Update: Tests on Jones have returned negative results, which is a positive sign.
CBS Sports reporter Jason La Canfora tweeted Sunday morning Steelers rookie outside linebacker Jarvis Jones spent the night in a hospital but tests done on an injury to his chest came back inconclusive.

That could mean several things, depending on what, exactly, they were testing.
Jones suffered the injury after being tackled from behind following an interception. Jones appeared to land on the ball as he was taken to the ground. The interception was negated on a penalty, and Jones - who had played a huge amount of the game - took a while to get to his feet. He was ultimately taken by ambulance to an area hospital.
It was a scary moment in the game, but other reports indicate everything that has been done was out of precautionary reasons. No long-term status is known at this point.
