Patriots DL Jones a no-show for media
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) New England Patriots defensive lineman Chandler Jones is keeping a low profile in the week after he was taken to the hospital with an unspecified medical emergency.
The Pro Bowl selection has not missed practice since showing up at a police station requesting help. But Jones was not present on Wednesday during the team’s media availability.
The Boston Herald first reported that Jones was rushed to Norwood Hospital after showing up at the Foxborough police station. The Patriots confirmed that Jones was admitted to the hospital and released the same day.
Jones’ teammates said they will give him whatever support he needs.
The Patriots are preparing for Saturday’s playoff game against the Kansas City Chiefs.
