Draft Scout Snapshot: A closer look at the Packers' picks: Round 1/26 -- Datone Jones, DE, 6-4, 285, UCLA...Jones should give Green Bay's short-handed and underwhelming defensive line an immediate upgrade as an ideal fit for its diversified 3-4 scheme. He's athletic, plays physical and tracks the football in a hurry, tying everything together to blow up the backfield with 19 tackles for loss (6.5 sacks) last season. Jones' experience of playing at multiple spots in the Packers' style of defense will allow coordinator Dom Capers to create pass-rushing mismatches in a tandem with outside linebacker Clay Matthews. - The Sports Xchange

10/23/14 - DE Datone Jones took part in Thursday's practice in limited fashion after he was held out the previous day. Jones has missed the last two games because of a sprained right ankle. His status appears to be no better than questionable for the game at New Orleans on Sunday night. Josh Boyd started in place of Jones at left end in the last game.
10/22/14 - DE Datone Jones continues to be sidelined with a sprained right ankle. Jones has missed the last two games, and his prospects for being cleared for the Sunday night game at New Orleans appear bleak. Josh Boyd is the next man up at left defensive end.
10/20/14 - DE Datone Jones missed a second consecutive game because of a sprained right ankle. Josh Boyd, a second-year player, made his first pro start in place of Jones at left defensive end in Sunday's game.
10/16/14 - DE Datone Jones didn't practice Thursday, a day after the team's training staff put him through a workout during practice. Jones, a starter, missed the last game because of a sprained right ankle. "He's not recovering as fast as we thought," head coach Mike McCarthy said Thursday. That doesn't bode well for Jones' availability Sunday against the Panthers. Josh Boyd would be a possibility to fill in for Jones.
10/15/14 - DE Datone Jones practiced on a limited basis Wednesday. The young starter missed Sunday's victory at Miami because of a sprained right ankle. His status for the upcoming game against Carolina won't be known until later in the week.

10/09/14 - DE Datone Jones missed a second straight day of practice Thursday and appears unlikely to play Sunday at the Miami Dolphins. Jones is beset with a sprained ankle he sustained in the last game. Green Bay doesn't have practice Friday, when his status for the game will be announced on the final injury report. Jones has been a starter since the beginning of the season. The Packers could compensate without Jones by employing hybrid outside linebackers Julius Peppers and Mike Neal more as down linemen.
10/08/14 - DE Datone Jones didn't practice Wednesday as the team returned to the field for the first time since the rout of the Minnesota Vikings last Thursday. Jones left that game in the first half with a sprained right ankle and didn't return. Head coach Mike McCarty classified Jones' status as "day to day," but the young starter likely will have to be involved in practice Thursday to have a shot to play Sunday at the Miami Dolphins.
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."
