chargers in Week 2 as one of the top IDP options at his position.

August 23, 2020 02:24 PM
Chiefs' Chris Jones: Back at practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (groin) returned to practice Friday, Matt McMullen of the Chiefs' official site reports.

Jones missed nearly a week of practice with this groin injury but is back in the fold with three weeks to prepare for the season opener versus Houston. The 26-year-old defensive tackle battled a groin injury in 2019 but still recorded over 40 snaps per game, 36 total tackles and nine sacks.
