Bucs HC Bruce Arians was non-committal on Monday when asked about RB Ronald Jones' status for Sunday's Divisional Round game vs. the Saints. Jones ended up missing last weekend's game in Washington after he didn't feel like he could "open up" in warmups, according to Arians. Jones was on last week's injury report with the quad but was a full participant in all 3 practices. We'll monitor his participation this week. With Jones out last week, Leonard Fournette handled 19 of 24 RB carries and 4 of 5 RB targets.
Bucs RB Ronald Jones (quad, finger) is active for tonight's game against the Saints. HC Bruce Arians said earlier this week that RB Leonard Fournette would get the start regardless of Jones' status, making Fournette the better fantasy bet.
Bucs RB Ronald Jones (quad, finger) has "a good shot to play" vs. the Saints today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Jones participated in Saturday's walkthrough, although a final decision on his availability won't come until he gets to the stadium today. We'll find out whether Jones is active around 5 pm ET. HC Bruce Arians said earlier this week that RB Leonard Fournette will get the start regardless of Jones' status.
Bucs HC Bruce Arians labeled RB Ronald Jones (quad, finger) a game-time decision for Sunday's Divisional Round tilt vs the Saints. Arians added that RB Leonard Fournette will get the start regardless of Jones' status. That obviously doesn't guarantee that Fournette will end up leading the backfield in touches, but he's coming off a nice performance in last week's win and is the healthier of the 2 backs. Fournette looks like the better fantasy play this weekend.
Bucs RB Ronald Jones (quad, finger) returned to a limited practice on Thursday. We'll see what he does on Friday and how he's listed on the final injury report for Sunday's game vs. the Saints.
