The Bills moved Jones (neck) to injured reserve Wednesday, Chris Brown of the team's official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jones hadn't played since Oct. 14 due to the neck injury and didn't seem to be making much progress in his recovery, as he failed to practice in any capacity prior to the Bills' Week 8 loss to the Patriots. The transaction opens up a roster spot for quarterback Matt Barkley, who was signed to a one-year deal to provide added insurance behind Nathan Peterman while Josh Allen (shoulder) and Derek Anderson (concussion) tend to injuries.

Jones (neck) will not play in Monday's matchup with the Patriots, Matthew Fairburn of The Athletic reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jones will miss his second straight game due to a neck injury he suffered in Week 6 against the Texans. His absence at practice throughout the week makes this news relatively unsurprising. LeSean McCoy (concussion) is still in the league's protocol, which leaves Chris Ivory and Marcus Murphy as the team's only healthy backs.

Jones (neck) didn't practice Thursday, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jones originally suffered a neck injury in Week 6 against the Texans, and was unable to suit up in Week 7. His status for Week 8 is still up in the air, but this news certainly doesn't bode well for his return to the field. If Jones is unable to suit up in Week 8, Marcus Murphy could assume his role on special teams and as depth running back.

Jones will not play Sunday against the Colts due to a neck injury, Mike Rodak of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

It wasn't previously clear what was ailing Jones, but it has now been revealed that he is dealing with a neck issue. The extent of his setback is not certain, so it remains to be seen if he will miss any additional be action beyond this week's contest.

Jones (undisclosed) did not practice Wednesday, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jones is week-to-week after suffering an undisclosed injury during Sunday's loss to the Texans. It remains to be seen whether Jones wills suit up against the Colts in Week 7, but if Buffalo's special teams captain remains sidelined for any amount of time it's possible that depth running back Marcus Murphy could serve as the team's primary kickoff and punt returner.

Jones is week-to-week with an undisclosed injury suffered during Sunday's loss to the Texans, Chris Brown of the Bills' official sitereports.

EDGE Analysis

Jones is a strong special teams player, but as a depth player and with the Bills having other options in the return game, his loss wouldn't be that big of a hit to a team that has much bigger problems trying to figure out the current mess of a quarterback situation.

Jones (head) is active Sunday against the Vikings.

EDGE Analysis

Jones will make the active roster Week 3 despite logging limited practices all week due to a head injury that wasn't ruled a concussion. He's been primarily a special teams player all season, having yet to record an offensive snap. There's a slight chance that changes this week with LeSean McCoy (ribs) inactive, though Chris Ivory and Marcus Murphy are expected to lead the Buffalo rushing attack.

Jones (head) practiced on a limited basis for the third straight day Friday and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game in Minnesota, the Bills' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jones did not suffer a concussion even though he took a nasty and bloody hit last week, so it seems like he be able to play through the cuts and scrapes come Sunday. If he's scratched, it would have just as much to do with LeSean McCoy (ribs) suiting up and the Bills trying to use their depth at other positions.

Jones (head) practiced on a limited basis for the second straight day Thursday, the Bills' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jones surprisingly didn't get concussed on a Week 2 hit where he took a licking after his helmet had already fallen off on the play. It looks like the veteran and special teams stud will keep on ticking even though he's scraped up. The Bills could use some extra depth at running back this week given that LeSean McCoy will be playing at less than 100 percent, if he plays at all.

Coach Sean McDermott said Monday that Jones did not suffer a concussion during Sunday's loss to the Chargers and had his head "bruised and cut up" after taking a hit, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jones doesn't factor much into the offense, but he is a strong special teams player and with LeSean McCoy (ribs) in pain and perhaps limited heading into Week 3, it'd help the team and the running back depth if Jones can suit up this week against Minnesota.
