Colts Place DL Arthur Jones On Season-Ending I.R.



Ian Rapoport reports that the Colts are, in fact, placing DL Arthur Jones on season-ending injured reserve, as they get their roster down to 53 players.


Jason La Canfora mentions that he would be “shocked” if Colts DL Arthur Jones wasn’t placed on season-ending injured reserve in the coming days.

Jones is reportedly undergoing surgery on his injured ankle today, but La Canfora expects him to be good to go for the 2016 season.

This is bad news for the Colts’ defensive line, as he was signed to solidify their defensive front in the coming years.

Jones, 29, is in the second year of his five-year, $33 million contract that included a $16 million guaranteed. He stands to make base salaries of $6 million (2015), $4.5 million (2016), $6.25 million (2017) and  $6.25 million (2018) over the remainder of the contract.

In 2014, Jones appeared in nine games for the Colts and recorded 23 tackles, 1.5 sacks, and a forced fumble. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 62 defensive end in a 3-4 out of 83 qualifying players.

We’ll have more regarding Jones as the news is available.
