In this photo taken Oct. 24, 2016, Washington Redskins running back Matt Jones fumbles into the end zone against the Detroit Lions during an NFL football game in Detroit. Detroit recovered the fumble. Jones' problems holding onto the football are hardly the only mistake the Washington Redskins will want to correct before they play again. Still, Jones' fumbling woes are going to get a lot of attention until Washington (4-3) lines up against the Cincinnati Bengals (3-4) in London next Sunday, Oct.30, 2016. (AP Photo/Paul Sancya)

In this photo taken Dec. 7, 2015, Washington Redskins running back Matt Jones (31) gets a hand off from quarterback Kirk Cousins (8) during the first half of an NFL football game against the Dallas Cowboys in Landover, Md. Jones finds it strange not to see Alfred Morris in the Washington Redskins’ huddle. With Morris gone, the No. 1 running back job is his. Jones knows that going into next season. During offseason workouts, he’s trying to tighten his grip on the football because he’ll be getting the majority of the carries moving forward. (AP Photo/Patrick Semansky)

In this photo taken Sept. 20, 2015, Washington Redskins running back Matt Jones (31) dives for extra yardage after breaking a tackle by St. Louis Rams outside linebacker Alec Ogletree (52) during the second half of an NFL football game in Landover, Md. By adding rookie Jones to dependable veteran Alfred Morris, the Washington Redskins have created an unusual two-back rushing attack. How unusual? With Jones running for 123 yards in Week 2, after Morris gained 121 yards in Week 1, the Redskins are the first NFL team since 2006 to have two backs each gain at least 100 yards on the ground in a season's first two games.
