Jacoby Jones leaves with possible knee injury after collision with another Raven

Jacoby Jones AP

The last time Ravens wide receiver Jacoby Jones was in Denver, he made a game-tying catch late in the fourth quarter to set up a double-overtime way that helped push the Ravens to the Super Bowl.

He may not be around for the fourth quarter this time.

Jones signaled for a fair catch in the second quarter and was watching the kick come down when he was run into by teammate Brynden Trawick, who was tasked with blocking for Jones on the play. It was a rough looking collision and Jones appeared to grab his right knee, which was planted at the time of impact, immediately upon going to the turf.

Jones slowly walked to the locker room with the team’s medical staff a short time later, clearly favoring the knee as he made his way to the back. Michelle Tafoya of NBC reported from the game that he’ll be undergoing evaluation with no word about the chances he’ll retun.

In addition to his role as the team’s top kick returner, Jones was playing a regular on offense as a receiver this season. If he can’t return, the Ravens will have to look to rookie Marlon Brown for help if they want to go with three wide receivers.

    At least the Buttfumble didn’t seriously hurt anybody…

    An inexperienced free safety just injured himself and his star teammate. Note to Ozzie: The Titans just cut special teams standout/free safety Corey Lynch for some baffling reason.

    Hitting a defenseless receiver fine coming? Or is it “targeting”?

    That rookie will be on the bench for quite a while, methinks.

    jacoby is the ex Texan that is a choke artist, he took himself out of the game for Ravens fans so they wouldnt see it in week one. On the other hand Leach is a MFn ex Texan beast and should be featured more in any offense that wants to win.

    Oh no! Who’s going to make the big kick returns now, so that when Flacco disappears in the second half of the game he can get voted MVP anyway!

    Lets vote on who is the biggest idiot of the game. Jones ‘s team mate or the Denver LB that dropped the ball before crossing the goal line on his pick.?

    That was unfortunate, the guy that hit JJ was going to hit a guy that had already pulled up on the play. I do want to know what the penalty against Denver was on that play, illegal touching?
