When asked if he will be ready for Week 1's matchup with the Jets, Jones (calf) responded, "100 percent for New York. 100 percent."

EDGE Analysis

Jones strained his calf during warmups before Sunday's preseason loss to the Jaguars, sidelining him for the game. "When I back-pedaled I didn't feel a pull, I just felt pain. It loosened up as I was going," Jones explained Monday. "I was trying to go back out and Coach (Marvin) Lewis said, 'No way.' Yeah, if it was the regular season I would have played." Look for Jones to rest for the final preseason game against the Colts on Thursday in order to nurse his calf a little more before the season gets underway.

Jones will not play in Sunday's preseason game against the Jaguars after suffering a calf strain during warmups, Paul Dehner Jr. of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jones will still watch the game from the sideline, suggesting his injury isn't too serious. It would be a major issue for the Bengals if he missed time during the regular season, as the team has plenty of first-round draft picks at cornerback, but only Jones has (thus far) proven to be a high-level NFL performer.

Jones re-signed with the Bengals on a three-year contract, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports

EDGE Analysis

Despite drawing a ton of attention for his costly penalty in the playoffs, Jones enjoyed one of the best seasons of his career in 2015. He'll turn 33 early in the 2016 season, but he seems to have gotten better with age and should still be locked in as a starter. Jones picked off three passes in each of the past three seasons, with tackle totals of 56,63 and 62.

Jones (foot) is considered probable for Sunday's game against the 49ers.

EDGE Analysis

Jones has missed two of the Bengals' past four games due to a foot injury, but practiced this week and should be good to go Sunday. Potentially a Pro Bowl cornerback this year, Jones will hope to stymie opposing quarterback Blaine Gabbert this weekend.

Jones (foot) practiced on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Jones has been hampered with a foot injury the past several weeks, which caused him to miss last Sunday's loss to the Steelers. His participation in practice on Wednesday is a reassuring sign for the Bengals as they are dealing with a host of other injuries in the secondary including George safety Iloka (groin) and cornerback Leon Hall (back).

Jones (foot) is inactive Sunday against Pittsburgh.

EDGE Analysis

Jones was listed as doubtful for the game, so his inactive status comes as no surprise. Leon Hall and Dre Kirkpatrick are both candidates for more playing time.

Jones is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Steelers, Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Considering Jones told reporters yesterday he wouldn't play Sunday, this designation doesn't come as much of surprise. Both Leon Hall (back) and Dre Kirkpatrick (knee) appear set to return to the field against the Steelers, so it remains to be seen who might take over as the third cornerback should Jones eventually wind up on the inactive list.

Jones told reporters Wednesday that he will not play Sunday against the Steelers, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports

EDGE Analysis

Jones has been a bit banged up of late, but still managed to see the field for 48 snaps Sunday against the Browns. His condition may have taken a turn for the worse, however, as the cornerback was seen in the locker room with his foot in a cast, and was wheeling around on a scooter. Nothing official from the team has been released just yet, but at this stage, it may not be wise to count on him suiting up Sunday. If he does sit, the Bengals will have to hope both Dre Kirkpatrick (calf) and Leon Hall (back) are healthy enough to play. Otherwise, the team could be hurting for secondary depth against a high-powered Steelers offense.

Jones (foot) is active Sunday against the Browns.

EDGE Analysis

Jones logged another limited week on the practice field, but this is becoming the norm for the veteran who has only missed one game this year. He seems in line to start opposite Dre Kirkpatrick in place of Leon Hall, who is inactive for the matchup due to a back injury.
