Going to Indianapolis
The Colts selected Jones in the seventh round of the 2023 NFL Draft, 221st overall.
Jones (6-foot-2, 200 pounds) played corner on a tough Texas A&M pass defense but might lack the athletic traits to stay at corner in the NFL. Jones has poor reach and that could be a problem when paired with his 4.57-second 40. A move to safety or a focus on the slot could be the remedy, because the Colts can't let Jones get caught in sideline races.

Rotational player in 2022
Jones, who left Sunday's game with a concussion, ended the season with 49 tackles and a forced fumble over 16 games played.
Jones played mostly on special teams through Week 8, but when the Bears dealt with injuries at cornerback, he moved into a more prominent role. He played more than 30 snaps on just four occasions, but in two of those games, he posted tackle totals of eight and 14. He should continue to serve as a rotational player in 2023. He's signed through the 2024 season.
Ruled out with concussion
Jones has been ruled out for Sunday's matchup against the Vikings due to a concussion.
Jones presumably suffered a concussion during the Bears' blowout loss to Detroit in Week 17 and didn't practice at all during Week 18 prep, so it's not surprising to see him ruled out. Kyler Gordon (groin) is questionable, so Chicago may be without two of its top cornerbacks for the regular-season finale against Minnesota.
