Washington should have Matt Jones back in time for its Week 1 clash with the Pittsburgh Steelers. Jones practiced Tuesday without his non-contact jersey, according to Washington Post reporter Mike Jones.
Jones is recovering from a shoulder injury suffered in Washington's second preseason game. That sidelined him for the next two weeks before he returned to practice Monday, but wore a non-contact jersey. The fact he shed it just a day later suggests Jones is on track to start next Monday's game against Pittsburgh.
Fantasy Spin: Jones is expected to be Washington's workhorse back this year, but his rookie inconsistencies and preseason injury have his fantasy stock low entering the season.
Keep Jones on your bench this week.
