The two big injury blows for Jones are Ben Te’o and Brad Shields with side strainss.
Neither men were involved in Tuesday’s training session but will remain with the squad to continue their reconditioning until Thursday when the team travel to Dublin.
Shields was not involved in training on Tuesday prompting fears he would not be fit in time to make the game at the Aviva Stadium.
He was first choice blindside flanker during the November internationals for matches against South Africa, New Zealand and Australia.
The biggest casualties to drop out are Leicester prop Dan Cole and Bath centre Jonathan Joseph. With Te’o also out it looks increasingly likely that Henry Slade and Manu Tuilagi are in pole position to be named in the centre, unless Eddie Jones elects to put Elliot Daly in there which would mean a potential recall for Mike Brown at full-back.
