Jones is in contention to face Arsenal on Saturday after rehabbing his shin injury with the club during the international break, the Telegraph reports.

There is no guarantee that Jones will be fit enough to play, and there may not be a reason to rush him back, as Chris Smalling is available after serving a three-match ban and Jonny Evans appears to be near fitness from an ankle injury. Even if he plays, it's a tough fantasy matchup for Jones against an Arsenal side that is tied for fifth in goals this season.

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal said Tuesday that Jones (shin) is unlikely to play against Arsenal on Nov. 22 after the international break, The Guardian reports.

Jones has already dealt with a couple of injuries this season and after being out for so long, he doesn't have the fitness to play a full 90 minutes, which van Gaal used as his reason for likely keeping him out. And while van Gaal left open the possibility that Jones could be available off the bench, he's not a significant-enough fantasy producer to start with the hope of production as a sub.

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal said Monday he does not know when Jones will be able to return from his shin splints, the Manchester Evening News reports.

Jones has been in-and-out of the lineup due to a variety of injuries this season, but even when he's fit, the United defense has struggled mightily, reducing his relatively low fantasy value even more.

Jones was unable to play in Manchester United's Premier League match against Chelsea on Sunday due to shin splints.

Jones has battled a number of injuries all year, and while he continues to get starts when he's fit, he could begin to miss out to Marcos Rojo and Chris Smalling, who started Sunday and were the seventh centreback combination used by Louis van Gaal this season.

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal confirmed Friday that Jones is still not fit following his hamstring injury, and he will not play Sunday against Everton, according to the club's official website

Jones was not named to the England squad for their Euro 2016 qualifiers against San Marino and Estonia, so he will use the upcoming international break to continue his rehab, with the goal of returning Oct. 20 at West Brom.

Jones could miss at least four weeks due to the hamstring injury he picked up while on international duty, the Telegraph reports. "Jones is injured," manager Louis van Gaal said. "He has hurt his hamstring and will be out for three-four weeks. I don't want to say that because it could put pressure on him to be back in that time, but that is the situation."

New-signing Marcos Rojo is expected to take his place in the starting XI and if he performs well, Jones could have a tough time getting his spot back when he is fit again.

Jones suffered a hamstring injury during Euro 2016 qualifying for England and could be out for up to three weeks, the Daily Mail reports.

Jones has played in all of United's matches this season but will be sidelined for the near future. However, the injury doesn't seem to be too serious as a medical scan revealed that a likely span of absence is between 2-3 weeks.

Jones (shoulder) will have two weeks to prove he is fit enough to be part of England's World Cup team with Everton's John Stones to be named as a potential replacement in the England squad, reports the Mirror.

Jones was injured in a collision while facing Hull City. Though ligament damage to his shoulder was confirmed, interim manager Ryan Giggs insisted the player would be fit to play for England.
