Jones (calf) is ruled out for Sunday's game against the Cowboys, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.
Jones will miss a second consecutive game due to the ankle injury he suffered Week 1 versus Baltimore. Having traded Minkah Fitzpatrick to the Steelers earlier in the week, the Dolphins will now rely on Doug Middleton, Walt Aikens and Steven Parker as their top safeties Week 3.
Jones (ankle) didn't participate in Wednesday's practice, but coach Brian Flores said he's "close" to returning, Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com reports.
Even if Jones returns to practice in some capacity like Flores says, it's no guarantee that he'll be ready for Sunday's game versus the Cowboys. Jones will have more opportunities when he's healthy since Minkah Fitzpatrick was traded to Pittsburgh. The Dolphins also signed Doug Middleton to add depth at the safety position, and Middleton likely will see a respectable snap count if Jones can't go.
Jones will miss Sunday's Week 2 matchup with New England due to an ankle injury, Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.
Jones wasn't able to practice in any capacity this week. The 31-year-old sustained the injury during Miami's season-opening loss to Baltimore, in which he managed to play 32 defensive snaps and record five total tackles. Jones was splitting work at free safety with Minkah Fitzpatrick when healthy, so it seems that Fitzpatrick will take on an every-down role in Sunday's contest.
Jones (ankle) did not practice Wednesday, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.
Jones appears to have picked up an ankle injury during Sunday's season-opening loss to the Ravens, during which he played 32 snaps on defense and recorded five tackles (four solo). The veteran safety appears to be splitting snaps with Minkah Fitzpatrick rather than playing his usual every-down role, depleting his value in IDP formats even when healthy.
