Steelers LB Jones released from hospital

The SportsXchange

The Pittsburgh Steelers announced Sunday that rookie linebacker Jarvis Jones was released from a hospital after X-rays taken of his injured chest came back negative.

Jones, the Steelers' first-round draft choice in April, was hospitalized after leaving Saturday night's preseason game against the Kansas City Chiefs with a chest injury.

Jones was injured in the fourth quarter of the 26-20 loss.

The Steelers made Jones the No. 17 overall pick in the draft after linebacker James Harrison left to sign with the Cincinnati Bengals. Jones is competing with Jason Worilds for a starting spot.

Jones had 14.5 sacks, 24.5 tackles for loss and seven forced fumbles last season at Georgia.
