Bengals Cornerback Adam Jones: My Ability Is Still At The Top Level

Bengals cornerback Adam Jones is currently on the Reserve/Physically Unable to Perform list, rehabilitating from a neck injury that he suffered last year against the Atlanta Falcons. Jones admits that his "neck is finally 100 percent" now and he claims doctors have already cleared him. Now only that, Jones is pretty confident he'll make a big difference when he returns.

“My ability is still at the top level. You watch the games I played last year and I played tremendously good. I had a touchdown, two interceptions, a couple of fumbles caused, a couple of fumble recoveries, and I only played five games. I just have to stay healthy. I had an injury that was lingering and I can’t wait to get back out there so I can show people.”

Since he's currently on the PUP, which exempts players from the 53-man roster, Jones won't be able to practice with the team until the Monday after the Bengals week six game against the Indianapolis Colts. Since week seven is a bye week, the first game Jones could play is against the Seattle Seahawks on October 30. Cincinnati will be granted a three-week exemption following Jones' activation off the Physically Unable to Perform list, allowed to participate during team meetings. If he's not activated onto the 53-man roster by then, the team will have to decide to either release him, activate him or place him on Injured Reserve.
