Two weeks ago, the Arkansas defense gave up 65 points to Auburn . Last week, the Arkansas defense gave up 512 yards to Ole Miss . Safe to say the Arkansas defense could use some help.
As of this morning, it's equally safe to say Razorback defensive tackle DeQuinta Jones is not the person offering that help :
Arkansas defensive tackle D.D. Jones has been arrested for possession of a controlled substance, according to the Washington County Jail Log ...The Hogs will probably be fine without Jones's services this week as they not only take on toothless Vanderbilt , they take on toothless Vanderbilt in toothless Vanderbilt's first week under new offensive coordinator Des Kitchings .
According to the arrest report, Jones was pulled over for a traffic stop by an officer at 12:37 in the morning ... The officer made a traffic stop and detected “an overwhelming odor of marijuana” coming from inside the vehicle ...
The officer asked Jones if he could look in his pockets and Jones, according to the report, asked why. The officer felt a soft bundle in his right front pocket and asked Jones how much marijuana he had. Jones said he had “about a quarter.”
The plastic bag, which the report said contained 8.7 grams of marijuana, was removed from his pocket and Jones was placed under arrest.
But if the arrest costs Jones any more time, it'll hurt. The following week brings a trip to South Carolina , and Jones to date has been one of Arkansas's most productive defensive linemn, starting all seven games and ranking ninth on the defense in tackles from his defensive tackle spot. After bring gashed with Jones by Cameron Newton and Jeremiah Masoli , leaving him at home is not how the Hogs want to face Marcus Lattimore and Co. on their visit to Columbia.
