Donald Jones: 'It's definitely frustrating to be out there'

By Jay Skurski

Buffalo Bills receiver Donald Jones finished with three catches for 33 yards today in his return following a one-game absence because of a calf injury. He was targeted five times by quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick.

The Bills were held to one offensive touchdown in the 15-12 loss to the St. Louis Rams at Ralph Wilson Stadium, the fourth time this season they've finished with that many or fewer in a game.

"It's always frustrating when you can't your playmakers the ball," he said after the game. "We've got a lot of playmakers on this team and it hurts when you know you have so many playmakers and we can't get the ball and do what we do.

"It's definitely frustrating to be out there, and it's frustrating to come in here every week and go through this."

Jones said the Bills missed several opportunities to put points on the board, a common theme among players in the locker room after the game.

"Whatever's called, we've got to make the plays," he said. "We all have certain drives that stick in our head the most. I'm not going to comment on those, I'll keep them to myself. … Like I said, from an offensive standpoint, we know we've got a lot of playmakers on this offense. So to go through this year after year -- I've only been here three years -- but we play to win and play to make the playoffs. To being going through this every year, it really hurts."

Jones said he had no doubt the Bills were talented enough as a team.

"We definitely are. We just haven't gotten it done this year, and hopefully it starts getting done soon," he said.
