Jones will not be available for the next U.S. World Cup qualifier against Honduras on March 24 due to yellow card accumulation. Because of that, U.S. head coach Bruce Arena has allowed Jones to rejoin the LA Galaxy for the team’s preseason while he looks at other players.

Kljestan returns home as he and his wife are expecting a new baby in the next week.

Jones played just the first half in the USA's 0-0 draw against Serbia on Sunday before being replaced by Galaxy teammate Sebastian Lleget. Kljestan went 77 minutes before Benny Feilhaber replaced him. Both substitutes are prime candidates to start against Jamaica, with Dax McCarty also a possibility.
