Byron Jones remaining on IR, not progressing as hoped

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.

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.

Byron Jones (leg) moved to PUP list, will miss at least four weeks

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.

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.

Byron Jones (groin/Achilles) doubtful for Week 4

Dolphins CB Byron Jones (groin/Achilles) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's Week 4 matchup with the Seahawks.

Fantasy Impact

In other words, expect Russ to keep cooking. Jones' absence is a boost for Seattle's pass catchers, mainly DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett. This will be the second straight game that Jones has missed.
