Draft Scout Datone Jones News
10/30/13 - DE Datone Jones, the team's first-round draft pick, has been relegated to part-time duty as a situational pass rusher so far this season. Jones has shown flashes of production the last couple games but has only seven tackles and no sacks through seven games. "He's still developing," defensive coordinator Dom Capers said this week. "I think we'll see more consistence as we go along. He's still a young guy learning, and we're asking him to do a few things differently from what he's used to doing."
08/26/13 - DE Datone Jones played in the preseason loss to Seattle on Friday after missing the previous game because of an ankle sprain.
08/20/13 - DE Datone Jones didn't play in the 19-7 preseason victory at St. Louis on Saturday night. Jones, the team's first-round draft pick this year, had been out since suffering a sprained left ankle on his first play of action in the team's first exhibition game Aug. 9 but returned to practice Monday. Jones wasn't sure Monday whether he will be cleared to play in Friday's game against Seattle.
08/11/13 - DE Datone Jones suffered a sprained left ankle on his only play in the Packers' 17-0 loss to the Arizona Cardinals at Lambeau Field.
The injury occurred when Jones came in to line up with B.J. Raji as the down linemen for a third-down pass play in the first series of the game.
Jones didn't return to the game.
After saying following the game that Jones had the ankle sprain, McCarthy didn't provide any more insight into the injury when he addressed the media Saturday afternoon. McCarthy said Jones, the team's first-round draft pick, was undergoing tests in the afternoon.
07/30/13 - DE Datone Jones on several occasions has displayed the speed and explosiveness that made the former UCLA standout a desired commodity. Better yet, the 6-foot-4 Jones' disruptive physical skills don't seem to have been compromised any by bulking up by more than 15 pounds the last few months to a camp-reporting weight of 295. Jones, as expected, is running with the 1s at end in the base defense and getting extensive action alongside B.J. Raji as the situational pass-rushing down linemen.
