Jones Says He Didn’t Throw a Punch Sunday vs Texans

The Nashville City Paper today talks about Jason Jones and the fight with the Texans from Sunday:

After being ejected from Sunday’s 34-31 loss to the Houston Texans, Tennessee Titans defensive tackle Jason Jones will be hearing from the NFL office sometime this week. To what extent the league office will make its voice heard in the form of fines and/or suspensions depends on whether or not Jones’ story that he did not punch a Texans player will be believed. Jones was ejected from the game in the fourth quarter for allegedly punching a player on the Texans sideline after a scuffle between Titans cornerback Cortland Finnegan and Texans receiver Andre Johnson spilled over into the bench area but he insists, however, that he did not throw a punch in the melee, as referee Walt Coleman said he did. “I was under control. It’s not like I went over there to stir up anything. I saw it. I stopped, and I saw them fighting,” Jones explained. “Once they got to their sideline, all the blue jerseys got on top of him. I went over there. I pushed one guy and the ref ejected me right away. He pulled me away and put me back on the field, while everything was still going on, he ejected me. I didn’t throw a punch. I just pushed a guy.”
