Jones (ankle) underwent successful surgery and is expected to miss 8-to-10 weeks.

Jones suffered a sprain and hairline fracture of his ankle on Saturday and underwent surgery on Tuesday. Jones will miss a minimum of two months, which will sideline him for the rest of the regular season but could allow him to be ready for the start of the playoffs should the Blue Jackets qualify.

Jones is out indefinitely with an ankle injury; has been placed on IR.

Jones went crashing hard into the Avalanche net in Saturday's home loss but finished the game, playing 23:25 TOI. However, ahead of their game with the Lightning on Monday, the Blue Jackets announced they'll be without Jones indefinitely. This is obviously a serious blow for Columbus and could change their plans heading into the trade deadline. David Savard seems like a prime candidate to move up to the top pair with Zach Werenski.

Jones (knee) will make his season debut on Tuesday.

Jones has missed the first seven games of the season with a sprained MCL that he suffered on September 25th. Jones was expected to miss 4-6 weeks, so he's returning a couple days earlier than originally expected. Jones will be reunited on the top pair with Zach Werenski, forming one of the best defensive pairings in the league. He will also play on the second power-play unit and should be a double-digit goal-scorer with 50-point upside.

The Blue Jackets have placed Seth Jones (knee) on IR.

Jones has been moved to IR retroactive to September 25th and is expected to be out until at least late-October. Jones has been given a 4-6 week timetable and should become a sleeper as he drops down fantasy boards this week. The 23-year-old will look to build off of a career-best 57 points (16G / 41A) in 78 games. Zach Werenski will eat up massive minutes at even-strength and the top power-play while Jones is out.

Jones will miss 4-6 weeks with a 2nd degree MCL sprain.

Jones suffered an MCL sprain during Tuesday’s preseason game vs. the Sabres and will miss at least one month. This is another blow to Columbus’ blueline, who will also be without Ryan Murray (groin) to start the season and Zach Werenski is coming off of major off-season shoulder surgery. Werenski should be ready for the start of the year and anchor the top power-play unit with Jones out.

Jones (upper-body) will be a game-time decision on Thursday.

Jones has missed the last three games with an upper-body injury, but could return tonight vs. the Panthers. Jones is a candidate for the Norris Trophy this season, so his return to the Blue Jackets lineup would obviously be a huge boost. He has registered 14 goals and 35 assists (49 points) in 71 games so far.

Jones (upper-body) will play Thursday in Philadelphia.

Jones was forced to leave Monday’s game for vs. Montreal but head coach John Tortorella said that it was precautionary. Jones was still able to pick up a goal and an assist before leaving the game, giving him four goals and three assists (seven points) in his last three games. Make sure he’s active in all formats on Thursday.

Jones will miss three weeks with a hairline fracture in his foot.

Jones suffered the injury on Saturday in St. Louis and will miss the next three weeks. Missing three weeks would mean that Jones will miss the next 10 games, which is a huge loss for the Blue Jackets. The 22-year-old has six points (3G / 3A) in 10 games while averaging 24:14 TOI per game. Zach Werenski and Jack Johnson will likely be leaned on more heavily with Jones out.

The Blue Jackets signed Seth Jones to a six-year contract worth $32.5 million ($5.416M AAV).

Jones, 21, had 20 points (2G / 18A) in 41 games with the Blue Jackets after he was acquired from Nashville. Overall, he had 31 points (3G / 28A) in 2015-16, which was a new career-high for the 2013 4th overall pick. Jones has top-pairing upside and the Blue Jackets are hoping he takes a big step forward in 2016-17.

The Blue Jackets have acquired Seth Jones from the Predators for Ryan Johansen.

Jones was the fourth overall pick in 2013 and has been a force at both ends of the ice for the Predators. Nashville likely did not want to give Jones up, but they have a plethora of talented defensemen and were seeking help at forward, so Jones was dealt. He has 63 points (15G / 48A) in 199 career NHL games.

Jones (concussion) played 12:40 and registered one shot on goal in his return to the Predators lineup on Saturday.

Jones had missed the previous five games with a concussion he suffered on March 23rd in Chicago. The Predators season is coming to a close, which means the end of Jones' rookie season. As of now, he has six goals and 18 asssits in 73 games. His 24 points has him tied for 21st amongst rookies in scoring.
