Jaguars' Josh Jones: Ready to roll
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (leg) wasn't listed on the injury report for Wednesday's practice, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

Jones suffered a leg contusion late in Sunday's win over the Colts and didn't return, but the 26-year-old is again healthy and ready to assume his usual role as the team's starting safety. Jones could be a solid IDP option heading into Week 2 as, prior to his exit last week, he led the team with 12 tackles.

Jaguars' Josh Jones: Suffers leg contusion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones suffered a leg contusion and is questionable to return to the team's Week 1 contest against the Colts, John Oehser of the Jaguars' official site reports.

Jones impressed the team in camp and earned a starting role in the Jaguars' secondary. Prior to his exit, he led the team with 12 tackles.

Jaguars' Josh Jones: Could be in line for starting role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones has impressed in camp and could be in line for a starting role this season, Mark Long of reports.

There is speculation that the Jaguars could be parting ways with fellow safety Ronnie Harrison as they continue to clean house before Week 1, which would more than likely leave Jones with starting responsibilities. The 25-year-old has spent time with the Packers and Cowboys through his first three seasons in the league.

Jaguars' Josh Jones: Joining Jacksonville
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Jaguars claimed Jones off waivers via the Cowboys on Monday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

The 26-year-old saw action in six games with Dallas this season, making two tackles (one solo) in 74 total snaps. Per Yates, Jones will need to wait until the day after the Super Bowl for the move to process so he can start the offseason with his new team.

Josh Jones: Waived by Cowboys
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones was waived by the Cowboys on Saturday, Todd Archer of reports.

Jones spent his first two seasons with the Packers before getting waived during the preseason. He ended up finally finding a landing spot with the Cowboys in November, but he has been let go in favor of the team adding cornerback depth for the regular-season finale.

Cowboys' Josh Jones: Joins Cowboys' 53-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones was promoted to the Cowboys' 53-man roster Saturday, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Jones landed on the Cowboys' practice squad after being waived by the Packers in late August, and he'll now get a chance on the active roster. The 2017 second-round pick provides depth at safety while Jeff Heath (shoulder) is questionable for Sunday's game at Detroit.

Josh Jones: Gets NFI designation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (illness) was waived with a non-football illness designation Sunday, Rob Demovsky of reports.

Per Demovsky, Jones has been diagnosed with hyperthyroidism, something that can be treated with medication and won't keep him from playing. Once healthy, expect the 24-year-old to have suitors as a free agent.

Josh Jones: Let go by Green Bay
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Packers cut Jones on Sunday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Jones had been dealing with a minor undisclosed injury during training camp, and it's unclear if that was the reason for his departure. The 2017 second-round pick is coming off a season in which he made 55 tackles (40 solo) and one sack in 13 games. Now that he's officially a free agent, the 24-year-old could be a hot commodity for teams looking to bolster their secondary.

Packers' Josh Jones: Back at practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (undisclosed) was back in pads Saturday, Wes Hodkiewicz of the Packers' official site reports.

Jones missed Green Bay's first preseason tilt due to the injury, so it's a good sign he was able to return so quickly. He'll return to a reserve role in the secondary.

Packers' Josh Jones: Dealing with minor injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones didn't play in Thursday night's preseason game against the Texans due to an unspecified minor injury, Jim Owczarski of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

The location of Jones' injury is unknown, but the Packers aren't concerned about him missing any regular-season action at this point. They likely exercised caution by holding him out of the preseason opener.

Packers' Josh Jones: Will show for training camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (hamstring) said Wednesday that he will be present for training camp when it opens Thursday, Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports.

Jones informed the Packers in late May that he would skip OTAs and request a trade from the team, but has apparently changed his tune. He's also dealing with a hamstring injury, so he may be looking for medical attention from team doctors. As evidenced by this news, it should be considered a solid bet that Jones will be on the Packers' roster when the regular season starts.

Packers' Josh Jones: Nursing hamstring injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones did not participate in minicamp Tuesday due to a hamstring injury, Michael Cohen of The Athletic reports.

Jones requested a trade from the Packers while skipping OTAs a few weeks ago, but now his absence is apparently due to a legitimate injury. The severity is unclear, but it appears Green Bay is not in any rush to deal Jones regardless.

Packers' Josh Jones: Requests trade
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones is skipping OTAs and requested a trade from the Packers, Rob Demovsky of reports.

Jones was a second-round pick of the Packers two years ago and has served as a hybrid linebacker and safety. He's gotten a few starts but has played primarily as a backup, tallying 55 tackles (40 solo), including a sack, and two pass deflections while playing in 13 games in 2018. The Packers added Adrian Amos in free agency and selected Darnell Savage in the first round of the draft, pushing Jones further down the depth chart and likely playing a part in Jones' trade request.

Packers' Josh Jones: Piles up tackles after role change
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones appeared in 13 games and started five for the Packers in 2018. He finished the year with 55 tackles (40 solo), a sack and two pass deflections.

Jones tallied only three tackles over the Packers' first seven games, but his role increased the rest of the way, and he finished the season tied for third on the team in tackles. It remains to be seen what type of role Jones will play in 2019, but his ability to rack up tackles will make him an option in leagues that use IDPs if he winds up with a starting spot.

Packers' Josh Jones: Season-high 12 tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones tallied a season-high 12 tackles (six solo) in Sunday's victory over the Jets.

Jones easily surpassed his previous season best of seven tackles, and is now up to 52 tackles (38 solo) over 12 games in 2018.

Packers' Josh Jones: Records first sack
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones posted five solo tackles and a sack in Sunday's 20-17 loss to the Cardinals.

The second-year safety brought down Josh Rosen for his first sack of the season. Jones has recorded 14 tackles over the past three games, and he'll look to add to that total against the Falcons on Sunday.

Packers' Josh Jones: Playing time increases again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones made five solo tackles in Sunday's victory over the Dolphins.

Jackson saw his first extended action of the season in Week 9, and he was even more involved in Week 10, playing 89.7 percent of the Packers' defensive snaps. He figures to play plenty again in Week 11, and could even see his snap-count percentage rise again if fellow safety Kentrell Brice (ankle) is unable to go.

Packers' Josh Jones: Playing time increases
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones had six tackles (four solo) in Sunday's loss to the Patriots.

Jones was on the field for just four defensive snaps all season prior to Week 9, but he saw a major boost in activity due to the trade of Ha Ha Clinton-Dix during the week, the ejection of fellow safety Jermaine Whitehead in the first half of Sunday's contest, and the knee injury suffered by another safety, Kentrell Brice.

Packers' Josh Jones: Active Week 4
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (ankle) is listed as active Sunday against the Bills.

Jones was limited in practice all week but will suit up nonetheless to provide Green Bay with depth in their ailing secondary. Kevin King (groin) is out for the contest, while the recently signed Bashaud Breeland won't be ready to go yet either.

September 28, 2018 03:00 PM
Packers' Josh Jones: Questionable for Week 4
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Bills, Michael Cohen of The Athletic reports.

Jones has yet to play a game during the 2018 season, having been sidelined due to a lingering ankle injury. The second-year cornerback was a limited participant in practice throughout the week, and may be a game-time decision Week 4.
