Jones (hamstring) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice.
Jones sustained an unspecified hamstring injury in Week 17 and wasn't available for last weekend's playoff victory over Atlanta. However, his full-participant status in practice suggests he'll receive clearance to return for this weekends NFC championship game against Minnesota.
Jones (Achilles), who is active for Sunday's game against the Cowboys, is expected to play about 25 snaps in his NFL debut, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
A rookie second-round pick out of Washington, Jones had been on the Non-Football Injury list all season before the Eagles officially activated him Saturday. With starting cornerback Jalen Mills (ankle) inactive for a mostly meaningless regular-season finale for the Eagles, Jones and the team's other depth options in the secondary should be called upon to pick up the slack. If Jones fares well in his first NFL action, he could stake a claim to a decent-sized role on defense during the Eagles' postseason run.
Jones returned to practice earlier this month and joins the team in time for their Week 17 game against the Cowboys, as well as a potential playoff run. The rookie second-round pick hasn't seen game action in almost a calendar year, so his NFL debut Sunday isn't likely to see him in an expanded defensive role.
The Eagles have kept Jones on the reserve/Non-Football Injury list all season while the rookie second-round pick has worked his way back from a torn left Achilles' tendon suffered during Washington's Pro Day workout. Jones appears to be on the mend after returning to practice Dec. 13, but with his window for evaluation set to come to a close this week, the Eagles will have to decide in the coming days whether he's progressed enough to the point that he can contribute in Week 17 and the postseason. If Jones isn't deemed ready to play against Dallas, he would revert to injured reserve.
The team has three weeks to place Jones on the 53-man roster or lose him to IR for the season. Since his next practice will be the first of his pro career, it is unlikely that the rookie will make it back in time to help for fantasy purposes in 2017. The former Washington standout could be an interesting IDP flyer come draft season 2018, however.
