Taiwan Jones | Texans RB

The Texans have signed Taiwan Jones.

With the Bills last season, Jones was placed on injured reserve with a neck injury at the end of October. But he was named a team captain for his special-teams contributions, so he should be a great addition on the third unit for the Texans in 2019. Jones has had just two offensive touches the last three seasons, so he's unlikely to make a big fantasy impact this season.

Taiwan Jones (neck) has been ruled out for Week 7.

Jones is week-to-week with a neck injury, so hopefully he's feeling better soon. He is off the fantasy radar as more of a real-life contributor to the Bills than a stat compiler.

Taiwan Jones does not have a concussion.

This is great to hear, as Jones left yesterday's game with a head injury. He'll be ready to go for Sunday against the Vikings, and the Bills might need him to chip in more on offense if LeSean McCoy (ribs) is out. Jones would not be a recommended fantasy option, though.

Taiwan Jones (head) is questionable to return against the Chargers.

Jones is mostly a special-teams contributor for the Bills, but we'll updates you as more information becomes available.

The Bills re-signed running back Taiwan Jones.

The Jones signing comes along with the signing of fellow running back Travaris Cadet. Jones is coming off a broken arm and should be fine for offseason training. Last season, he didn't get much work on offense when he joined the Bills, but he is a key special teams player. Buffalo seems likely to keep four running backs on the final roster in 2018.

Taiwan Jones is out for the season with a broken arm.

Jones was not getting much work on offense, but he was a key special teams player for the Bills, so this is a big loss for a playoff-contending team. The 29-year-old running back had one carry for 11 yards this season, and his contract is up after the year. He should get interest somewhere, if not from Buffalo, and be back on the field in 2018.

Taiwan Jones catches clutch pass in Week 7 win.

It was an 11-yard pass to help make for an easier game-winning field goal by Steven Hauschka, and Jones' only touch of the game. He's not a fantasy option, though he does face his former team in next week's matchup with the Raiders.

The Bills have signed running back Taiwan Jones.

Jones spent the first six years of his career with Oakland, averaging 4.2 yards per attempt on 44 carries. He was mostly a solid special teams player with the Raiders, and his only carry last season went for negative-eight yards. Buffalo doesn't have great depth behind LeSean McCoy, but Jones is unlikely to be a fantasy contributor with 61 career touches.
