Steelers rookie OLB Jarvis Jones released from hospital
Steelers linebacker Jarvis Jones has been released the from the hospital a day after suffering a chest injury.
There's no word on how much time, if any, Jones is expected to miss.
The Steelers used the 17th pick in the April Draft on Jones, after releasing James Harrison earlier in the offseason. The team needed to find a pass rusher to fill that void, and Jones fit the build, registering 14.5 sacks, 24.5 tackles for loss, and seven forced fumbles in his final season at Georgia.
After a slow start in training camp, Jones had played well in recent weeks and appeared to be pushing Jason Worilds for the starting job.
Early in camp, Steelers veteran linebacker Larry Foote told CBSSports.com that Jones' path to playing time was simple.
"It's wide open," Foote said of the competition between Jones and Worilds. "In preseason and early in the season, if you're sacking the quarterback, you gotta play. Coach can't keep you off the field if you're sacking. So if Worilds wants to keep Jarvis behind him, you got to sack the quarterback."
