“I will send out an apology, I will,” Jones said. “If he don’t play. But you know and I know that when [Sunday] gets here, all of that is going out the window ... he’s going to be cleared Friday. I promise you, 24 hours before the game.”
“Every hit that Vontaze do, everyone thinks it’s dirty,” he said.
Jones was penalized in Saturday’s loss to Pittsburgh after getting into a confrontation with assistant coach Joey Porter. It prompted a profane postgame rant on Instagram, and more critical comments on Monday.
Pittsburgh will face Denver at 4:40 p.m. on Sunday in the divisional round of the NFL playoffs.
