The Shakers, still searching for their first win under new boss David Flitcroft and in Sky Bet League Two's bottom two at Christmas, played the last 20 minutes of the 2-1 loss to the Pilgrims with 10 men because Jones had to come off with a groin injury.
"Craig Jones has a groin problem," Flitcroft revealed. "We could have left him on but then if you do a 10-day injury becomes a six-week injury."
On-loan full-back Shaun Beeley lasted just 34 minutes before being brought off complaining off tight hamstrings and he will be a major doubt with the quick turnaround, as is midfielder Tom Soares who did not feature in Devon due to a similar problem.
