Jones was limited to nine appearances (four starts) during the 2018 season, injuring his right hamstring on three separate occasions. He seems to have regained his health in time for a normal offseason routine, with the hope of adding some muscle to his 6-foot, 180-pound frame. The 2017 second-round pick will need to battle for a meaningful role in the Philadelphia defense, as fellow cornerbacks Jalen Mills (foot), Rasul Douglas, Avonte Maddox and Cre'Von LeBlanc are all under contract for at least one more season. Jones does have the benefit of youth (he'll turn 23 in May) and draft pedigree (2017 second-rounder pick).
Jones (hamstring) is officially inactive for Sunday's game at New Orleans.
Jones was able to return to practice this week and was a full participant Friday, but he will still miss his fifth straight game. The 22-year-old appears to be nearing a return, but will need to hope the Eagles advance to the NFC Championship Game if he wants a chance to see the field again this season. Avonte Maddox should once again see a heavy workload in his absence.
Jones (hamstring) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's divisional-round playoff game against the Saints.
Jones was a full participant in Friday's practice after having been limited Wednesday and Thursday. The second-year starter has missed five consecutive games due to a lingering hamstring injury, but appears to be nearing a return to the field. If Jones is cleared to play in New Orleans, Avonte Maddox will likely return to a backup role.
Jones (hamstring) was an estimated absentee during Wednesday's walkthrough, Martin Frank of The Delaware News Journal reports.
Although the Eagles didn't conduct a formal practice, Jones was unlikely to have practiced in full pads anyway. Jones will have an opportunity to prove he's capable of playing in Sunday's playoff game should he work his way back onto the practice field without any limitations. In the meantime, we'll have to wait until further notice before we can get a better idea of where he stands.
Coach Doug Pederson said Tuesday that Jones (hamstring) is viewed as day to day but is "a little bit further away" from playing in Week 17 against the Redskins than the Eagles' other injured players, Andy Schwartz of The Allentown Morning Call reports.
Jones has already missed six total games with hamstring issues, including the Eagles' last two contests. Pederson's comments don't paint an optimistic picture for the second-year player's chances of making it back for the regular-season finale, so it's unlikely he'll be ready to go until the wild-card round of the playoffs, should Philadelphia qualify. Rasul Douglas and Avonte Maddox should take most of the reps at cornerback in Week 17.
