Jacoby Jones' tenure in San Diego is over after just eight games.

It was certainly an unceremonious one. The once-dynamic Jones tallied -4 punt return yards and couldn't haul in a single reception. He was released on Tuesday.

That's not exactly the kind of production the team had in mind when they forked over a two-year, $5.5 million deal to Jones this spring. But the 31-year-old punt returner suffered a high ankle sprain that sapped him of the explosive ability he showed as a Baltimore Raven.

Javontee Hendon, a former practice-squad player, is expected to assume punt return duties now.
