Dolphins safety Reshad Jones is back at practice for Miami
The Miami Dolphins received a huge boost on Monday with strong safety Reshad Jones returning to practice. Jones spent most of the last two weeks in a walking boot dealing with an injury, but appears to be heading in the right direction to be ready for Week 1.
On Monday, Jones didn’t participate in the team portion of practice, but did participate in individual drills. Jones said after practice that it felt good to be running around and back with his teammates.
“It felt good,” Jones said, via the Palm Beach Post. “It felt good to be back out there with my teammates. Just running around a little bit. I haven’t run around in a while, but it felt pretty good.”
Jones doesn’t know if he will appear in the last two preseason games, but knows he will be ready to go Week 1 against the Baltimore Ravens.
The defense is a bit different than years past and Jones knows that his role could change from week to week, and that is something he is embracing. Jones said that he is willing to do whatever needs to be done to help the team win games.
“Whatever it takes to help this team win football games, that’s what I’m willing to do,” Jones said. “Get myself physically, mentally ready to play 16 games, play a long stretch. And when the time comes, I’ll be ready, whatever that role is.”
If Jones can stay healthy, he is going to play a key role in the team’s success, or lack thereof with the defense.
