49ers' D.J. Jones: Re-ups with 49ers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

San Francisco re-signed Jones on a one-year contract Wednesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Jones was a reliable starter for San Francisco in 2020, and he's expected to reprise a similar role for the coming season. However, Jones' skill set doesn't translate to a role that's very valuable for IDP purposes. He had just 20 tackles (14 solo) and three sacks in 14 appearances last season.

49ers' D.J. Jones: Cleared for Week 15
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (ankle) will play in Sunday's game versus the Cowboys.

Jones will return to the lineup after missing last week's game against the Football Team. He's expected to start at defensive tackle. Jones doesn't carry much IDP upside, as he's posted just 14 tackles, two sacks and a pass breakup through 11 games.

49ers' D.J. Jones: Will sit Week 14
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (ankle) is inactive for Sunday's matchup against Washington.

Jones was labeled as doubtful entering the weekend, allowing San Francisco to preemptively ready alternative options at the defensive tackle spot. Javon Kinlaw is in line to collect his 11th start of the season on one side, while Kentavius Street or Alex Barrett will likely slot in beside the rookie.

49ers' D.J. Jones: Trending toward another absence
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (ankle) is doubtful for Sunday's game versus the Football Team, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM NFL Radio reports.

Jones didn't practice all week and is expected to sit out for the second time in three games. Kevin Givens (personal) has been ruled out as well, leaving Javon Kinlaw and Kentavius Street to foot the bill at defensive tackle this week. Jones will look to return next week versus the Cowboys.

49ers' D.J. Jones: Ruled out
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (ankle) will not return to Monday's matchup with the Bills, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports.

Jones was originally called questionable to return, but it appears the injury is serious enough to keep him sidelined for the night. In his absence, look for Kevin Givens to replace him on the defensive line. It was reported after the contest by Barrows that Jones may be dealing with a high-ankle sprain, an injury that has plagued San Francisco so far this season.

49ers' D.J. Jones: Sustains ankle injury Monday night
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (ankle) is questionable to return to Monday night's matchup against the Bills, Bob Lange of the 49ers' official site reports.

The starting defensive tackle exited in the first half Monday, meaning Kevin Givens or Kentavius Street will be thrust into a prime role until he proves capable of returning. San Francisco's defensive interior is already dealing with Solomon Thomas being unavailable since Sept. 21 because of a knee injury.

49ers' D.J. Jones: Ready to rock
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list by the 49ers on Wednesday.

Jones was placed on the list Nov. 22, as he was forced to miss last week's game against the Rams. Now cleared to return to the team, expect Jones to resume practice and assume his usual starting role as one of the team's defensive tackles for Monday's game against the Bills.

49ers' D.J. Jones: Placed on COVID-19 list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Sunday, Jennifer Lee Chan of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

San Francisco now has nine players on the COVID-19 list, as fellow defensive lineman Jordan Willis was placed on it alongside Jones on Sunday. Expect to get more clarity on both players' status for the team's Week 12 matchup against the Rams once the 49ers begin practicing during the week.

49ers' D.J. Jones: Back to full speed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (eye) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, Chris Biderman of The Sacramento Bee reports.

Jones suffered an eye injury during this past Sunday's loss to the Dolphins. It's possible he didn't return because the game was already out of hand, but he's apparently back to full health nonetheless. The 2017 sixth-round pick is expected to start at defensive tackle Sunday versus the Rams, and he'll look to build on the two sacks he's registered through five games.

49ers' D.J. Jones: Injures eye Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones was forced out of Sunday's game versus the Dolphins with an eye injury, Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

The severity of Jones' injury is unclear. It's always concerning when a rare injury like this pops up, but there should be an update following the game if he can't return. Kentavius Street likely will take over if Jones can't return.

49ers' D.J. Jones: Clears concussion protocol
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones cleared the concussion protocol and returned to practice Tuesday, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Jones suffered a head injury last Thursday and has already managed to fully clear the league's concussion protocol. He'll resume handling starting reps at defensive tackle during practice.

49ers' D.J. Jones: Injury shifts from shoulder to head
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones' shoulder injury is not considered serious, but he also was diagnosed with a concussion from Thursday's practice, Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Jones underwent testing on his shoulder in the past two days, and there was no structural damage reported. Head coach Kyle Shanahan even went as far as to say the projected starting defensive tackle would have been back at practice Friday had he not been placed in the league's concussion protocol. Head injuries can lead to lengthy layoffs as well, but at least Jones' shoulder doesn't appear to be an issue moving forward. Shanahan believes the 25-year-old will be back in plenty of time before the regular season kicks off.

49ers' D.J. Jones: Suffers shoulder injury in practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones suffered a shoulder injury in practice Thursday, Cam Inman of The Mercury News reports.

Jones left practice after 30 minutes but head coach Kyle Shanahan had no immediate update afterward. If the starting nose tackle is forced to miss time, Javon Kinlaw could see his profile on the 49ers' interior defensive line expand.

49ers' D.J. Jones: Back to full health
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones said Thursday that his ankle is "100 percent" healthy, Keiana Martin of the 49ers' official site reports.

Jones suffered a season-ending ankle injury early December, but he's already resumed running and cutting without issue and looks fully recovered. The 25-year-old has handled a key rotational role along San Francisco's interior defensive line since joining the team as a sixth-round pick in 2017, and he stands to reprise a similar gig for 2020.

49ers' D.J. Jones: Season over
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (ankle) was placed on season-ending injured reserve Thursday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

The 24-year-old defensive tackle ends his 2019 season with 23 tackles, a pair of sacks and a forced fumble. Jones suffered an ankle injury in the 49ers' thrilling victory over New Orleans in Week 14.

49ers' D.J. Jones: Potentially season-ending injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones may have a season-ending ankle injury, Cam Inman of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Jones logged 33 of a possible 72 defensive snaps in this past Sunday's win over the Saints, but the 24-year-old defensive end suffered a "significant" ankle injury during the contest, according to Jennifer Lee Chan of NBC Sports Bay Area. Coach Kyle Shanahan relayed that it's a different ankle than the one he dealt with earlier this season. At this point, Jones is likely to at least sit out Sunday against the Falcons, but we await an official diagnosis.

49ers' D.J. Jones: Full participant Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (ankle) shed his injury designation and practiced in full Thursday, Jennifer Lee Chan of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Jones left the team's Week 13 contest prematurely after suffering an ankle injury. However, his full participation in Thursday's practice indicates that he is in a good position to take on his full workload Sunday against the Saints.

49ers' D.J. Jones: Leaves game Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (ankle) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Ravens, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

It's unclear how Jones picked up the ankle issue, but he was forced to leave the game early in the fourth quarter. As long as Jones nurses the injury, look for Sheldon Day and Jullian Taylor to be the likely beneficiaries to see an increase in defensive tackle reps.

49ers' D.J. Jones: Logs full practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (groin) was a full participant in Thursday's practice, Jennifer Lee Chan of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Jones sat out Week 11's win over the Cardinals due to his groin injury, but he now appears back to full health. Barring any setbacks, expect the 24-year-old to handle his usual workload against the Packers on Sunday.

49ers' D.J. Jones: Practices as limited participant
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (groin) was a limited participant at Wednesday's practice, Nick Wagoner of reports.

Jones suffered the injury Week 10 and didn't play last Sunday against the Cardinals. The 24-year-old will likely need to practice fully by Friday if he's going to avoid an injury designation for Sunday's matchup with the Packers.
