Miami decided this week that they would not be using Jones in the first-round playoff game against the Steelers, Barry Jackson of The Miami Herald writes. It’s possible that Jones reacted poorly to that news, because the Dolphins have decided they do not want to have Jones around at all. Jones, 30, appeared in ten Dolphins games this season. He posted 2.5 sacks, 23 tackles, and a fumble recovery. With Jones out, Mario Williams will play Sunday against Pittsburgh.

Meanwhile, in another surprising development, quarterback Ryan Tannehill returned to practice today. Previous reports indicated that Tannehill would definitely not play this weekend, but today’s news could open the door slightly to that possibility. At minimum, it’s a promising sign for his availability going forward, should Miami win this weekend.

    Hmm, Cowboys need a DE, wonder if he’s the “right kinda guy”? They don’t need another “kraken” situation. Go Cowboys

      He was suspended this year so he’s definitely a Cowboys type

    Patriots will pick him up if the Dolphins beat Pittsburgh. Keep him for a week, pump him for info, then cut him. They don’t mind signing bad dudes either.

      True. That’s less of an advantage with division opponents though, as you’re already more familiar with the teams, and it’s the Dolphins, so they can basically sleep walk through the game anyway.
