Ronald Jones II
RB - TB
This Week Outlook
Buccaneers head coach Bruce Arians told the media he expects RB Ronald Jones II (quad) to be a game-time call on Sunday vs. the Saints.
Arians also said he expects Leonard Fournette to start either way, just like last weekend vs. Washington. Give Fournette a look in DFS even if Jones is active as it’s certainly possible he only suits up for emergency situations.
Ronald Jones II, who is dealing with a quad injury, was back at practice on Thursday per Tampa beat writer Rick Stroud.
This is a good sign for Jones II, who was absent from Wednesday's practice. It's unclear, as of now, if he was a full or limited participant on Thursday, though. The running back suffered a setback with his quad during pre-game warm ups against the Washington Football Team in the Wild Card round last weekend. It sounds as if he's trending in the right direction and he still has a few more days to get healthy before the Bucs take on the Saints on Sunday in the Divisional Round. If RoJo is unable to go, Tampa Bay will rely on Leonard Fournette as they did last Saturday against the Washington Football Team.
Buccaneers RB Ronald Jones II (quad) was not a participant in Wednesday's practice as reported by Kyle Burger.
Jones suffered a setback with his quad during pre-game warm ups against the Washington Football Team last weekend and continues to struggle with making a return. The Bucs don't play against the Saints until Sunday evening, which gives Jones an extra day to rehab and attempt suiting up for the divisional round. If Jones is ruled out of Sunday's contest, the Bucs should feel confident relying on Leonard Fournette as the starter based on the 132 total yards and touchdown he generated in their 31-23 win over Washington in the Wild Card round.
Buccaneers RB Ronald Jones II (quad) suffered a swollen quadriceps which kept him out of Saturday's 31-23 win over the Washington Football Team. His status for the divisional round is "to be determined" as reported by Ian Rapoport.
The Bucs relied on Leonard Fournette in Jones' absence during Saturday's win against Washington, with the back-up totaling 132 yards and a touchdown in an impressive performance. If Jones is unable to get cleared to return from his quad injury, the Buccaneers should feel confident with Fournette leading the backfield and rookie Ke'Shawn Vaughn relieving him as the team prepares for their divisional matchup next weekend.
Buccaneers RB Ronald Jones II (quad) is questionable to return Saturday night vs. Washington.
Jones must have injured himself prior to the game as he didn’t receive a single carry or target before being ruled questionable for the remainder of the game. Leonard Fournette and Ke’Shawn Vaughn will lead the way out of the backfield for the Buccaneers.
