Redskins LB Edgar Jones suffered a concussion in Washington's Friday evening preseason game.

An ill-timed injury for a special teamer and reserve linebacker who was active just five times for the Ravens last season. If Jones isn't active for Washington's preseason finale on September 1, he can likely kiss his chances of making the roster goodbye.
