Chandler Jones was hospitalized Sunday, practiced Monday

AP

Patriots defensive end Chandler Jones suffered some type of health emergency serious enough that he was hospitalized on Sunday, but he was back at practice on Monday.

Chandler Jones was admitted to the hospital on Sunday and released that day,” the Patriots confirmed in a statement to the Boston Herald. “He reported to work on time Monday morning and has participated in all meetings and practices since then.”

The Herald reports that Jones was rushed to the hospital on Sunday morning after he went to the Foxboro Police Department with a medical emergency, but police refused to say what the emergency was. Police also deleted information about the Jones situation from their dispatch records.

Foxboro Police Chief Edward T. O’Leary initially denied that his department had any dealing with Jones but then admitted later that at least five officers were involved in evaluating Jones in a parking lot at the police station. He said he had denied it earlier “because it was a medical call. I didn’t look at it as a police specific call.”

There has been no reporting about the nature of Jones’ medical emergency, other than that it did not prevent Jones from practicing.

  1. Glad he’s OK but hard to believe they could hide something like this. Ridiculous actually.

  2. “Foxboro Police Chief Edward T. O’Leary initially denied that his department had any dealing with Jones but then admitted later that at least five officers were involved in evaluating Jones in a parking lot at the police station.”

    Wow, even the police are liars in New England. I wish I could say I’m surprised but judging by the things Pats fans say on the internet sadly I’m not.
    Good luck to Jones, hopefully it’s nothing too serious.

  3. I find it disturbing that they erased all dispatch records.

    Sure, reporters would ask questions but all they had to say was what they did say, “He had a health issue and was taken to the hospital. Nothing more to it.”

    They just made a non-issue look like a coordinated cover-up and now people are going to wonder what else they are covering up.

  4. Why aren’t there more Bills players in the news? The offseason is their time to shine.

    Dispatch records are public, I believe, so what good is saying “he had a health issue” if a reporter can just read the record?

    Did I misread the article? Did it say Peyton Manning was hospitalized? I thought it said Chandler Jones…

    I wish we could say you are a normal human being but based on the diarrhea that comes out of your mouth, sadly we can not.

  8. Let’s tie up the three Patriots controversies today in one neat, tidy package. While taking part in a toga party the other night, Chandler Jones and Rob Gronkowski got into an epic fight over Mandy Pepperidge. Bill Belichick jumped in to break up the fight, sustaining a black eye in the process. Nothing more to see here. On to the Chiefs, with or without Gronk.

  9. Look at all these giants fans commenting about a player’s health issue….while sitting on the coach with nothing to do since they didn’t make the playoffs. Again. No coach, no playoffs, the dirtiest player in the league..It’s always the losers who mouth off.

    factless is no position to question the credibility of what anyone says on the internet. Haven’t seen a Pats fan say a self made man wasn’t one or claim to be a Giants fan (but not post on Giants threads) just to name a couple of his more glaring falsehoods

  11. Why would anyone go to the police station with a medical emergency??

    The ONLY logical reason to do so would be proximity. But if it’s an ACTUAL medical emergency then you probably want to get to and actual doctor as quickly as possible. So, again, why on earth would anyone go to the police station with a medical emergency?

  12. The saddest thing about this is the amount of time our hurt Giants, Steelers, and Canucks fans must spend refreshing there site looking for any Pats article at all on which to comment.

    Think of all the good you could do if you put that towards something useful.

    I honestly can’t imagine spending so much time fixated on a team other than the one I root for. I guess that makes you all big Pats fans.

    Bill bellichick went to a presser w a black eye. Maybe they got in a scuffle
    ———————————-

    Jones’ incident was yesterday morning and he was at practice yesterday as was Belichick without the black eye. BB would have to be pretty tough to have beaten Jones so badly that he sent him to the hospital the morning before. lol

    Jones’ home is a block from the police station so yes, logical

  14. The Foxboro police and fire departments are located in the same building, share the same dispatch and parking lots. This wasn’t a “police” matter but was handled by the fire dept EMS.
    But lets not have all the facts ruin a “good” story.

  15. “Why would anyone go to the police station with a medical emergency??

    The ONLY logical reason to do so would be proximity.”

    He lives a 4 minute walk from the station and there are EMTs on site there as well.

  16. Only the Pats haters would try and act like someone voluntarily going to get medical help was some sort of bad thing.

    SMH

  17. “He had a panic attack at the thought of being pushed to the ground the way Eric Fisher beat down J.J. Watt.”

    JJ Watt disappears in every big game, why should the one against the Chiefs be any different ?

    And as to your statement that’s laughable. Jones is a World Champion, the Chiefs haven’t even sniffed the playoffs in years. If anyone’s afraid it’s on the KC side of things.

  18. ……..but lets really wait for ole Morts’ insider information….
    garbage to feed the trolls – open wide vancourverbra and factlessman

  19. Doublebase says: Needed someone to administer narcian? Ah, EMS worker? BINGO lol you called it bro! Your post is 99.9% correct. That’s the first thing that popped into my mind, halfway into reading the report… This report- has narcian written all over it! Lol lol lol Only in New England lol only in New England… Must run in the Jones family? At lest Chandler went to the Cops, unlike his Brother…

    Why erase the dispatch records? This situation stinks of that typical NE stench. What are u hiding?
    ——————————

    The same internet that led me to this article also led me to the Herald story which I read before posting. The dispatch record was altered to delete medical information the record itself was not deleted:

    “O’Leary said medical information was deleted from the record.
    “It’s protected information on a medical condition,” said O’Leary. “Officers get training in making sure it’s information that’s not to be disclosed. I trust my lieutenant to know the difference.””

    Imagine that, reading the source material before posting. This interweb thing may catch on yet

  21. First of all Narcan is administered, NOT Narcian. Secondly if one needed Narcan one would not be able to walk anywhere . Thirdly federal law prohibits any medical information from being released that’s why the dispatch was erased. My God, the ignorance of some posters is astounding.

  22. Dang it’s funny reading the “spouting off” from fans of teams who will be watching football from home this weekend! Especially the Giants and Bills fans! What’s funnier is that many of these guys were the same ones predicting the Patriots would lead the league in fumbles and interceptions. One might ask “are these clowns ever correct about anything?”

  23. Let’s see if the media will run with this story since it’s a Patriot. Chandler had a medical emergency, whatever it is is nobody’s business. Maybe he had an asthma attack. Who knows? He seeked the help from the cops because it’s near his house. Something fishy? Yah… Go to the cops if you’re breaking the law. Something stupid haters will do.
    Hopefully he’s good to go for the game.

  24. What goes hand in hand with Giants post season? just the frustration of failure Right Justin?

  25. It was just a rave with the Gronk-meister. A pill popping party to get the divisional round started off right!
