Dolphins place Byron Jones on reserve/PUP list

Earlier this month, Dolphins head coach Mike McDaniel said the team was still “extremely hopeful” cornerback Byron Jones would be able to play Week One.

As it turns out, that will not happen.

Jones will be out for at least Miami’s first four games in 2022 as the Dolphins placed him on the reserve/physically unable to perform list on Tuesday.

Jones underwent offseason leg surgery in March. Jones had progressed to some change-of-direction movements while working on the side. But he apparently is not ready to progress to practicing with the team as the regular season begins.

A first-round pick in 2015, Jones has been with the Dolphins since signing with the team as a free agent in 2020. He started 16 games last year, recording 10 passes defensed and a forced fumble.

The Dolphins face the Patriots, Ravens, Bills, and Bengals in the first four weeks of the season.

Additionally, the Dolphins announced they’ve placed linebacker Brennan Scarlett on injured reserve. And the team has waived receiver Lynn Bowden Jr., tackle Larnel Coleman, receiver River Cracraft, offensive lineman Kellen Diesch, linebacker Cameron Goode, linebacker Porter Gustin, defensive tackle Benito Jones, offensive lineman Solomon Kindley, safety Verone McKinley III, receiver Braylon Sanders, tackle Kion Smith, defensive tackle Ben Stille, and receiver Preston Williams.

  1. For the money this is stealing, he has been a bust FA signing. Thanks for nothing Flores!

  2. There is no excuse to not be ready for the season when you are paid that type of money.
    He should of had that surgery well beforehand. Unacceptable!!

    with what QB and receivers? lol

  5. Reminder: In 2022, with a rookie QB and new key offensive players Henry, Smith, Bourne, Agholor & Stephenson the NE Patriots scored the 6th most points in the NFL.

    NFL fans: expect to (once again) be terrorized in 2023.

    Just like they did the Raiders backups. Oh wait.

  7. Two years ago Miami knew they had a problem at corner,they were getting older and Howard had injury issues. They did very little to address that problem. The most notable thing they did was draft Igbonigen,or however you spell it. He’s been a bust! Everything else has been trying to develop late round drafted talent and undrafted talent. Earlier today there was an experienced player available in a trade. Did we try to get a deal done for that player. No! So our corners are old and inexperienced and we’ll start the season with several backups against the Patriots,Ravens,Bills and whoever we play week four. Can someone explain what a priority list is to the Miami Dolphins please. Every year our biggest needs are offensive line and corner,but Miami can’t figure it out.

    I’m really looking forward to the two games between Phins and Pats this year. Something tells me neither game will be a blowout. Having Flores the last few times helped the Dolphins – now he’s gone. The loss of the old OC will hurt the Pats. With the spread at only 2.5, we may be in for some exciting ball.

    I think your confused by which team is the Pats and which team is the Dolphins.

    The Pats lost JC Jackson, the Dolphins still have Xavien Howard and added Tyreek Hill.

    The beating is still on, it just won’t be AS bad. But make no mistake about it, New England is getting destroyed.

  10. 2-2 after 4 games. Phins wont need him for Patsies and Ravens but cant see Tua keeping up against Bills and Bengals.

    *********************************************

    NE moved on from JC Jackson but gained Jonathan Jones — the league’s premier slot corner — who blanketed your shiny new addition to the tune of 1 catch in the 2018 AFC Championship Game in KC.

    The bigger question: Who gets Sean Payton — Miami or Dallas?

  12. To the delusional pats fans that replied to this post…. you’ve heard of Xavien Howard right?You know, probably the best CG in the league? How about Brandon Jones? There’s someone else you’ll be getting to know soon.. Jevon Holland (possibly the best safety in the NFL no one’s heard of yet)…. but that won’t matter when that Dolphins front 4 is your face the entire game anyway.

    Make no mistake about it, but when your rookie coach stumbles to a bad record in Sept, starting by losing to NE, you’ll be nowhere to be seen.

    Your cheating team thinks it can brazenly cheat and barely be punished, but it’s been noted in NE.

    Brian Flores is gone and Diva Hill will be blanketed all game long.

  14. Funny how last year Mac Jones could do no wrong while Tua could do nothing right. Well time for Tua to put on his “Big Boy” pants.

  15. It’s funny how touchback6 calls the Dolphins a cheating team. You can’t make this stuff up lol. Momma always told me don’t throw rocks when you live in a glass house or Joe Judge is in charge of your offense. TB6 seems to have a bit of envy for the Bills and Fins, it’s the only articles I see his comments on.
