The Miami Dolphins moved Byron Jones to the PUP list on Tuesday due to leg surgery, meaning he will be out for at least the first four games of the season. (Tom Pelissero on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact:

This is a bit of a surprise, as head coach Mike McDaniel was originally optimistic for Jones to be back by Week 1. The cornerback was slotted to be the starter alongside Xavien Howard, so Miami will have to find a new CB2 before Week 1. Nik Needham and Keion Crossen are some players that may step into that role, but this is a huge loss for the Dolphins' secondary.
