It’s worth mentioning that the NFL changed the rules regarding injured reserve for the 2020 season and players can return from the list in just three weeks.
Jones, 26, was a second-round pick by the Packers out of North Carolina State in 2017. He was entering the third year of a four-year, $4.2 million deal when Green Bay waived Jones with a non-football illness last year.
Jones passed through waivers unclaimed and signed on to the Cowboys’ practice squad before being called up in November. He was waived a few weeks later and claimed by the Jaguars.
In 2020, Jones has appeared in eight games for the Jaguars and recorded 61 tackles and no interceptions or passes defended.
