As expected, Washington released RB Matt Jones on Saturday. The former 3rd-round pick opened last season as the lead back but fell out of favor largely because of fumble issues. He stayed fairly invisible through training camp and the preseason this summer. The 24-year-old should quickly get a shot elsewhere, though.
Per multiple reports, the Colts have claimed RB Matt Jones off waivers. Washington cut the RB on Saturday. He'll start out behind Frank Gore, Robert Turbin and Marlon Mack on Indy's backfield depth chart. Jones isn't a redraft option but remains worth a deep stash in dynasty leagues. He's still just 24.
Redskins RB Matt Jones is inactive for today's game against the Vikings. He wasn't listed on the final injury report, so he looks like a healthy scratch. RB Mack Brown is active behind RBs Rob Kelley and Chris Thompson. Jones looks droppable in most fantasy leagues.
Redskins RB Matt Jones (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Bengals. HC Jay Gruden said earlier in the week that rookie Rob Kelley will step in as Washington's lead back. He'll lose some carries and most of the passing-down work to RB Chris Thompson, though. Kelley is the slightly better play in non-PPR leagues; Thompson gets the edge in PPR.
Redskins RB Matt Jones (knee) missed his 2nd straight practice on Thursday. He's looking iffy for this weekend's game against the Bengals. Jones' absence would leave Rob Kelley as Washington's lead back. RB Chris Thompson would also figure to see more work than usual.
Redskins RB Matt Jones was held out of Wednesday's practice with what HC Jay Gruden described as "knee soreness." We'll see if he's able to get back on the field Thursday before Washington heads to London. If Jones misses Sunday's game against the Bengals, RBs Chris Thompson and Rob Kelley would share the backfield.
