Jones has sprained ligaments medial collateral ligaments in his right knee and is expected to miss between four to six weeks of action.
The news comes on the back of a thumping loss at the hands of the Denver Broncos who scored 49 points by way of seven touchdown passes from Peyton Manning.
In the wake of the news regarding Jones’ injury, the Ravens will consider looking at free agents to boost their playing numbers as they desperately to try and turn around their form.

Lloyd has attracted interest from other teams since hitting the open market, however, Baltimore would be rolling the dice if they signed Robinson as he is a concussion risk and has been passed over by six teams since work-outs at the end of July.
Jones suffered the injury in the second quarter in the game against the Broncos when he collided with teammate Brynden Trawick on a punt return.
