Sean McDermott announced on Tuesday afternoon that defensive tackle DaQuan Jones will return to practice. That means the Bills are opening up his 21-day practice window to be activated off injured reserve and return to active roster.
Jones was originally placed on injured reserve after injuring his pec in Week 5's game against the Jaguars which took place in London. The DT has missed nine total games so far this season and could miss more as McDermott said he does not anticipate that Jones will play on Saturday.
"I don't expect him to play at this point, but it's good to have him back starting to work out there," McDermott said.
Jones quickly became an important part of the defensive line in just five games played this season. The DT racked up 2.5 sacks and 5 quarterback hits in those contests.
McDermott also announced that Jordan Phillips would miss Tuesday's practice as he recovers from the wrist surgery that he got on Sunday night. The HC also said Kaiir Elam and Justin Shorter's practice windows to return to the active roster remain open.
And, McDermott announced that Von Miller will not be at Tuesday's practice due to a family funeral.
