He was the leading tackler on the team last season and was almost the leading tackler yet again this season (2nd) but will now be rehabbing a torn rotator cuff.
To try to fill his absence on the field will be Michael Thomas and Walt Aikens who get handed the task of trying to slow down/stop LeSean McCoy next week. Good luck with that.
Jones was Pro Football Focus’ No. 3 safety last season and made it to the Pro Bowl as a fill in what should have been an outright selection from the stats he put up. He was rated yet again PFF’s No. 3 safety this season but unfortunately for him the season will come to a close.
This last game he was run over by Steelers Darrius Heyward-Bey on a 60 yard end around run play on a weird angle to his shoulder but bounced right up after the play and continued to play the whole game as well as make a post game media appearance with no sign of injury.
