Jones (arm) and Travaris Cadet served as the kickoff returners during June minicamp, Joe Buscaglia of WKBW reports.

EDGE Analysis

A career special teamer, Jones returned two kicks for 50 yards in eight games last season before a broken arm ended his campaign in early November. He re-signed with the Bills in March and now figures to compete with Cadet, Marcus Murphy and Keith Ford for what likely will be two roster spots. LeSean McCoy and Chris Ivory appear locked in atop the depth chart at running back.

Jones (arm) is re-signing with the Bills.

EDGE Analysis

Jones played 128 snaps on special teams and only three on offense in eight games for the Bills last season before a broken arm landed him on injured reserve. While unlikely to be part of the equation in the backfield, his contributions on special team could help him stick around the roster as the No. 4 running back. Jones figures to recover from the broken arm before training camp, if he hasn't already.

Jones (arm) was placed on Injured Reserve on Saturday, Joe Buscaglia of 7 ABC Buffalo reports.

EDGE Analysis

Unsurprisingly, Jones has been placed on IR after being lost for the season due to a broken arm. As a result, the Bills signed Travaris Cadet, who most recently played for the Jets, to bolster their backfield.

Jones will miss the rest of the season after breaking his arm Thursday against the Bills, BuffaloNews.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jones has been a consistent contributor on special teams for the Bills this season, while still posing as quality depth at running back. However, he was the victim of friendly fire Thursday when a teammate dove into him while attempting to recover an onside kick, breaking Jones' arm in the process. We'd expect the Bills to sign an outside free agent shortly since Buffalo doesn't have any tailbacks stashed on the practice squad.

Jones is out for the rest of Thursday's contest against the Jets with an arm injury.

Jones (knee), who was a limited participant Wednesday, practiced fully Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

Jones has yet to take an offensive snap this season, but his fine work on special teams is keeping him active each Sunday. He remains the third or fourth option when it comes to carries, however.

Bills coach Sean McDermott said the team will use a committee behind LeSeam McCoy, mentioning Jones, Mike Tolbert and Joe Banyard, Joe Buscaglia of 7 ABC Buffalo reports.

EDGE Analysis

A 2011 fourth-round pick, Jones has mostly played special teams to this point in his career, taking 44 carries for 183 yards and catching 17 passes for 240 yards in 66 career games. He'd likely be at the bottom of the pecking order even if McCoy were to suffer an injury.

Jones survived final roster cuts and has landed a spot for the time being on the Bills' current 53-man roster.

EDGE Analysis

In the end, the Bills kept four running backs and two fullbacks, and even though Jones didn't wow in the preseason his versatility and experience probably got him the job. That all said, he's likely about fifth in line for potential carries.

The Bills signed Jones on Wednesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

At this point in his career, Jones is most valuable as a kick returner, which is a clear need for the Bills due to Brandon Tate's calf injury and Walter Powell's four-game suspension to begin the season. In five campaigns with the Raiders, Jones returned 75 kickoffs at a clip of 23.3, which was powered by an AFC-leading 829 kick-return yards in 2015. The Bills will likely give Jones plenty of chances throughout the preseason to prove worthy of a spot on the 53-man roster.

Jones was released by the Raiders on Thursday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jones struggled in 2016 and was likely not going to be any more than a depth back in 2017. He had just five touches on offense last year, combing for 35 yards rushing and receiving and no touchdowns. Now entering his 7th campaign, he'll look to catch on as a depth back and special teams player elsewhere.
