The Buccaneers have not stated whether or not Jones will be available and active this Sunday versus the Atlanta Falcons. Jones is still recovering from a broken pinkie finger on his left hand that he suffered during the week 14 matchup versus the Minnesota Vikings. Don’t had a pin inserted into his hand during the surgery.
The Buccaneers have made it clear that they will not be resting their starters during the week 17 matchup versus the Atlanta Falcons. If Jones cannot start he will most likely be replaced by Leonard Fournette, who replaced Jones the last two weeks in the starting lineup.
Ronald Jones has stacked up a 5 yard per carry rushing average in 2020 with a total of 900 yards. Jones would need 100 more yards to reach the 1000 yard benchmark for the season.
