Coach Rex Ryan said Jones was held out of practice Wednesday, as he has for the past few weeks, to give the NFL's third-leading rusher a break. Fullback Tony Richardson was also given the day off.
Ryan said Jones was listed on the injury report with a knee injury, but added he could've practiced fully. Ryan said Jones has a bruised knee and there are "no problems at all with him."
Jones rushed for a career-high 1,402 yards and a franchise-record 14 touchdowns in the regular season.
Cornerback Donald Strickland (quadriceps) was a full participant after missing the last two games.
