Tony Jones Jr. exited the New Orleans Saints’ game with the New York Giants early with an ankle injury, and the team later announced that he would be questionable to return. FOX sideline reporter Sara Walsh said Sean Payton did not anticipate Jones would get back on the field Sunday.

At least he wasn’t ruled out immediately. Jones had 3 rushing attempts for 8 yards before going down, though he caught just 1 of his 3 targets for a loss of 3 yards. The Saints were using him often until the injury.

Now they’ve got to lean harder on Alvin Kamara while mixing backup Dwayne Washington in here or there. They’re suddenly looking awful thin in the backfield after letting Latavius Murray go before the season started. Let’s hope nothing comes of it.
