So far, he understands the situation he is in, and is making the best of it:
"“I can get better by taking mental reps, as I’m not practicing,” he said. “Watch practice, see what people are doing good and see what people are doing bad and just learn from that. Film room, weight room, nutrition. Everything can play a part in progressing yourself as a player. I’m feeling good. Everything looks good to them (the medical staff). We’re just going to follow the protocol and the schedule. No rush to get me back. We’re just going to go whenever I’m ready, whenever everybody else feels I’m ready.” – Per PhiladelphiaEagles.com Dave Spadaro Interview"
The Philadelphia Eagles could come out ahead from all of this navigation of Jones injury. If the team finds success this season, the defensive backfield gets a huge boost later in the season. If Sidney Jones IV delivers the same level of play demonstrated during his Washington Football days, his return will give the Eagles a boost as they make a run at the playoffs.
But the team must win without Jones to make that happen
If the timetable for Jones’ return is too late in the season, the team may simply call the season a wash and simply await next season to debut Jones.
