Some reinforcements could be on the way for teams hoping to make a playoff push.
Jones was in the midst of a disappointing season before suffering a wrist injury that required surgery in Week 3. Jones, the 2013 first-round draft pick, recorded 14 tackles and two sacks in three games.
On a Steelers' defense that has been gashed week after week, any help is beneficial. Getting Jones back in the lineup as soon as possible will be an enhancement as Pittsburgh fights for a playoff spot in the tight AFC North.
