Not good news – another starter out. Though I have to say, as much as the loss of any player hurts, Jones hadn’t been playing at too high of a level this year. His hit on Favre (leading to the Bishop pick-six) was big and he made a few other nice plays. But Zombo ought to be able and step in without too big of a drop-off.
Picking up Howard Green might have been a good move. He’s huge and has experience on the D-Line. We obviously need D-Line bodies and at 340lbs, he’ll be more than just a body. Nice. (Of course, Green was just cut by the Jets so there can never be more than muted excitement when picking up a cut player.)
