The Chiefs are re-signing RB Jerick McKinnon to a 1-year deal, ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports. We'll see what kind of money is involved here, but it's at least noteworthy that Kansas City let McKinnon toil on the open market for about 3 months. McKinnon came up big for the Chiefs in the playoffs, carrying 34 times for 150 yards and catching 14 of 17 targets for 165 yards and a score. RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire was limited during that stretch coming off a shoulder injury, though. And McKinnon totaled just 12 carries and 20 targets during the regular season. We'll see how this backfield shakes out this summer between Edwards-Helaire, McKinnon and Ronald Jones.

Chiefs HC Andy Reid called RBs Clyde Edwards-Helaire and Ronald Jones a "good combo." Added Reid of Jones, “He’s a tough runner with good vision. I’ll take that, and he needs that opportunity to feel like he’s a major part of this thing. We’ll give him that." It sure sounds like the Chiefs view Jones as real competition for CEH, rather than an insurance policy. This will be 1 of the more important backfields to monitor this summer.

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports that the Chiefs "plan to" sign RB Ronald Jones to a 1-year deal worth "up to" $5 million. We'll see how attainable those incentives look once the contract is finalized. We all knew Kansas City would be in the market for at least 1 RB after the team let Darrel Williams and Jerick McKinnon reach unrestricted free agency. The Chiefs reportedly negotiated with Williams before the start of free agency. We'd still bet on Clyde Edwards-Helaire leading this backfield in touches. Jones has flashed some rushing skills over his 4 seasons, but he saw a 3-year low in carries (101 in 16 games) last season and garnered only 13 targets. He looks interesting in mid-to-low RB4 range for now. We'll see whether K.C. is done adding to its stable.

The Buccaneers have ruled out RB Ronald Jones (ankle) and WR Breshad Perriman (hip, abdomen) for Sunday’s game against the Rams. Perriman’s absence will leave opportunity for WR Cyril Grayson, if he’s able to play. Grayson is questionable with a hamstring injury that allowed him just 1 limited practice this week. Tampa also has WR Scotty Miller behind Mike Evans and Tyler Johnson.

Bucs RB Ronald Jones (ankle) remained sidelined on Wednesday. That doesn't bode well for his chances of returning for this weekend's Divisional Round game vs. the Rams. We'll see if Tampa gets RB Leonard Fournette back from his hamstring injury.

Bucs RB Ronald Jones (ankle) is out for Sunday’s game vs. the Panthers. With RB Leonard Fournette still on IR with his hamstring injury, Tampa is down to RBs Ke’Shawn Vaughn and Le’Veon Bell. We’re expecting a committee attack, with Vaughn leading in carries and Bell in targets.

Bucs RB Ronald Jones (ankle) did not practice on Wednesday. RB Ke'Shawn Vaughn (ribs) was a full-go. It's looking like we'll get a Vaughn and Le'Veon Bell Bucs backfield vs. the Panthers this weekend.

Bucs RB Ronald Jones hurt his ankle in the 3rd quarter of Sunday's game vs. the Jets and is officially questionable to return. We'll update his status when we know more.

Bucs RB Leonard Fournette (hamstring) has been placed on IR. This knocks him out for the rest of the regular season, so Fournette can be dropped from all redraft rosters. The Bucs are hoping to get Fournette back for the playoffs. Ronald Jones looks like a borderline RB1 the next 3 weeks vs. the Panthers, Jets and Panthers again.

7:05pm EST 12/21/21

The Bucs are set to sign RB Le'Veon Bell, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports. Bell appeared in 5 games for the Ravens earlier this season -- and looked washed up, mustering just 2.7 yards per carry. The Bucs are expected to be without RB Leonard Fournette (hamstring) for the rest of the regular season, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter, so Bell provides some depth. He might immediately slot in ahead of RB Ke'Shawn Vaughn. But Bell isn't a threat to RB Ronald Jones and won't be a fantasy option without a Jones injury.

Bucs RB Leonard Fournette's hamstring injury is not "major," according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, but he could miss "a game or two." It sounds like we should at least expect Fournette to miss this weekend's game vs. the Panthers. We'll see if he can make it back for Week 17's tilt with the Jets. Ronald Jones will operate as Tampa's clear lead ball-carrier for however long Fournette is out, but it's worth noting that he lost some passing-down to RB Ke'Shawn Vaughn in the loss to the Saints.

Bucs RB Leonard Fournette suffered a hamstring injury in the 3rd quarter of Sunday night's game vs. the Saints and was quickly ruled out. Ronald Jones will step in as Tampa's lead back. We'll update Fournette's injury when we know more.

Bucs RB Leonard Fournette (ankle) missed his 2nd straight practice on Thursday. It's officially time to worry about his Week 15 status. We'll see if Fournette practices tomorrow and then how he's listed on the final injury report. His absence would make Ronald Jones a borderline RB1, despite a matchup vs. the Saints' top-ranked RB defense.

Bucs RB Leonard Fournette (ankle) did not practice on Wednesday. He seemed to make it out of last week's overtime win over the Bills just fine, and we haven't heard anything to suggest that Fournette is in danger of missing Sunday night's game vs. the Saints. He can stay penciled into fantasy lineups for now. But Fournette owners would be wise to roster RB Ronald Jones as insurance.

Bucs RB Leonard Fournette will start today's game vs. the Rams, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The title of "starter" doesn't mean much, as Ronald Jones can attest. Jones got the start last week and ended up carrying just 6 times. But we were already expecting Fournette to operate as Tampa's lead back today, and this news only helps his Week 3 outlook. Per Rapoport, Jones has had a "frustrating couple of weeks, including 1 play last week that drew the ire of the coaches when he went out of bounds right before the 1st-down marker."

Bucs HC Bruce Arians says RB Ronald Jones' "play isn't as good as it should be." After losing a fumble in the opener, Jones blew a blitz pick up and got QB Tom Brady sacked in Week 2. "He’s got to get out of those types of situations," Arians added. "I thought he ran hard and protected the ball, but again, you can’t have those mental errors. … It’s just attention to detail, like missing that blitz." Jones has just 10 carries and 3 targets through 2 weeks and is impossible to trust in fantasy lineups. Don't be surprised if RB Leonard Fournette's role continues to grow.

Bucs RB Ronald Jones will start Sunday's game against the Falcons, HC Bruce Arians said Tuesday. It feels like an olive branch after Jones was benched for his 2nd-quarter fumble in the opener. "Starting," of course, just means that Jones will be on the field for the 1st play of the game. It doesn't tell us anything about how big a role he'll play. This still figures to be a 3-man committee, with Jones and Leonard Fournette playing on early downs and Gio Bernard in passing situations.

Bucs RB Gio Bernard is dealing with a "mild" high-ankle sprain, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports. Pelissero adds that Bernard is expected to be ready for the season opener vs. Dallas. But this would need to be an extremely mild high-ankle sprain for that to be the case. We'll keep an eye on Bernard's status. His absence would open up passing game work for RB Leonard Fournette (and maybe a bit for RB Ronald Jones.
