Bucs activate RB Jones from virus list

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers activated running back Ronald Jones II from the reserve/COVID-19 list on Tuesday, according to the team.

Jones missed the last two contests for the Bucs, while Leonard Fournette took over lead-back duties for the playoff-bound Bucs.

Jones will likely slot right back into the workhorse role for Tampa Bay (10-5) in Week 17 in a matchup against the Atlanta Falcons if the finger he fractured in Week 14 has healed.

“I’ve got my fingers crossed that we can get him a bunch of game action this week,” said coach Bruce Arians, “but I’m not going to risk it (if he is) not able to protect himself.”

The 23-year-old has rushed 180 times for a career-high 900 yards to go along with six touchdowns this season.
