The Miami Herald's Armando Salguero reports Jones' suspension is for an "OWI," or operating a vehicle while intoxicated. The incident reportedly occurred this past summer, but was never reported publicly. Jones has not been having a great season for the Dolphins, but he is a critical member of the team's deep defensive line rotation. Jones has 2.5 sacks through ten games.

Free agent DE Jason Jones will visit the Dolphins.

Jones had one of his more productive seasons in 2015, earning 4.5 sacks over 556 snaps as the Lions' starting left end. The Dolphins replaced Olivier Vernon with Mario Williams earlier this week but they're not done adding pieces to their defensive line. Ex-Giant Robert Ayers will visit Miami after his sit-down with the Buccaneers.

Lions LE Jason Jones is recovering from offseason knee surgery.

It sounds like a cleanup procedure one year after Jones suffered a torn patellar tendon. Jones is expected back for training camp, although this could open the door for Larry Webster or Devin Taylor to make a run at left-end snaps.

Lions GM Martin Mayhew said the team is bringing back DE Jason Jones.

A report surfaced earlier this offseason that Jones could be released to make room for free agent Ndamukong Suh. The Lions are keeping him. Jones tied a career-high with five sacks in 2014 and was especially good against the run. Hanging onto both Jones and George Johnson could be a sign the Lions are getting ready for life after Suh. Mayhew said Jones' $3.15M contract won't be restructured.

MLive.com considers Lions LE Jason Jones a strong candidate to be released this offseason.

After rupturing his patellar tendon last season, Jones returned to start all 17 games, including Detroit's playoff loss. He was used as an early-down edge-setter against the run. Jones received positive marks in that area, but is set to count $4 million against the 2015 cap. The Lions need to pinch every penny if they're going to hammer out a mega-extension with Ndamukong Suh.

Lions LE Jason Jones (knee) expects to be ready for the offseason program.

Jones tore his left patellar tendon in Week 3. MLive.com expects him to return as the starter opposite RE Ziggy Ansah, though Devin Taylor could also be in the mix. Patellar tendon tears are tough injuries to come back from. Jones will turn 28 in May and generated just two pressures in 87 snaps last season.

Lions placed LE Jason Jones on injured reserve with torn left patellar tendon, ending his season.

The 27-year-old end went down with a non-contact injury in Sunday's win. Signed to a three-year, $9.5 million deal in March, Jones ends his first year in the Motor City having generated just two quarterback pressures in 87 snaps (per Pro Football Focus). Andre Fluellen is taking Jones' roster spot, though Willie Young, Israel Idonije and perhaps rookie Devin Taylor will split up his role.

Lions LE Jason Jones tore the patellar tendon in his left knee in Sunday's Week 3 win over the Redskins and is done for the season.

Jones was carted off in the second quarter after his knee gave out on a non-contact play. The 27-year-old wasn't creating much pressure on the quarterback through two-plus games, and he was near the bottom of Pro Football Focus' 4-3 defensive end rankings. However, Jones was a valuable veteran presence up front. Willie Young and Israel Idonije will fill in at left end for the remainder of the season. Jones signed a three-year, $9.5 million deal in March.
