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

EDGE Analysis

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.

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.

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

EDGE Analysis

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.

Jones (chest) was activated from injured reserve Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

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.

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

EDGE Analysis

Jones has resided on IR since Nov. 14, as 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.

Jones (chest) was placed on injured reserve Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

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.

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

EDGE Analysis

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.
