If Monday's tests confirm the tear, Jones' season could be over, Rapoport added.
Jones was the only NFL player with at least five interceptions and more than 100 tackles in 2015. Ranked No. 64 on NFL Network's The Top 100 Players Of 2016 countdown, the sure-tackling Jones attacks the line of scrimmage in the run game and has the ability to ball hawk as the last line of defense.
Just four games into his stint as Miami's head coach, Adam Gase noted that potential Hall of Famer Brian Dawkins is the only safety he's been around who reminds him of Jones.
Frustrated with his team's effort late last month, Gase identified his star safety as one of the few bright spots.
Jones has been the NFL's No. 1 strong safety since the start of last season and would have been decorated as a first-team All Pro had his team enjoyed more success.
