Battling illness

Jones exited Sunday's game against the Falcons due to an illness, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports.

Jones had one carry for two yards and caught his lone target for zero yards during the first half before leaving due to the ailment. Giovani Bernard should step up as Tampa Bay's No. 2 tailback behind starter Leonard Fournette.

Unlikely to play

Jones (ankle) missed another practice Friday and thus appears unlikely to play this Sunday against the Rams, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

Not practicing, but improving

Grayson (hamstring) remained a non-participant in Thursday's practice, but he was on the field in a helmet working out off to the side during the portion of the session that was open to the media, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.
