During Kansas City's opening possession in the third quarter, it appeared Bengals cornerback Adam Jones walked off the field clutching his elbow -- the same elbow he injured last week against the Baltimore Ravens. Once trainers examined Jones elbow, as well as a groin he injured (per Bengals.com), the team announced he was questionable to return.
Once he began adjusting his ball cap on the sideline, it was clear Jones wasn't going to play. Dennard replaced him and immediately allowed a 33-yard reception to Jeremy Maclin.
Bengals radio analyst Dave Lapham, who conducts postgame interviews, essentially received a virtual thumbs up from Jones as the veteran cornerback left (you couldn't hear what was said but Lapham gave an optimistic impression for next week when the Bengals host Seattle).
Jones originally injured his elbow during a kick return last week against the Ravens. Despite showing intense pain after the play, Jones, who sat during practice on Wednesday, didn't miss a defensive snap that week. Some questioned his likeliness to play this week and it seems he may have pushed himself too far.
