Jones went on injured resreve Sept. 29 with a thumb injury. He was designated for return Nov. 8, clearing him to practice.
In three games this season, the rookie has averaged 18.8 yards on eight punt returns with a touchdown. He also has one catch for 6 yards.
He is a fourth-round draft pick of the Bengals.
Jackson made his NFL debut last week and made a tackle on three special teams snaps.
