News: Jones tweaked his ankle during Monday's practice, Paul Dehner of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Impact: Jones has already missed three games this season with a foot injury, but it appears this new ailment is not directly related. He was originally targeting a Week 5 return against the Patriots, but this recent development may put that notion in question. Jones' practice participation is surely something worth monitoring, especially for fantasy owners hoping to have the Bengals' No. 2 wideout in their lineups this week.
News: Burfict (concussion) did not practice Wednesday, Cincinnati.com reports.
Impact: Burfict missed the Bengals' most recent game, after suffering his second concussion of the season in Week 2 against the Falcons. While he didn't practice Wednesday, Burfict reportedly did take part in Cincinnati's stretching prior to practice, which indicates he has been cleared for light exercise. Nonetheless, it's unclear if Burfict has been given the green light for more rigorous activities, putting his status for Sunday's game versus the Patriots in question.
News: Jones (foot) did not practice Wednesday, Cincinnati.com reports.
Impact: Jones participated in the Bengals' only practice during their Week 4 bye and also suited up Monday, which pointed toward the wideout returning from the broken foot that has sidelined him to this point in the season. However, given his absence Wednesday, the reason for Jones not practicing is curious. Previously expected to play this Sunday against the Patriots, Jones' Week 5 status is now fairly unclear, and an update regarding his situation should be forthcoming.
