There are many questions surrounding Jones' health, namely a concern with spinal stenosis. NFL Network draft analyst Mike Mayock spoke to that issue this week.
“Unfortunately, there is nothing he can do to alleviate the medical concerns,” Mayock told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution on Monday. according to the paper. “He either has stenosis or he doesn't, and it's either continuing to narrow his spine or it isn't. Coming out of the combine in a month or so, we'll have a better idea of that when teams begin to share all that medical information.”
Jones was a consensus first team All-American in 2012 and projected to be the top outside linebacker selected in April's NFL Draft.
Whether his bowing out of the combine is related to his back issue is unclear. Jones' draft status may take a hit due to growing medical concerns.
