Defensive end Jason Jones had his left foot in a walking boot due to a high ankle sprain suffered in Saturday's Christmas Eve victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars. The injury has Jones' status uncertain for Sunday's regular-season finale in Houston. I'm doing all right. My ankle is hurting a little bit right now. It just depends on how my ankle responds to treatment this week. Hopefully, I can play. It's one of the biggest games of the year.
