Ronald Jones Adds More Hardware For 2020 Bucs


Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Ronald Jones has won the FedEx Ground Player of the Week award for week 10 of the 2020 NFL season. Jones became the fourth running back in Buccaneer history to be named FedEx Ground Player of the week. LeGarrette Blount, Doug Martin and Bobby Rainey also earned the honor previously.

Jones had a career day rushing for 192 yards including the longest run in team history, a 98 yard burst off left tackle Sunday. The Panthers struggled to contain Jones all day. Ronald Jones now sits at second in the league among runners with at least 100 carries with a 5.1 yard average. He is third in rushing yards with 730.

Jones joins Tom Brady, winner of FedEx Air Player of the week in week 4. This is the first time since 2015 that the Bucs have had winners in both the FedEx Air and Ground categories in the same season.

This has been a season of superlatives for Tampa Bay as Ronald Jones adds more hardware for 2020 Bucs. Jones joins Shaq Barrett (week 3) and Devin White (week 7), who won Defensive Players of the Week. Linebacker Lavonte David also was named Defensive Player of the Month for September. Safety Antoinne Winfield also won the September Defensive Rookie of the Month award.
