Chandler Jones will not play Sunday

Cardinals edge rusher Chandler Jones returned to the team facility Friday after passing COVID-19 protocols. The team, though, did not activate Jones from the COVID-19 reserve list Saturday, so he will not play Sunday.

Jones last played Oct. 10 against the 49ers, two days before he tested positive for COVID-19.

Jones has five sacks, all of which came in the season opener against the Titans, nine tackles and two forced fumbles.

The Cardinals promoted four practice squad players. Defensive lineman Josh Mauro, who signed this week, is a standard elevation, while linebacker Joe Walker, offensive lineman Danny Isidora and tight end Ross Travis all were COVID replacements.

Defensive linemen Corey Peters and Zach Allen, like Jones, remain on the COVID-19 reserve list.

  1. Tough at this point to not want to just flush this season down the toilet. Need our starters playing and maybe a few superstars to help. Mac doing great for a rookie though and this season gets him the experience he needs.

  2. Not a big deal. AZ has excellent depth at EDGE/OLB. I’d rather let Jones get back into game shape for a much more important n tougher game against GB coming up next Sunday. Hopefully both Zac Allen n Corey Peters can go TMRW.
