One day after Bengals cornerback Adam ‘Pacman’ Jones said Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown was faking his concussion, he doubled down on his statement on Inside the NFL.
“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.
