Jones had his head down and was legally crunched by the two 'Hawks. As the Nashville broadcast went to commercial, the camera caught Jones bringing a hand up to his jaw. He did re-join the play, seeming no worse for wear, and even finished the period.
The wunderkind d-man will not be returning for the remainder of the game. I'm sure the Preds would like to classify his status as vaguely as possible (i.e. upper-body injury), but no one told Seth's dad, Popeye Jones.
In an intermission interview with Fox Sports Tennessee, Popeye revealed his son is out with "concussion-like syndrome". Something tells me Popeye doesn't deal with many head injuries in the NBA.
So Seth Jones’ dad Popeye just said that Seth has a "concussion-like syndrome” during his interview with FS Tennessee.
