Jones, who signed an undisclosed contract with the Bengals prior to the 2010 season, has not played since that Week 7 injury and has undergone two surgical procedures on his neck in the past year.
The Bengals (4-2), coming off a bye, have three weeks to decide whether to put Jones on the active 53-man roster.
In 44 career games with the Bengals, Cowboys and Titans, Jones has recorded 160 tackles and five interceptions. Over that span, he has dealt with a myriad of off-the-field legal troubles -- including involvement in a Las Vegas strip club shooting in 2007, resulting in multiple league suspensions.
