by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chargers' Justin Jones: May return Week 7
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Anthony Lynn said Jones (shoulder) could be activated from IR on Saturday, Gilbert Manzano of The Orange County Register reports.

In order to play Sunday against the Jaguars, Jones would need to be activated Saturday. The third-year defensive tackle started the first two games of the year before suffering this shoulder injury, so he'd likely start again if he's able to return Sunday.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (shoulder) was designated to return from injured reserve Monday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Chargers' Justin Jones: Lands on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Chargers placed Jones (shoulder) on injured reserve Saturday.

The 2018 third-round pick logged a decent workload through the first two weeks, but he'll sit out the next three games. Jerry Tillery and Linval Joseph will handle starting duties still, but Cortez Broughton and Damion Square should enjoy increased usage moving forward.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (shoulder) has been ruled out for Sunday's game versus the Panthers.

Chargers' Justin Jones: Not practicing Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (shoulder) didn't suit up in Thursday's practice, Jeff Miller of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Jones suffered the injury during Sunday's loss to the Chiefs, and he appears to still be dealing with the issue. His practice status Friday should paint a clearer picture for his Week 3 availability, but if he can't go Sunday, look for Jerry Tillery and Damion Square to see increased snap counts.

Chargers' Justin Jones: Injures shoulder Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chargers' Justin Jones: Solid second season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones posted 30 tackles (18 solo) and a forced fumble across 12 games this season.

A shoulder injury kept Jones off the field from Week 7-10, but it was an otherwise encouraging season for the 2018 third-round pick as the nose tackle stepped into the starting role opposite Brandon Mebane and performed above expectations, particularly against the run.

Chargers' Justin Jones: Logs full practice Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (shoulder) was a full participant in practice Thursday.

Jones getting in a full practice in his first chance of the week is a strong sign he'll be able to return Monday night after a four-week absence. If he's able to continue without setbacks, his presence on the defensive line would be a boon against the Chiefs.

Chargers' Justin Jones: Can't play TNF
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (shoulder) is ruled out for Thursday's matchup against the Raiders.

Jones was a limited participant in practice all week, but he'll remain on the sidelines for a fourth straight game. Brandon Mebane (knee) is considered questionable, so both Jerry Tillery and Damion Square could assume starting roles in Jones' place. With extended rest following a Thursday night contest, Jones has a good shot to return Week 11 against the Chiefs. The second-year pro has suited up in six games this year, posting 20 tackles and a pass breakup.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chargers' Justin Jones: Facing competition for starting job
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones is expected to remain in consideration for a starting tackle position despite the first-round selection of Jerry Tillery, Gilbert Manzano of the Orange County Register reports.

The fact general manager Tom Telesco went out of his way to praise Jones, a 2018 third-round pick, should be comforting for the 22-year-old. That being said, Jones likely will be part of a rotation along the defensive line, with Brandon Mebane, Isaac Rochell and Tillery all expected to garner snaps.

Chargers' Justin Jones: Practices Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (ankle) took part in practice Tuesday, Eric D. Williams of reports.

Jones hasn't played since injuring his ankle back in the beginning of August , but the third-round pick is evidently healthy enough to hit the practice field Tuesday. Given the draft capital invested in jones, he's a virtual lock for the the 53-man roster. However, it's unlikely he sees much playing time this year, unless a plethora of injuries occur to others above him on the depth chart.

Chargers' Justin Jones: Spotted wearing boot at practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones was spotted at Thursday's practice sporting a protective boot on his left ankle, Jack Wang of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

The presence of a boot is always cause for concern. As of right now, the Chargers haven't provided much information regarding the root of the ankle injury, but more details should emerge in the coming days. Until the boot is gone, we can reasonably assume Jones won't be playing in the team's upcoming preseason game.
