Redskins RB Matt Jones out for London game against Bengals
LONDON (AP) Redskins running back Matt Jones says he will not play in Washington's game against the Cincinnati Bengals at Wembley Stadium on Sunday because of a knee injury.
Jones, who has 99 carries for 460 yards and three touchdowns this season, says he has ''a bruise and some cartilage damage'' after getting hurt in the second quarter of the Redskins' 20-17 road loss to the Detroit Lions last Sunday.
He has not practiced at any point this week and was the only Redskins player who did not participate Friday at Twyford Ground in Acton.
With Jones out, the Redskins will turn to Chris Thompson, who ran for a career-high 73 yards against the Lions, and rookie Robert Kelly. They also signed Mack Brown off their practice squad, cutting safety Josh Evans.
