Jones also missed last weekend's match against Chelsea due to the ailment, and his second consecutive absence could lead to another start for Paddy McNair.

Jones (ankle) has been ruled out for Saturday's match against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

Jones' injury comes at a terrible time for United, who will also be without Jonny Evans (suspension), Marcos Rojo (abdomen), Daley Blind (ankle) and Michael Carrick (calf). With all the absences, Paddy McNair and Tyler Blackett could be thrust into the starting XI against a very powerful Chelsea attack, albeit one without Diego Costa (hamstring).

Jones (ankle) is in the starting XI for Saturday's match against Swansea.

Jones (ankle) is fit to face Swansea City on Saturday, manager Louis van Gaal confirmed Friday.

Jones has been a pretty regular starter when he's fit, so it's entirely possible that he could be back in the starting XI, possible in a back line with Marcos Rojo and Chris Smalling.

Jones came off just four minutes into the match, replaced by Chris Smalling who went on to score twice. It's unclear how long Jones will be sidelined, though van Gaal indicated it would not be a short absence.

Jones had a game-high 12 clearances, as well as three interceptions and one tackle during Manchester United's 2-0 win over QPR on Saturday.

Jones got the start with Jonny Evans and Marcos Rojo in a three-man back line, though Evans was taken off less than an hour into the match. Jones continues to be a vital piece of the Man U defense and should continue to start as long as he's fit.
