Jones II (hamstring) practiced in a limited capacity Wednesday, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.
For the first time since Oct. 28, Jones II handled some practice reps as he works his way back from a hamstring injury that forced absences Weeks 9 and 10. Prior to returning to practice, he told Jenna Laine of ESPN.com that his hamstring is "feeling really good." While he's taken a step in the right direction, Jones II likely has to emerge from the week setback-free before getting the all-clear to play Sunday versus the Giants.
Jones II (hamstring) will attempt to practice Wednesday, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.
Jones II hasn't taken the practice field since suffering a hamstring strain Oct. 28, missing two games in the meantime. Per Laine, Jones II said the hamstring is "feeling really good," a sign that he's closing in on a return. Wednesday's practice report will reveal whether the 2018 second-round pick was able to suit up and participate.
Jones II (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's contest against the Redskins, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.
Jones has yet to practice since straining his hamstring Oct. 28, forcing back-to-back absences so far. During the rookie running back's first DNP this past Sunday at Carolina, Peyton Barber led the Buccaneers backfield, per usual, but Jacquizz Rodgers was just behind him in terms of offensive snap count (35 versus 26).
Jones (hamstring) wasn't on the field for Thursday's practice, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Jones still has yet to practice since suffering a strained hamstring Oct. 28 against the Bengals and looks in danger of missing his second straight contest Sunday versus Washington. If the rookie is sidelined as anticipated, Peyton Barber would have a clear path to handling the bulk of the carries out of the backfield, with reserves Jacquizz Rodgers and Shaun WIlson more likely to make an impact on passing downs and special teams, respectively.
Jones (hamstring) didn't practice Wednesday, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.
Jones was unable to practice in any capacity last week and isn't on the right track to avoid a multi-game absence. Peyton Barber (ankle) was unable to take advantage of the rookie's inactive status in Sunday's 42-28 loss to the Panthers, as the Bucs were forced to play from behind all afternoon and abandon the run game early. A Week 10 home game against the injury-riddled Redskins sets up much better for Barber to stay involved, assuming his own injury isn't a major concern.
