Jones officially retired from the NFL on Friday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.
Jones' most recent NFL action came in the form of seven games with the Broncos, where he logged nine tackles and an interception before being let go after Week 11. "Pacman" will -- of course -- be most remembered for his time with the Bengals. Jones started in 68 of 100 games and racked up 366 total tackles, 12 interceptions and 64 pass breakups. The 14-year-pro's career will likely also remind fans of his problems off the field, including the most recent incident where Jones was arrested for disorderly conduct, public intoxication, intimidation and resisting arrest at a casino in Indiana in late February.
Jones was arrested Wednesday morning in Indiana on numerous charges, ESPN reports.
Jones was arrested for disorderly conduct, public intoxication, intimidation and resisting arrest at the Rising Sun Casino. This isn't a good look for the 35-year-old, who's trying to keep his career alive, especially since he just served a suspension last season for a 2017 incident in which Jones was arrested for allegedly pushing a security guard.
Jones was cut by the Broncos on Tuesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL.com reports.
Jones, a 14-year veteran, appeared in just two of his seven games in Denver. He recorded one interception and nine tackles during his stint with the club. It is unclear if the 35-year-old will find another landing spot at this stage in his career.
Jones (thigh) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice.
Jones missed Denver's last three games with a thigh injury, but since the 35-year-old was able to practice in full Wednesday, he should be ready to go against the Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs on Sunday. He has nine tackles and one interception on the year.
Coach Vance Joseph said Friday that he expects Jones (thigh) to play Week 8 against the Chiefs, Troy Renck of Denver 7 News reports.
Leg injuries have sidelined Jones for three game this season, but the veteran cornerback and return man appears to be nearing a return to full health. Over his four appearances on the campaign, Jones has generated nine tackles, two pass breakups and one interception.
Jones (thigh) is ruled out for Thursday's game against the Cardinals, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports.
Jones missed two games with hamstring injuries, and will be sidelined for his third consecutive contest due to what appears to be a new thigh injury. A timetable for the veteran's recovery remains unclear, and rookies Phillip Lindsay and DaeSean Hamilton will serve as Denver's primary punt returners as long as Jones sits out.
Jones (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Rams, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.
Jones is dealing with a lingering hamstring injury and will now miss his second straight game as a result. Jones remains without a clear timetable for his recovery and will continue to be evaluated on a week-to-week basis.
Jones was held out of Sunday's 34-16 loss to the Jets due to a hamstring injury, Zac Stevens of BSNDenver.com reports.
Jones has been recovering from a lingering hamstring injury for nearly three weeks and was sidelined Sunday. It remains to be seen whether the starting punt returner will be healthy enough to suit up in Week 6.
Jones (leg) is ruled out for Sunday's game against the Jets, Patrick Smyth reports.
Jones continues to progress in his recovery from a lingering leg injury. As long as the depth cornerback remains sidelined, Phillip Lindsay could serve as Denver's primary punt returner.
Jones (thigh) is playing Monday against the Chiefs, Nicki Jhabvala of The Athletic reports.
Jones was dealing with a thigh injury last week, but it won't keep the veteran defensive back from taking the field Monday. Jones played a rotational role in the secondary in his first two games of the season, so look for a similar snap count Monday night.
Jones (hamstring) is listed as questionable leading into Monday's game against Kansas City, Zac Stevens of BSNDenver.com reports.
Earlier this week, reports indicated that Jones was in line to return to game action come Monday's affair. While this may still be the case, things seem a little murkier than previously reported. Should Jones be forced to watch from the sidelines, Phillip Lindsay or rookie DaeSean Hamilton would likely take over the punt returning duties.
Jones (hamstring) is expected to play in Monday's game against the Chiefs, Kyle Fredrickson of The Denver Post reports.
Jones was sidelined for all of last week due to a hamstring injury, and while it's unclear how much practicing the veteran will do this week, it looks like he will be good to go by Monday. With Tramaine Brock (groin) also expected back against the Chiefs, the Broncos will get some much-needed depth back in the secondary.
Jones (hamstring) is inactive for Sunday's Week 3 tilt against the Ravens.
The veteran corner missed practice all week, so his status isn't unexpected by any means. The Broncos will be a bit thinner in the secondary against an improved Ravens passing attack as a result, and they'll need a fill-in for Jones' punt return duties as well.
Jones (hamstring) is listed as questionable ahead of Sunday's matchup with the Ravens, Zac Stevens of BSNDenver.com reports.
Jones was unable to practice all week, so he is presumably more on the doubtful side of questionable. Still, his status is unlikely to be confirmed until closer to kickoff. If he is unable to go look for Isaac Yiadom to see some increased snaps providing depth at cornerback, but it is unclear who would take over punt return duties. Undrafted rookie running back Phillip Lindsay would presumably be a candidate.
Jones is dealing with a hamstring ailment, Troy Renck of Denver 7 News reports.
The extent of the injury as well as subsequent origin remains somewhat unknown at the moment. What is known, however, is that Jones could run the risk of missing Week 3 action due to the lingering nature of hamstring issues. It's too early to predict his status for Sunday's contest, but how the 13-year vet holds up in practice this week could dictate his game availability.
Jones (hernia) inked a deal with the Broncos on Sunday.
Jones spent the past eight seasons of his career in Cincinnati, recording 12 interceptions and five forced fumbles over that span. The veteran cornerback started all nine games he played last year before being placed on injured reserve with a groin injury. Jones should contribute to the Broncos pass defense in some form or another, and could best serve as a depth option behind starting cornerbacks Chris Harris Jr. and Bradley Roby.
The Bengals informed Jones (hernia) they won't pick up his 2018 option, but they're interested in bringing him back to compete for work as a nickel corner and return man, Katherine Terrell of ESPN.com reports.
The 34-year-old Jones has been in Cincinnati since 2010, highlighted by a four-year stretch from 2013 to 2016 in which he picked off 10 passes and had at least 56 tackles each season. He started all nine games he played last year, but logged less than two-thirds of the defensive snaps in seven of those contests. Jones can become an unrestricted free agent March 14 when the league year begins, and he should draw interest from other teams as a potential slot corner and return specialist. He should make a full recovery from February sports hernia surgery in time for the start of training camp.
Jones underwent surgery to repair a hernia Thursday, Katherine Terrell of ESPN reports.
This procedure is likely related to the groin injury that planted Jones on injured reserve for the last month of the season. Given the minor nature of the situation, Jones should be healthy in time for offseason workouts in April. However, coming off one of the worst seasons in his lengthy career and carrying a cap hit of over $6 million in 2018, there's a chance Jones could be sent packing from Cincinnati before that time.
Jones (groin) was placed on injured reserve Saturday, Jim Owczarski of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Jones suffered the injury while recording his first interception of the season in last week's loss to the Steelers. The 34-year-old will finish his 11th season with 23 tackles (19 solo), four passes defended and one pick. Williams Jackson III will presumably replace him at cornerback.
Jones (groin) is a candidate to be placed on injured reserve by the Bengals.
Jones suffered the injury in last Monday's loss to the Steelers and didn't practice this week. The fact that injured reserve is under consideration at this point doesn't bode well for the veteran cornerback and implies the move could be imminent.
