Jaguars' Josh Jones: Re-signs with Jaguars
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones signed a one-year contract with the Jaguars on Friday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Jones recorded a career high in tackles with the Jaguars in his 2020 campaign (83 tackles), good for third overall on the team. Jones drew starts in 13 games this past season and will aim to continue expanding his profile in the defense during the 2021 season.

Jaguars' Josh Jones: Starts 13 games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones had one solo tackle Week 17 against the Colts and had 83 tackles (59 solo) and one interception in 13 games this season.

The 26-year-old failed to establish himself with the Packers and Cowboys over the first three years of his career, but he started 13 games for the Jags in 2020 and ranked third on the team with 83 tackles. He also struggled in coverage and allowed 33 of 38 passes to be completed for a 138.9 QB rating. Jones is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason and is unlikely to receive interest for a starting job on any contending teams.

Jaguars' Josh Jones: Shakes injury tag
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (shoulder) won't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game versus the Ravens.

Jones suffered a shoulder injury that forced him out of last week's loss to the Titans. However, the fourth-year safety upgraded to full participation during Friday's session, clearing him for Week 15. Jones will start at strong safety. He sits third on the team with 74 tackles (50 solo) through 10 games.

Jaguars' Josh Jones: Suffers shoulder injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones won't return to Sunday's game against the Titans due to a shoulder injury.

The 26-year-old totaled three tackles before the team announced the injury during the second half. Andrew Wingard should be the next man up if Jones is forced to miss additional time.

Jaguars' Josh Jones: Reaches double-digit tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones had 10 tackles (seven solo) during Sunday's 27-24 loss at Minnesota.

The 26-year-old returned from a three-game absence and played all 91 defensive snaps for Jacksonville. Jones has reached double-digit tackles in four games this season and is averaging 7.9 tackles per contest with zero interceptions or sacks.

Jaguars' Josh Jones: Set to return Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (chest) was activated from injured reserve Saturday.

Jones is expected to start at strong safety in Sunday's game against the Vikings. With the Jaguars' top three cornerbacks out, Jones' return is a major boost to the secondary. During the first eight games of the season, the 2017 second-round pick produced 61 tackles.

Jaguars' Josh Jones: Designated for return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Jaguars designated Jones (chest) for a return from injured reserve Wednesday, John Shipley of SI.com reports.

Jones has resided on IR since Nov. 14, and Wednesday marked the first time Jones returned to practice since his chest injury. The team will now have 21 days to activate him, otherwise he'll miss the remainder of the 2020 season. Jones could step into the lineup as early as Sunday's game against Minnesota, but expect Andrew Wingard to continue to start at strong safety until Jones gets back to full strength.

Jaguars' Josh Jones: Lands on injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (chest) was placed on injured reserve Saturday.

The 26-year-old was considered questionable for Sunday's game at Green Bay, but he'll now be sidelined for at least the next three contests. It's unclear if Jones is expected to be able to return after sitting out the minimum three games. Daniel Thomas could step into the starting role at strong safety for the Jags, though Andrew Wingard, fresh off injured reserve, could also be an option.

Jaguars' Josh Jones: Battling chest injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones is questionable for Sunday's game against the Packers with a chest injury, John Shipley of SI.com reports.

Jones was limited to a 66 percent snap share during last week's loss to the Texans, though it's unclear when the chest issue first surfaced. Daniel Thomas should see increased reps if Jones is limited or unable to play Sunday.

Jaguars' Josh Jones: Records eight tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones had eight tackles (six solo) during Sunday's 39-29 loss to the Chargers.

The 26-year-old tied for second on the team in tackles while once again playing every defensive snap. Jones and Joe Schobert are tied for the team lead with 56 total tackles heading into the Week 8 bye.

Jaguars' Josh Jones: Tallies nine tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones had nine tackles (eight solo) during Sunday's 34-16 loss to the Lions.

Jones finished second on the team in tackles and played all 77 defensive snaps. The 26-year-old is tied for the team lead with 47 total tackles despite the fact he was ejected Week 5 and missed most of the second half.

October 11, 2020 03:20 PM
Jaguars' Josh Jones: Takes early leave Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones was ejected from Sunday's game against the Texans for a helmet-to-helmet hit, John Oehser of the Jaguars' official site reports.

Jones totaled two tackles before being ejected during the second half for the illegal hit. Rookie Daniel Thomas will step in at strong safety for the Jaguars.

Jaguars' Josh Jones: Racks up 11 tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones had 11 tackles (seven solo) during Sunday's 33-25 loss to the Bengals.

The 26-year-old reached double-digit tackles during the season opener and did so again in Week 4 to lead the defense. Jones has 36 tackles (23 solo) through the first quarter of the season, which makes him a solid IDP option if he can continue that production.

Jaguars' Josh Jones: Tallies seven tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones had seven tackles (three solo) during Sunday's 33-30 loss to the Titans.

The 2017 second-round pick led the team with 12 tackles during the season opener before exiting with a leg bruise, but he returned to play every defensive snap in Week 2. Sunday's output likely represents the more common level of production from Jones, but he could still be on the IDP radar if he consistently reaches that mark.

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 AP.org 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 ESPN.com 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.
