According to ESPN.com, the injury is not expected to be a season-ender, but will have more tests to confirm the diagnosis Friday. His availability for the start of the regular season is not yet known at this point.
Jones finished his rookie season with 54 tackles and six sacks.

Darrelle Revis agrees to one-year deal with Patriots
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com (3/12/14) The Patriots have agreed to a one-year deal with free-agent corner Darrelle Revis Wednesday according to ESPN.com, just hours after he was released by the Buccaneers. Revis will be taking a paycut while maintaining long-term flexibility, as the deal will pay him $12 million for 2014.
Revis had a solid 2013 season with the Buccaneers, recording 50 tackles and two interceptions while playing in all 16 games after recovering from knee surgery. He will replace the recently departed Aqib Talib for the Patriots, with one Pro-Bowl corner stepping in for another.
Spikes appeared on the NFL Network on Friday and said "both sides could benefit from a fresh start." He also added that his injured knee is "100 percent."
Spikes, who had 86 tackles during the 2013 season, was placed on injured reserve in advance of the AFC divisional round in part due to missing a team meeting. Spikes also was dealing with a knee issue during the latter part of the season.
