Bills' Jones says illness not career-threatening

The SportsXchange

Buffalo wide receiver Donald Jones' breakout season came to an end this week, when the Bills placed him on injured reserve with an undisclosed medical condition.

Jones' finished with 41 catches for 443 yards and four touchdowns, similar to numbers from his first two seasons combined. He'll have to wait until next season to build on that success.

"Going from having really the best season that I've had in the league to this now, it's definitely something that I didn't want to have to go through," Jones told reporters Thursday. "But that initial impact is done now. So now it's just moving forward. I've got to go home and get right and get everything healthy and get back on the field and be strong for everybody."

Jones declined to discuss specifics about his condition, except to say that's "not career-threatening at all" and is something he's been "dealing with for years."

"Going on IR gives me a chance to really rest my body and get everything back together," Jones said. "I can't really speak on it right now. Once I go see the doctors and get a chance to talk to everybody and gather everything together, I'm sure more will come out then."
