Jones (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Redskins, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jones got on the practice field for the first time this season, although he remained limited. The second-year pro played a starter's snap count last season, but his usage may be capped in his season debut.

Jones (ankle) was estimated to be a limited practice participant Wednesday, Michael Cohen of The Athletic reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Packers don't actually practice Wednesdays, but it's still a positive step as Jones sat out the first two games and has not practiced over the last couple weeks. Once the second-year safety actually steps onto the practice field Thursday there should be a better indication about a potential return for Week 3.

Jones (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Vikings.

EDGE Analysis

This comes as no surprise since Jones hasn't practiced in roughly two weeks. Look for Kentrell Brice and Ha Ha Clinton-Dix to continue to man the two starting spots at safety.

Jones (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's regular season opener against the Bears, Michael Cohen of The Athletic reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jones was not expected to play after missing both Wednesday and Thursday practice and will instead try to return for Week 2. Kentrell Brice figures to be the main beneficiary of Jones' absence and should see a starter's share of snaps at strong safety Sunday night.

Jones (ankle) not expected to play in Sunday's season-opener against the Bears, Michael Cohen of The Athletic reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jones is also expected to be a non-participant in Thursday's practice, having been spotted in the rehab group. As long as the 2017 second-rounder is sidelined with his ankle injury, Kentrell Brice stands to see a significant uptick in playing time. When Jones is able to return to the field, the 23-year-old will be in the mix for the starting strong safety job.

Jones (undisclosed) was a non-participant in practice Wednesday, Jim Owczarski of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jones, expected to serve as the Packers' starting strong safety, sat out practice Wednesday due to an undisclosed injury in anticipation of the upcoming season-opener against the Bears on Sunday. There's no reason to believe that the 2017 second-rounder's injury is long-term, and Jones should be considered day-to-day until more information about the 23-year-old's injury is disclosed.

Jones assisted in one special teams tackle in Thursday's preason game against the Steelers.

EDGE Analysis

Jones suffered a head injury during the preseason opener last week but thankfully avoided a concussion. The 23-year-old didn't accumulate much for stats Thursday but still played 25 defensive snaps as he looks to lock down the starting job at strong safety.

Jones was not placed in concussion protocol after suffering a head injury in Thursday's preseason opener against the Titans, Michael Cohen of The Athletic Wisconsin reports.

EDGE Analysis

This is good news for the Packers, as a concussion could have left Jones in protocol for an indefinite amount of time. Now, while it's not a concussion, Jones still did suffer some sort of head injury, and the Green Bay likely won't be quick to rush the safety back to the field.

Jones was held back by an ankle injury during mandatory minicamp Tuesday, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

After a rookie season as a rotational safety racking up 71 tackles (60 solo), five pass breakups and two sacks, Jones is poised to take over as starting strong safety now that Morgan Burnett is gone. For the time being, Marwin Evans and Kentrell Brice will slot in for team drills. No timeline was given for Jones' recovery, but the injury doesn't appear long-term.

Jones projects to take over as the starting strong safety in Green Bay, Rob Demovsky

EDGE Analysis

Incumbent starter Morgan Burnett signed with the Steelers on Tuesday and Jones doesn't have any serious competition to fill the opening left behind. It won't be a huge transition for Jones considering he saw a lot of playing time as a rookie, and ultimately logged the second-most snaps among Green Bay safeties in 2017 due to Burnett's injuries. However, there's room for his playing time to expand considering Burnett had logged 948 snaps as the clear starter in 2016, which is quite a jump from the 735 snaps Jones logged this past season. Barring an injury of his own, the 2017 second-rounder seems poised to build upon his inaugural stat line of 71 tackles, two sacks, five pass breakups and one interception.
