Returning to Buffalo

Jones agreed to terms with the Bills on Thursday, Sal Capaccio of WGR Sports Radio 550 Buffalo reports.

Analysis: Jones has been a key player on special teams for the Bills across the last two seasons, but he hasn't recorded any touches on the offensive side of the ball. He should play a similar role in 2022.

Will play Week 15

Jones (knee) is active Week 15 against Carolina.

Analysis: Jones was considered questionable for the contest after logging just one limited practice session this week, but he'll be able to avoid Buffalo's three-man inactive list. His role this year has been almost exclusively on special teams, however, so backfield duties will be left to Devin Singletary and Matt Breida, with Zack Moss being a healthy scratch for the contest.

Remains questionable

Jones (knee) is questionable for Sunday against the Panthers.

Analysis: Jones was able to log a limited practice Friday after not participating Wednesday or Thursday. He suffered the knee injury on punt coverage in the Bills' Week 14 loss to the Buccaneers. With only one offensive snap played on the season, his absence would strictly impact the Bills' special-teams unit.

Doesn't practice Wednesday

Jones (knee) was listed as a non-participant at Wednesday's practice.

Analysis: Jones suffered a knee injury during a punt coverage during the Bills' Week 14 loss to the Buccaneers, but he was able to return to the contest. However, he now starts the week off with a missed practice, and if he doesn't return in at least a limited capacity Thursday, then his status for the team's Week 15 matchup against the Panthers will be in jeopardy.

Returns Sunday

Jones (knee) has returned to the Bills' game against the Buccaneers on Sunday, Alaina Getzenberg of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Jones was injured on punt coverage early in the game. His return should be beneficial to the Bills' special-teams unit.

Dec 12, 2021 1:57 PM EST

Questionable to return Sunday

Jones (knee) is questionable to return to Sunday's contest against the Buccaneers, Alaina Getzenberg of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Jones was slow to get up after covering a punt, but he was ultimately able to leave the field under his own power. The veteran running back has only played one offensive snap this season, so his potential absence shouldn't impact the Bills' offensive gameplan.

Dec 12, 2021 1:43 PM EST

No injury designation

Jones (illness) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Colts.

Analysis: Jones missed Wednesday's practice due to an illness, but he was a full participant the past two days. The 33-year-old has almost exclusively played special teams this season and should remain in that role Sunday.

Nov 19, 2021 2:08 PM EST

Out sick Wednesday

Jones missed Wednesday's practice due to an illness.

Analysis: Assuming the illness is of the non-COVID variety, the special teams maven has plenty of time to get back to playable health ahead of Sunday's game against the Colts. Jones has seen one snap on offense all season compared to 162 special-teams plays, so that tells you all you need to know about where his value lies for the Bills.

Nov 17, 2021 7:18 PM EST

No injury designation

Jones (hamstring) doesn't carry an injury designation heading into Monday's game against the Titans, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

Analysis: Jones was held out of practice Thursday and Friday due to his hamstring injury, but he was a full participant Saturday. The 33-year-old has played exclusively on special teams this year.

Oct 16, 2021 12:48 PM EST

Uncertain for primetime action

Jones (hamstring) missed practice for the second straight day Friday.

Analysis: Jones will likely have to practice on some level Saturday to have a chance of suiting up Monday night against the Titans. While he hasn't even logged a carry over 18 regular-season games with the Bills, he's one of the better special teams players in the league and his potential absence would be felt there.

Oct 15, 2021 4:17 PM EST

Active Sunday

Jones (hamstring) is active for Sunday night's game against the Chiefs.

Analysis: Jones has yet to play a snap on offense this season. The Bills will be happy to have him on special teams as usual, however.

Oct 10, 2021 3:59 PM EST

Questionable for Sunday

Jones (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday's Week 5 contest against the Chiefs, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

Analysis: Jones hasn't had much of a role in the Bills' offense this season, however, the running back has become one of the best special teams players on Buffalo. Expect the veteran to see a limited role if he is able to play against the Chiefs.

Oct 8, 2021 12:47 PM EST

DNP to start week

Jones did not practice Wednesday due to a hamstring injury.

Analysis: Jones doesn't have much impact in the offensive plan -- he's yet to take a snap on offense this season -- but he's one of the better special teams players in the league and the Bills will be looking for every edge they can get in what should be a challenging contest this week at Kansas City.

Oct 6, 2021 7:35 PM EST

Re-ups with AFC East champs

Jones re-signed with Buffalo on Thursday, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

Analysis: The veteran has almost no chance of seeing meaningful carries in 2021, but he's one of the league's better special teams men and the Bills have been happy to use up a roster spot with Jones in recent years. Jones has been in the league since 2011, and the next campaign with be his fourth with Buffalo.

Mar 18, 2021 12:08 PM EST

Scratched for season finale

Jones (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game versus the Dolphins.

Analysis: Jones is a healthy scratch, yielding a spot in the lineup to undrafted rookie Antonio Williams, who was elevated from the practice squad.

Jan 3, 2021 8:49 AM EST

Returns to full practice

Jones (hamstring) returned to full practice participation Friday, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

Analysis: Jones should be out there Monday against the 49ers, but he will likely remain limited to a special teams role with Devin Singletary, Zack Moss and T.J. Yeldon all healthy ahead of him.

Dec 4, 2020 11:00 AM EST

Limited Thursday

Jones (hamstring) was a limited participant for Thursday's practice session, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

Analysis: We'll see if the Bills are simply managing Jones' ongoing hamstring issues after he finally returned to action Week 12 against the Chargers, or if he aggravated something the last two days. For now, we'll assume he'll be ready to suit up Monday against the 49ers in his special teams ace role.

Dec 3, 2020 12:13 PM EST

Full participant Wednesday

Jones (hamstring) was a full practice participant Wednesday.

Analysis: The 32-year-old hasn't seen the field since Week 7 due to the hamstring injury, but it appears he's on track to return to game action this week. Jones has played only a couple snaps on offense this season and should return to his special-teams heavy role.

Nov 25, 2020 3:32 PM EST

Missing another week

Jones (hamstring) is ruled out for Sunday's game against the Cardinals.

Analysis: Jones is set to miss a third consecutive game due to his lingering hamstring injury. His absence will deprive Buffalo of a standout special-teams specialist against the Cardinals.

Nov 13, 2020 12:24 PM EST

Out for Week 9

Coach Sean McDermott said Friday that Jones (hamstring) won't play against the Seahawks on Sunday, Maddy Glab of the Bills' official site reports.

Analysis: Jones normally only contributes on special teams (he's handled just two offensive snaps this season), so his lack of availability won't noticeably impact Buffalo's backfield split. He is one of the Bills' better special teams specialists, though, so Jones' abilities will be missed in that capacity.
