According to Marcel Louis-Jacques of ESPN NFL Nation, the Miami Dolphins have not opened CB Byron Jones' 21-day window to return to practice, keeping him on IR for a while longer. (Marcel Louis-Jacques on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact:

Coach Mike McDaniel said that Jones' Achilles recovery has not "progressed as fast as [they'd] hoped," meaning Jones will stay on the Dolphins' injured reserve for an undetermined amount of time. While Jones' absence will continue to keep back Miami's defense, they've kept three of their four opponents under 20 points this season, so confidence can still be had in the unit.
