The Packers cut Jones on Sunday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jones had been dealing with a minor undisclosed injury during training camp, and it's unclear if that was the reason for his departure. The 2017 second-round pick is coming off a season in which he made 55 tackles (40 solo) and one sack in 13 games. Now that he's officially a free agent, the 24-year-old could be a hot commodity for teams looking to bolster their secondary.

Jones (undisclosed) was back in pads Saturday, Wes Hodkiewicz of the Packers' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jones missed Green Bay's first preseason tilt due to the injury, so it's a good sign he was able to return so quickly. He'll return to a reserve role in the secondary.

Jones didn't play in Thursday night's preseason game against the Texans due to an unspecified minor injury, Jim Owczarski of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

EDGE Analysis

The location of Jones' injury is unknown, but the Packers aren't concerned about him missing any regular-season action at this point. They likely exercised caution by holding him out of the preseason opener.

Jones (hamstring) said Wednesday that he will be present for training camp when it opens Thursday, Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jones informed the Packers in late May that he would skip OTAs and request a trade from the team, but has apparently changed his tune. He's also dealing with a hamstring injury, so he may be looking for medical attention from team doctors. As evidenced by this news, it should be considered a solid bet that Jones will be on the Packers' roster when the regular season starts.

Jones did not participate in minicamp Tuesday due to a hamstring injury, Michael Cohen of The Athletic reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jones requested a trade from the Packers while skipping OTAs a few weeks ago, but now his absence is apparently due to a legitimate injury. The severity is unclear, but it appears Green Bay is not in any rush to deal Jones regardless.

Jones is skipping OTAs and requested a trade from the Packers, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jones was a second-round pick of the Packers two years ago and has served as a hybrid linebacker and safety. He's gotten a few starts but has played primarily as a backup, tallying 55 tackles (40 solo), including a sack, and two pass deflections while playing in 13 games in 2018. The Packers added Adrian Amos in free agency and selected Darnell Savage in the first round of the draft, pushing Jones further down the depth chart and likely playing a part in Jones' trade request.

Jones appeared in 13 games and started five for the Packers in 2018. He finished the year with 55 tackles (40 solo), a sack, and two pass deflections.

EDGE Analysis

Jones tallied only three tackles over the Packers' first seven games, but his role increased the rest of the way, and he finished the season tied for third on the team in tackles. It remains to be seen what type of role Jones will play in 2019, but his ability to rack up tackles will make him an option in leagues that use IDPs if he winds up with a starting spot.

Jones tallied a season-high 12 tackles (six solo) in Sunday's victory over the Jets.

EDGE Analysis

Jones posted five solo tackles and a sack in Sunday's 20-17 loss to the Cardinals.

EDGE Analysis

The second-year safety brought down Josh Rosen for his first sack of the season. Jones has recorded 14 tackles over the past three games, and he'll look to add to that total against the Falcons on Sunday.

Jones made five solo tackles in Sunday's victory over the Dolphins.

EDGE Analysis

Jackson saw his first extended action of the season in Week 9, and he was even more involved in Week 10, playing 89.7 percent of the Packers' defensive snaps. He figures to play plenty again in Week 11, and could even see his snap-count percentage rise again if fellow safety Kentrell Brice (ankle) is unable to go.
