Steelers' rookie Jarvis Jones became the second AFC North linebacker in two weeks to be sent to the hospital with a chest injury. The injury came in the fourth quarter Saturday against the Kansas City Chiefs when Jones intercepted a pass that was later called back on a penalty.

The rookie linebacker from Georgia was originally listed as questionable to return, but wound up being taken to a local hospital for tests.

The team confirmed Jones was being evaluated for a chest injury but did not indicate the type of injury or the severity.

Pittsburgh Press-Gazette reporter Ed Bouchette reported on Twitter that the Steelers were just be cautious by sending Jones to the hospital.

Jones was drafted in the first round this past April and was expected inject some life into the Steelers' aging defense. Ironically, the injury came on a play that may have been his best of the preseason so far.
