Miami Dolphins cornerback Byron Jones has urged other NFL players to seek outside consultation before accepting drugs and injections from team doctors.
Jones, who missed the entire 2022 season due to injury, took to Twitter on Saturday to express regret over his career, citing “chronic pain and disabilities.” The CB claimed he is unable to run or jump, though he is not expected to retire.
“Today I can’t run or jump because of my injuries sustained playing this game,” he tweeted in response to the NFL referring to him as “Mr. broad Jump” right before he was drafted in 2015.” DO NOT take the pills they give you. DO NOT take the injections they give you. If you absolutely must, consult an outside doctor to learn the long-term implications.”
ESPN has reported that Jones is not ready to call it quits just yet, in spite of the above. Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald also reports the player is likely to be cut.
The Dolphins made Jones the highest-paid cornerback in the NFL when they signed him to a five-year deal worth $82 million before the 2020 season. The Pro Bowler played 30 games for Miami before missing last term with ankle and Achilles problems.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
