However, the corner says he feels “really good” as he returned to Dolphins practice.
He also didn’t rule out a return to the field this week.
“Today was a really good challenge,” Jones said. “And tomorrow is going to be a bigger challenge. As you go on, you continue to push yourself and gain confidence. You start at 50 percent, then you go to 65 percent, then 75 percent. It’s just about the workload, the speed, how the recovery is and how I feel the next day. But I’d say we’re on a good track.”
The University of Connecticut product is also dealing with an Achilles injury, but he said that it is not related to his groin.
“Not at all,” he said. “That wasn’t a conversation. Not at all. Groin muscles are a weird, finicky thing. They come and they go. I’ve had hamstrings in the past. Never really had a groin like that. Just part of ball. If you play long enough, you’re going to get hurt.”
Jones will definitely be needed in Week 4 as the Dolphins face an extremely high-powered Seattle Seahawks offense.
“I feel really good,” Jones said. “Rehab has been on schedule, which is great. Honestly, it’s day by day. I felt really good today so we’ll see where we’re at.”
Led by Russell Wilson, Seattle has jumped out to a 3-0 start this year.
Jones signed a massive deal with the Dolphins this offseason, but he has yet to get a chance to prove his worth on the field because of the injuries.
