He may not be out at all...
Yahoo! player update thingy wrote:Nov 2 Coach Lovie Smith assumes Jones (foot), whose MRI Monday did not reveal any significant damage, will be able to play Sunday vs. the Giants, the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Recommendation: The MRI results come as good news for Jones, who at least will not have to miss a substantial amount of time. The running back's availability for this week, however, won't likely be known until late in the week after Jones has tested out his sore foot in practice. Therefore, his fantasy owners should be ready with a backup in case Jones is not able to go Sunday, in which Anthony Thomas would get the start. - Rotowire
Nov 2 An MRI on Jones' ailing left foot has revealed a sprained big toe, but no structural damage was found. As a result, the Bears are optimistic that the running back will be available for Sunday's game against the New York Giants. He will be evaluated on a daily basis to determine his status. In seven games this season, Jones has 511 yards and five touchdowns on 117 carries, along with 26 receptions for 191 yards.
Advice: Jones likely won't practice much this week, and a decision on whether he will play might not come until pregame warmups. Anthony Thomas will get the starting nod if Jones is unable to play. - Stats, Inc.
