More work possible Thursday
Jones could be in line for a bigger workload Thursday against the Bills with Alvin Kamara (knee) ruled out and Mark Ingram (knee) questionable for the contest, Larry Holder of The Athletic reports.
Kamara's sprained MCL is forcing a third straight absence, while Ingram was listed as limited twice and with no activity once on Saints practice reports during Week 12 prep. If Ingram ends up joining Kamara as inactive Thursday, Jones, special-teamer Dwayne Washington, fullback Alex Armah and wide receiver Ty Montgomery would be the candidates for backfield reps. To date, Jones has gotten the most work among the quartet at running back this season, averaging 3.6 yards on his 22 carries and gathering in four of six targets for 10 yards.
