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.

Jones (knee) returned to practice on Friday but won’t play on Saturday.
Jones was originally expected to be out until early-to-mid November, but he is apparently ahead of schedule in his return from an MCL sprain. Monitor Jones’ status heading into next week.

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) is on the ice for warmups; expected to play Thursday vs. the Panthers.

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 not play Monday in Boston.
Jones traveled to Boston but will miss his second straight game with an upper-body injury. Jones could be ready to go when the Blue Jackets get to New York for Tuesday’s game against the Rangers. Monitor his status tomorrow.
Jones (upper-body) traveled to Boston but is questionable for Monday’s game.
Jones missed Saturday’s game vs. the Senators with an upper-body injury but he could be back tonight vs. the Bruins. Jones travelled to Boston but the Blue Jackets rarely hold a morning skate, so we might not get an update on Jones’ status until closer to game-time.
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.

The Blue Jackets have activated Seth Jones (foot) from IR; expected to return on Monday.
Jones missed the last six games with hairline fracture in his foot, but is expected to return to the lineup tonight vs. Colorado. Jones has collected three goals and three assists in 10 games this season and is expected to return to his spot alongside Zach Werenski tonight.
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.

Jones (concussion) is on the ice for the Predators' morning skate, but it appears he won't play.
Jones was cleared to return to game action on Tuesday, but he is not taking part in line rushes this morning. Usually if a player is returning he will skate along side his D partner in practice--Jones is not which suggests he will miss his fifth consecutive game.
Jones (upper-body) has been cleared to return to game action.
Jones missed the last four games after being rocked by Andrew Shaw on March 23 in Chicago. Jones has scored six goals with 18 assists (24 points) and a minus-23 rating in 72 games in his rookie season. Expect him to be back in the lineup on Friday.

Jones (upper-body) will not play on Tuesday.
After being injured on Sunday, Jones will not play on Monday and is doubtful for the back-to-back on Thursday and Friday. Michael Del Zotto will slot back into the lineup with Jones out.
Jones (upper-body) is not on the ice for the Preds' morning skate.
Jones left Sunday's game after being crunched by Andrew Shaw. His absence this morning suggests that he will not be in the lineup tonight vs. Colorado. That would mean Michael Del-Zotto will be back in the lineup tonight.
Seth Jones will be paired with Shea Weber to begin tonight's game.
With Roman Josi out with a concussion the Predators have to shake up their pairings a bit. Jones has yet to register a point but he has averaged 22:11 TOI in his first two NHL games. Alongside Weber, Jones could become a legit fantasy option in his rookie season.
