Baltimore Ravens WR Jacoby Jones impressed the team in his Week 6 return and will be utilized more on offense moving forward. 'It was great,' Ravens coach John Harbaugh said. 'Jacoby gave us a speed element out there, and he'll probably play more and more offensively as we go forward.'
Huddle Up: Jones' playing time will come at the expense of Marlon Brown and Tanden Doss, who had been carving out fringe fantasy numbers during his absence.

Baltimore Ravens WR Jacoby Jones (knee) was limited in practice Friday, Oct. 11, and is questionable for Week 6.
Huddle Up: Jones, who hasn't played since getting injured in the season opener, has been limited in practice all week, and will likely be a game-time decision.

Baltimore Ravens WR Jacoby Jones (knee) was limited in practice Wednesday, Oct. 9.
Huddle Up: It looks like Jones might be coming back soon, which would help that Baltimore offense. As for whether he will supplant Marlon Brown in the starting lineup. Perhaps a pre-emptive stash is in order, if you have the room on your roster.

Baltimore Ravens WR Jacoby Jones (knee) was limited in practice Friday, Oct. 4, and is questionable for Week 5.
Huddle Up: Questionable is the operative word with Baltimore wideouts this week as teammates Marlon Brown (thigh), Deonte Thompson (concussion) and Brandon Stokley (thigh) also fall under that designation as well. Jones hasn't played since getting injured in the season opener, and of the 4, Brown and Thompson -- if he gets final clearance -- have the best chance of playing Sunday in Miami. Regardless, you're going to have to stay on top of the situation all weekend if you're looking to start one of the quartet.

Baltimore Ravens WR Jacoby Jones (head, knee) suffered a head injury during an altercation on a party bus Monday, Sept. 23. Jones was allegedly hit over the head with a bottle and was bleeding everywhere.
Huddle Up: Hopefully he's ok, but he will still be out several more weeks while Marlon Brown continues to patrol the No. 2 spot at wide receiver.

Baltimore Ravens WR Jacoby Jones (knee) is expected to miss four to six weeks after an MRI revealed he suffered a sprained medial collateral ligament Week 1. He is not expected to need surgery on the knee.
Huddle Up: Marlon Brown will replace Jones in the starting lineup. Brown caught four balls for 65 yards and a score in Thursday night's loss to the Broncos. The Ravens need a receiver to step up and the undrafted free agent has some upside. Brown is worth adding in all leagues if you need depth at receiver.

Updating a previous report, Baltimore Ravens WR Jacoby Jones will have an MRI on his right knee Friday, Sept. 6. He was injured when he was barreled into by his own player after signaling for a fair catch on a punt return.
Huddle Up: Jones did not return to the game after suffering the injury. Marlon Brown stepped into his role on the offense and looked pretty good; if Jones will be out for any extended length of time, Brown would be a solid pickup.

Updating a previous report, Baltimore Ravens WR Jacoby Jones suffered a right knee sprain in the team's Week 1 game and was taken to the locker room.
Huddle Up: Jones was hurt when he was hit by his own teammate waiting to field a punt, and is not expected to return. It obviously hurts on special teams, but now hurts the Ravens' passing offense as well as he is now the team's No. 2 WR. Jones finished with 3 catches for 24 yards and was replaced by undrafted rookie Marlon Moore.

Baltimore Ravens WR Jacoby Jones passed his conditioning test on the second try. He was activated from the non-football injury list and cleared to practice.
Huddle Up: After some unneeded drama, it's now on to the matter at hand for Jones, who is the front-runner for the Ravens' No. 2 job. Tandon Doss, Deonte Thompson, David Reed and Tommy Streeter are among the other contenders.

Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said Tuesday, July 23, that he isn't too concerned about WR Jacoby Jones and his inability to pass the conditioning test, although he wasn't making excuses for the veteran either. "He should pass it, but he's battling. We'll see - it's up to him. It's his job to do. That's the facts. Facts are stubborn things," Harbaugh said. Jones was placed on the non-football injury list Monday, July 22.
Huddle Up: Harbaugh danced around the real question, which is how could Jones get himself ready for the rigors of the fox trot and the lambada while not being ready for the rigors of his day job? What, did he expect to just waltz into camp and take over Anquan Boldin's job? It's the most visible case of "Super Bowl hangover" in the Ravens' camp thus far, and unless the team comes up with a cure quickly a repeat will be out of the question.

Updating a previous report, Baltimore Ravens WR Jacoby Jones was placed on the Non-Football Injury list because the conditioning test he failed was a series of timed interval runs.
Huddle Up: Not exactly a good start for Jones who is pencilled in as the Ravens' No. 2 WR opposite Torrey Smith following the offseason trade of dependable vet Anquan Boldin.

The Baltimore Ravens will continue to search for a wide receiver this offseason after trading WR Anquan Boldin to the San Francisco 49ers. 'I think the hunt goes on,' assistant general manager Eric DeCosta said. 'We're still working. The roster is not set. We're always evaluating. We're always looking at guys. Guys get signed, guys get cut ... Our pro personnel department looks at all available players and we'll make a decision at some point of what we want to do at that position. There are definitely some players out there. We'll consider all options.' The Ravens are also banking on increased production from several wide receivers, including WR Jacoby Jones.
Huddle Up: With a lackluster 37 grabs for 341 yards and a TD in his first season in Baltimore, the Dancing with the Stars performer certainly has room to grow in the Ravens' offense, and the big-play ability he displayed in the postseason (5-147-2) is a good sign that he's headed in that direction.

The Baltimore Ravens may reduce WR Jacoby Jones' time as a punt and kick returner if he is one of the team's starting wide receivers this season.
Huddle Up: Right now there's not much on the Baltimore depth chart that stands between Jacoby and a starting job. David Reed and Tandon Doss would be in line to pick up Jacoby's return-game slack.

Baltimore Ravens WR Jacoby Jones, who had 290 all-purpose yards to establish a new Super Bowl record for total yardage, said recently that he wants to finish his career with the team. 'I want to retire here,' Jones said. He is due a $1 million roster bonus March 16, and he's due $3 million base salary with a $4.9 million salary cap figure. He has a $500,000 escalator clause triggered by total receptions.
Huddle Up: The Ravens are hurting for salary-cap space, but you'd think they'll find a way to keep Jones, who came up absolutely huge in their Super Bowl run.

Baltimore Ravens WR Jacoby Jones set a Super Bowl record with 290 combined yards (206 on kickoff returns, 28 on punt returns, 56-yard pass reception) in Super Bowl XLVII.
Huddle Up: You could make a pretty good case for Jones to have been the Super Bowl MVP, but that award more often than not goes to the winning quarterback and such was the case this year. Jones may not even return to Baltimore next year as the Ravens are tight against the cap, but his Super showing should earn him a return man/WR3 gig somewhere in the NFL.

The Baltimore Ravens could look to sign WR Jacoby Jones to a contract extension in order to lower his 2013 salary-cap figure of $4.9 million.
Huddle Up: While Jones had a limited regular-season impact as a No. 3 wideout, catching 30 passes for 406 yards and a TD, he's definitely had his postseason moments and was a Pro Bowl return man. If the Ravens can keep him around at a lower cap figure that obviously would be the best of both worlds.
