Jones has missed the last two weeks with the injury and just had his walking boot removed. Jones has not yet begun to run, which means he could be a few more weeks away from returning to action.
In the absence of Jones, 2011 third-round pick DeMarco Murray has emerged as the team's leading rushing, carrying the ball 33 times for 327 yards and a touchdown in the last two games, with most of that production coming in a Week 7 win over the St. Louis Rams. Murray is expected to start on Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks, who have the NFL's 11th-ranked run defense and are allowing the fewest amount of rushing yards per play this season.
Rookie Phillip Tanner will be the No. 2 back behind Murray.
