For the first time since his medical emergency and trip to the hospital on Sunday, New England Patriots defensive end Chandler Jones spoke to the media. Jones addressed the issue on Thursday in the locker room for a short period of time, apologizing for his actions and turning his focus to Saturday's game against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Via the Boston Herald:
Jones was asked if he is in any trouble with regards to substance issues, but Jones didn't exactly answer the question, saying, "I understand the question, but right now, my main focus is trying to hone in on Kansas City."
According to the report from the Foxborough Police Department, Jones arrived at the police station shirtless and was "looking for help and assistance." He also went down to his knees, appearing to surrender and was "actively worshiping and praying."
It certainly sounds like Jones was confused and unaware of what was happening. He was asked whether he was scared for his life on Sunday morning, but as he did for other questions, Jones deflected and remains focused on "the biggest game" of his life.
Belichick took a similar approach with regards to Jones' situation earlier on Thursday, saying "we'll find out on Saturday" how he'll be used. Jones has practiced every day this week and appears on track to play against the Chiefs.
