Jones recorded five tackles and 2.5 sacks during Sunday's victory over the Broncos.
This was a breakout performance of sorts for Jones, who had just nine tackles and one sack to his name over the previous 12 games. The third-round rookie out of Ohio State will look to have another solid outing in the season finale Sunday against a Raiders team that will be without stud left tackle Trent Brown (pectoral).
Jones (ankle) is active for Sunday's game against the Lions.
Jones missed Week 15's loss to the Chiefs, but the rookie third-round pick is back in the fold. He has nine tackles and a sack through 12 games this year, and Jones is in line for a starting role since DeMarcus Walker (ankle) is inactive.
Jones (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's contest against the Lions, Zac Stevens of TheDNVR.com reports.
Jones has been limited all week with an ankle injury, a positive sign for his Sunday availability considering he was unable to practice in any fashion in the lead-up to Week 15. Jonathan Harris is in line to fill in for Jones at defensive end if he is unable to suit up against Detroit.
Jones (ankle) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Nicki Jhabvala of The Athletic reports.
Jones didn't practice in any capacity before being ruled out for Week 15's loss to the Chiefs, so Wednesday's limited session represents tangible progress. The rookie third-round pick appears to have a shot at retaking the field against Detroit on Sunday, though the Broncos are unlikely to rush him back to action until fully healthy.
Jones (ankle) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Chiefs.
The Broncos are tight on depth at defensive end, as DeMarcus Walker (ankle) and Adam Gotsis (knee) are inactive as well. Deyon Sizer, who was promoted from the practice squad Saturday, is a candidate to start, but Kyle Peko could bump over from his typical interior position.
Jones (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Chiefs, Nicki Jhabvala of The Athletic reports.
Jones didn't practice all week but apparently still has a chance to suit up. Despite the tag, he seems more likely ticketed for a multi-game absence. The recently-signed Kyle Peko could see immediate playing time if Jones is out.
According to Zac Stevens of TheDNVR.com, placing Jones (ankle) on injured reserve is not an option at the moment.
The Broncos, according to head coach Vic Fangio, will keep Jones off IR for the time being and hope the defensive end can return before season's end. The rookie third-round pick has missed only one game this season, compiling nine tackles, one sack, two defended passes and one interception in 12 appearances in 2019.
Jones suffered a high-ankle sprain during Sunday's win over the Texans, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Jones was spotted wearing a walking boot following the Week 14 win. High-ankle sprains generally carry a multi-week recovery timetable, so with only three contests remaining in the regular season, it's possible that the Broncos will opt to place Jones on injured reserve. The rookie third-round pick has notched nine tackles (five solo), one sack, two defended passes and one interception across 12 games this season.
Jones (ankle) was spotted sporting a boot following Sunday's win over the Texans, Kyle Newman of The Denver Post reports.
Jones was injured in the first quarter of Sunday's game, barely playing any snaps before exiting the contest. X-rays on Jones' ankle came back negative, but the fact that he's sporting a boot is a negative sign. Expect more specifics to surface on the injury ahead of next week's game against Kansas City.
Jones (ankle) was officially ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's game against the Texans.
Jones was injured on the first defensive drive of the game, so the fact that he's already been ruled out is a negative sign for the injury. Now that he's officially done for the day, look for Adam Gotsis to continue to see an uptick in defensive and special teams snaps. The team should have an official word on Jones' health leading into next week's game against Kansas City.
Jones (ankle) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Texans.
It's unclear how Jones suffered the injury, but he was forced to leave the game on the first defensive drive of the game. As long as Jones is sidelined, Adam Gotsis is in line to see an uptick in defensive and special teams snaps.
Jones tallied three tackles, three quarterback hits and a tackle for loss during Thursday's 14-10 win over the Falcons.
Jones dominated the Falcons' offensive line down the stretch, harassing Matt Schaub into a late interception. Obviously, Jones was going against down-roster players, but the rookie showed the ability to generate push up the middle that can complement the Broncos' ferocious outside rush. Continued performances such as this could earn Jones an expanded role in passing situations.
The Broncos selected Jones in the third round of the 2019 NFL Draft, 71st overall.
The first defensive selection for Denver in the 2019 NFL Draft, Jones is perhaps a bit undersized (281 pounds) for a pure nose tackle, but he was a disruptive force with Ohio State, racking up 13 tackles for a loss, 8.5 sacks and 43 tackles in his junior season. Jones should be the primary interior pass rusher, but the likes of Shelby Harris and Mike Purcell will likely still rotate plenty along the defensive line.
