The Indianapolis Colts waived veteran running back Matt Jones and six other players. Jones played just nine snaps for Indianapolis in 2017, totaling 14 rushing yards on five attempts. (Adam Schefter on twitter )

Fantasy Impact:

Jones was drafted in the third round of the 2015 NFL Draft by the Redskins and showed some promise as a rookie, rushing for just under 500 yards, catching 19 passes and scoring four touchdowns. Jones was never really able to gain any traction with the Colts and after the club added Nyheim Hines and Jordan Wilkins to compete with Marlon Mack, Robert Turbin, and Christine Michael, there was no room left for the 25-year-old veteran. Jones should get a camp invite but is irrelevant in fantasy leagues.
