AFC Championship: Latest Injury Update on Chandler Jones

Jim Rogash

The latest injury update on New England Patriots defensive end Chandler Jones

Over the past few seasons that I've been covering the New England Patriots, there's not one defensive player that Bill Belichick has drafted that has impressed me as much as Chandler Jones has during his rookie campaign.

The Syracuse product fought through an injury-plagued season, but still managed to put up solid numbers. While playing in 14 games, Jones recorded 45 tackles and six sacks while forcing three fumbles and deflecting two passes.

Jones missed two games this season due to an ankle injury and was forced to leave this week's past game against the Houston Texans early. However, according to Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald, Jones did not require a walking boot following the game.

The latest on Jones was that he was limited at practice Thursday—but the good sign is, he was the lone Patriots player limited.

According to Mike Reiss of ESPN Boston, the defensive end's status for Sunday's AFC Championship Game is still up on the air.

Per ESPN Boston:

I’m doing everything I possibly can to be out there and play against the Ravens. I’m doing my best to get out there as soon as possible.

Hopefully for New England's sake, Jones will be available to play—but well just have to wait and see.
