Jones recorded one tackle on special teams during Thursday's preseason game against the Redskins.
Jones was initially expected not to play, but it turns out the linebacker was allowed to log 11 snaps on special teams, which is his ticket to making the team in Denver.
Jones (back) has been ruled out for Friday's preseason game against the Redskins, Ryan O'Halloran of The Denver Post reports.
Jones has dealt with a combination of injuries to start training camp in 2018. Denver likes Jones as a reserve linebacker moving forward, but if he can't cement their feelings about him during the preseason, it could hinder his chances of surviving final roster trims.
Jones did not participate in Monday's practice due to a back injury, Ryan O'Halloran of the Denver Post reports.
Jones has already dealt with a sprained foot throughout the preseason, so this recent back injury presents another challenge for the linebacker to overcome as he attempts to make the 53-man roster. Jones will hope to be cleared in time for Friday's exhibition contest against the Redskins.
