  • Broncos' D.J. Jones: Ruled out for Week 18

    Jones (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's matchup against the Chargers, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports.

    Jones will miss back-to-back games to end the 2022 campaign due to a knee injury. Mike Purcell (elbow) and Eyioma Uwazurike are candidates for increased roles in Jones' absence. Jones will end his first season in Denver with 34 tackles, six pass defenses and two sacks across 15 appearances.

  • Broncos' D.J. Jones: Sidelined on New Year's Day

    Jones (knee) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Chiefs.

    Jones will now miss his first matchup of the 2022-23 campaign as a result of the knee injury. In his absence, Mike Purcell should handle a larger role at nose tackle this weekend, while Eyioma Uwazurike is slated to receive more rotational snaps on Denver's defensive line.

  • Broncos' D.J. Jones: Questionable to play versus KC

    Jones (knee) is considered questionable for Sunday's game against the Chiefs.

    Jones was sidelined for first the two practices of Week 17 with a knee injury, though it's unclear when or how this issue first arose. The 27-year-old nose tackle was able to increase his participation with a limited session Friday, so he'll still have a chance to suit up for Sunday's divisional matchup. Jones has recorded 34 tackles, two sacks and a career-high six passes defended over 15 games this season, and his potential absence would leave Eyioma Uwazurike to assume a bigger role behind presumptive starting nose tackle Mike Purcell.

  • Broncos' D.J. Jones: Available Sunday

    Jones (shoulder/illness) has been deemed active for Sunday's game against the Cardinals.

    Jones has recently dealt with shoulder discomfort that limited him to a season-low 16 defensive snaps last week against Kansas City. He also sat out practice Friday with an illness, but the nose tackle is nonetheless set to make his 14th appearance of the season. However, Jones will likely slot in behind Mike Purcell and DeShawn Williams during Week 15.

  • Broncos' D.J. Jones: Practicing Friday

    Jones (shoulder) is available for practice Friday, Zac Stevens of TheDNVR.com reports.

    Jones made his return to practice Friday after being unavailable for each of the Broncos' first two sessions of the week, making it likely that he plays Sunday versus the Chiefs. His status is still worth monitoring, and if he's held out, DeShawn Williams would likely take over at starting nose tackle.

  • Broncos' D.J. Jones: Won't practice Thursday

    Jones (shoulder) was a non-participant in practice Thursday, Parker Gabriel of The Denver Post reports.

    Gabriel notes that according to head coach Nathanial Hackett, Jones is dealing with "discomfort," which is being managed. Although listed questionable for Sunday's game with the Chiefs, it appears that Jones' DNP is more precautionary than a sign of legitimate concern about his potential availability. However, if he were to sit, DeShawn Williams and Mike Purcell would likely see more prominent roles against Kansas City.
