Jarvis Jones Injury: Steelers linebacker suffered chest injury in loss to Chiefs

Jason Bridge-USA TODAY Sports

Early reports confirmed he will be further evaluated at an area hospital for a chest injury he suffered in the second half of Saturday's game.

Steelers PR manager Burt Lauten confirmed earlier Steelers rookie outside linebacker Jarvis Jones is at a hospital being evaluated for a chest injury he suffered in Pittsburgh's 26-20 (OT) loss to the Chiefs Saturday.

Jones was returning an interception that was later overturned on review.

Amid an electrifying preseason campaign, Jones's injury came on perhaps his best highlight yet. While the play was overruled, he showed the kind of playmaking ability the Steelers wanted when they selected him in the first round of the 2013 NFL Draft.

Oddly, the last time the Steelers played the Chiefs, quarterback Ben Roethlisberger left the game with a chest injury and was evaluated at an area hospital.

No word is available early Sunday morning as to the extent of the injury, but as the rest of Steeler Nation holds its breath waiting for news, so shall we.
