Another current NFL player has been arrested on accusations of domestic violence. The Associated Press has reported that Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Zay Jones was reportedly arrested on Nov. 11 on a charge of domestic battery causing bodily harm, according to Duval County Jail records.
The Jaguars released a statement acknowledging the arrest.
“We are aware of the situation and are in the midst of gathering information. We will have no further comment at this time.”
Jones, whose full name is Isaiah Avery Jones, is currently nursing a knee injury and has not played in the last four games. For the current season, the lingering knee soreness has caused him to miss six out of the previous seven games. He has caught eight passes for 78 yards while scoring two touchdowns. He’s been in the NFL for seven years, playing for the Jaguars, Buffalo Bills, Oakland, and Las Vegas Raiders. Over those years, he had 261 catches for 2,785 yards and 59 touchdowns.
