Tony Jones Jr. - Stepping up in practice Jones is competing with Devine Ozigbo, Abram Smith and Dwayne Washington for a roster spot as a backup running back, Luke Johnson of nola.com reports.
Impact The third-year back has impressed thus far throughout training camp by gashing the Saints' defense for multiple nice runs, which is especially notable given he sits on the roster bubble. If Jones can continue catching the coaching staff's eye, the 5-foot-11, 224-pound back could carve out a rotational role alongside Mark Ingram and the recently acquired Malcolm Brown. However, all reserve running backs could receive a heavier workload depending on how Alvin Kamara's legal situation plays out.
