Broncos' Joseph Jones: Returning to Denver
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones signed a one-year contract with the Broncos on Saturday, Nicki Jhabvala of The Athletic reports.

The Broncos opted not to tender the 26-year-old a contract as a restricted free agent, but they'll bring him back for 2020 at a lesser figure. Jones had only eight total tackles last season but was a reliable option on special teams.

Joseph Jones: Won't be tendered
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Broncos will not tender Jones ahead of free agency, Nicki Jhabvala of The Athletic reports.

It's reportedly possible for Jones to return to Denver this offseason, but the Broncos at least won't be using a tender to make that happen.

Broncos' Joseph Jones: Active Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (ankle) is active for Sunday's game against the Chiefs.

Jones has played only a handful of snaps on defense this year, so with the typical starting linebackers healthy, Jones will likely stick to a special-teams role.

Broncos' Joseph Jones: Dons questionable tag
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (back) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against Kansas City, Nicki Jhabvala of The Athletic reports.

Jones put in a limited practice Wednesday before sitting out the last two of the week. He nevertheless receives the questionable tag, giving him a chance to play Week 15.

Broncos' Joseph Jones: Set to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (foot) is active Week 12 against Buffalo.

Jones managed to return to practice on a limited basis after missing the first two sessions of the week, which was just enough for the special teams player to avoid the inactive list.

Broncos' Joseph Jones: Officially listed as questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (foot) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Bills, Zac Stevens of TheDNVR.com reports.

Jones practiced in a limited capacity Friday after beginning the week with back-to-back absences. He plays a key role on special teams for the Broncos.

Broncos' Joseph Jones: Practices in full
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (triceps) was a full participant in Thursday's practice.

Jones wasn't able to suit up versus the Jaguars this past Sunday due to a triceps injury, but he now appears to have fully recovered. He's on track to resume his usual depth role in Denver's linebacker corps Week 5.

Broncos' Joseph Jones: Unable to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (triceps) is inactive for Sunday's game versus the Jaguars.

Jones will miss his third straight game, but he was considered a game-time decision for this contest, which bodes well for his chances of playing Week 5 versus the Chargers. Todd Davis and Josey Jewell are the starters, but Alexander Johnson and Corey Nelson will rotate in occasionally.

Broncos' Joseph Jones: Game-time decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Broncos have listed Jones (triceps) as questionable for Sunday's game versus the Jaguars, Aric DiLalla of the team's official website reports.

Jones was limited at practice all week and is looking like a true game-time decision Sunday. That is positive news considering he has yet to make his season debut. He will help provide depth at inside linebacker if ultimately given the green light.

Broncos' Joseph Jones: Won't play Week 3
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Vic Fangio said Thursday that Jones (triceps) won't suit up for Sunday's tilt against the Packers, Nicki Jhabvala of The Athletic reports.

Jones will miss a third consecutive game due to his lingering triceps injury. A timetable for his return remains undisclosed, though it does appear that Jones is making progress in his recovery.

Broncos' Joseph Jones: Limited Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (triceps) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

Jones avoided IR to start the season while recovering from a triceps injury, but he was still expected to miss several weeks due to the injury. While it seems unlikely that Jones makes his return this weekend, his return to practice, even on a limited basis, is certainly a good sign for his recovery.

Broncos' Joseph Jones: Won't play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (triceps) has been ruled out for Sunday's contest against Chicago, Zac Stevens of BSNDenver.com reports.

Jones was already expected to miss multiple games to start the season, so his absence for Week 2 isn't much of a surprise. The 25-year-old has yet to practice this season. When healthy, Jones is expected to be limited to a special teams role.

September 12, 2019 10:08 AM
Broncos' Joseph Jones: Still not practicing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (triceps) sat out practice Wednedsday, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports.

Jones originally was expected to miss multiple games, so his absence isn't surprising. A practice session of some fashion will precede his return to game action. Jones worked mainly on special teams last season, recording 16 tackles in 16 games.

Broncos' Joseph Jones: To avoid IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Though Jones is still several weeks away from recovering, the Broncos plan to float him (triceps) on the 53-man roster and not place him on injured reserve, Zac Stevens of BSNDenver reports.

The news is a vote of confidence for Jones from a recovery standpoint, as other players who might have been floated on the 53-man roster -- including rookie quarterback Drew Lock and running back Theo Riddick -- will instead head to injured reserve. Jones' absence in the preseason cost him an opportunity to distinguish himself on defense with Todd Davis' (calf) absence, but he's valuable enough on special teams for the team to hold out hope that he'll only miss a few games. When he returns, he'll join Alexander Johnson and newly signed Corey Nelson as a core special-teams contributor and backup behind Davis and Josey Jewell.

Broncos' Joseph Jones: Facing lengthy absence
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones is expected to miss six to eight weeks while recovering from a triceps injury, Nicki Jhabvala of The Athletic reports.

Jones saw a second opinion in regards to his injury, but the second doctor concurred with the team's doctor. The Northwestern product's injury isn't one that requires surgery, so that's a positive sign for his recovery. With a concrete timeline in place, Jones won't be ready for Week 1 of the regular season against the Raiders.

Broncos' Joseph Jones: Avoids surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones will not require surgery to recover from his triceps injury, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

Jones is working his way back from a partially torn triceps sustained during Thursday's preseason opener versus the Falcons. While it's encouraging that the linebacker will not need to undergo surgery, Jones is still expected to remain sidelined for multiple weeks.

August 4, 2019 02:48 PM
Broncos' Joseph Jones: Absence likely to continue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Vic Fangio said Sunday that Jones will "definitely be out for a few weeks" while dealing with a triceps injury, Kyle Fredrickson of The Denver Post reports.

Jones suffered an elbow injury in Thursday's preseason victory against the Falcons, an injury feared to be a partially torn triceps. That diagnosed wasn't necessarily confirmed, but it's likely the team will give Jones some time off and re-evaluate him after the rest. In the meantime, expect Keishawn Bierria and Joe Dineen to see an increase in reps during practice and preseason contests.

Broncos' Joseph Jones: Injures elbow Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones banged up his elbow in Thursday's preseason opening victory over the Falcons and is set for an MRI on Friday, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

The Broncos fear Jones suffered a partially torn triceps. If confirmed, his season would certainly be in jeopardy. Expect an update on his status once the Broncos provide more clarity on the situation.

Broncos' Joseph Jones: Sticking with Denver
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones signed his exclusive rights free-agent tender with the Broncos on Tuesday.

Jones had 16 tackles (13 solo) in 16 games for the Broncos in 2018 as he mostly served on special teams. The 25-year-old is likely to fulfill a similar reserve role in the upcoming season if he can remain on the roster.

Broncos' Joseph Jones: Records one tackle against Redskins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.
