Jones (ankle) has been ruled out for Wednesday's Champions League match against PSV Eindhoven.

Jones suffered the injury last Saturday against Watford and was always a long shot to recover quickly enough for the UCL match. Daley Blind moved over to centerback earlier this season when Jones was sidelined, though Paddy McNair is also an option there.

Jones suffered an ankle injury Saturday against Watford and is unlikely to play in Wednesday's Champions League match against PSV Eindhoven.

Jones was replaced by Paddy McNair in the 69th minute of Saturday's match due to the ailment, though Daley Blind could be the replacement at centerback against PSV to partner with Chris Smalling.

Jones would be available for selection in the CL clash with CSKA Moscow on Tuesday, says manager Louis van Gaal .

The central back missed the weekend game with Crystal Palace and there were renewed concerns about his fitness, but his absence seems to be more of a fatigue issue rather than injury.

Jones is hoping to have an extended period of fitness ahead of him so he can prove himself alongside teammate Chris Smalling, according to the Daily Mail.

Jones has dealt with a number of injuries since joining Manchester United, and recently returned from thrombosis. He is hopeful that a long run of fitness will allow him to prove that he can be a top defender in the Premier League.

Jones made his second start of the season on Wednesday against CSKA Moscow after overcoming blood clots.

Jones started against Everton the prior weekend, and also played for England after returning to full training in September.

Jones is available for Saturday's match against Everton. "I was very pleased with Jones. Yes, of course [he is fit] because he has already played for me two times for 15 or 20 minutes. Then he plays for the England team. When I want to select him I can select him for the line-up." manager Louis van Gaal said.

The English center back has played in only 55 minutes across three matches all season. While he's not van Gaal's first choice center back, with all of the injuries sustained along United's back line, Jones could find himself playing sooner rather than later.

Jones (illness) is available off the bench Saturday against Sunderland.

Jones has yet to play this season due to a blood clotting issue, and while manager Louis van Gaal said this week that Jones is ready to play, he's not ready to go a full 90 minutes, which is why he isn't starting.

Jones (illness) has returned to full training, though manager Louis van Gaal said he is still not match fit.

Jones has yet to feature this season due to mild thrombosis, a blood clot issue, and while he is back in training, it'll likely be another week or two before he's considered for selection. Daley Blind has been lining up as a starting centerback alongside Chris Smalling, though the injury to Luke Shaw (leg) could shuffle the players again.
