Here’s the Saints updated practice squad:

  1. WR Kawaan Baker
  2. DT Josiah Bronson
  3. DB KeiVarae Russell
  4. WR Kevin White
  5. WR Easop Winston
  6. TE Ethan Wolf
  7. G Derrick Kelly
  8. DB Dylan Mabin
  9. OT Caleb Benenoch
  10. WR Kenny Stills
  11. FB Adam Prentice
  12. LB Wynton McManis
  13. DB Jordan Miller
  14. OT Jordan Mills
  15. DB Bryce Thompson
  16. RB Ryquell Armstead 

Jones is expected to miss 3-4 weeks with an ankle injury so this makes sense for New Orleans. 

Jones, 23, went undrafted out of Notre Dame in 2020 and caught on with the Saints. He was waived during final roster cuts but brought back to the practice squad the following day.

He later signed a futures deal with the Saints and made the 53-man roster heading into the 2021 NFL season.

In 2021, Jones has appeared in four games for the Saints, rushing 16 times for 69 yards.
