Week 17 Outlook
Jaguars CB Sidney Jones (Achilles) is officially inactive in Week 11 vs. the Steelers.
The Jaguars will be without their top two cornerbacks on Sunday, Jones and C.J. Henderson, against a great Steelers passing attack. Fire up all your Steelers WRs with confidence in Week 11.
The Philadelphia Eagles are releasing former second round pick CB Sidney Jones.
Jones was a 2nd round pick in 2017 out of Washington with a lot of potential. He’s battled injuries throughout his three-year career in Philadelphia and has only played 22 games as a result. A disappointing career thus far, but hopefully this will be the push he needs to reinvent his career with another team. With Darius Slay and Nickell Robey-Coleman now in town, Jones simply became expendable.
Eagles coach Doug Pederson said Friday that second-year cornerback Sidney Jones is considered week-to-week with a hamstring injury.
Jones left Thursday night’s victory over the Giants after injuring his hamstring in the first half. He was unable to return. Jones had one tackle before the early exit. He was replaced by Avonte Maddox in the slot, with Rasul Douglas at safety. The extra three days of rest will surely help, but his Week 7 outlook is looking dim at this time.

Cornerback Sidney Jones gave Eagles fans quite the scare when he remained down, holding his left foot, after a second-quarter tackle in Philadelphia’s preseason opener Thursday. He told reporters after the game he suffered a minor ankle injury but is okay.
Jones was injured when he was run into by linebacker Nate Gerry as the two assisted on a tackle. After several minutes on the examination table, Jones tested out the foot and had his ankle re-taped. He never returned to the field, but did appear able. Jones took all of his snaps in the slot, where he’s been getting most of his work in training camp.
