No timetable for Ravens defensive tackle Arthur Jones' return

Art Jones will have further testing done on a non-football related illness on Wednesday. - US PRESSWIRE

Arthur Jones is dealing with a non-football related illness and won't play this Thursday against Denver.

The good news is that whatever illness defensive tackle Arthur Jones has isn't life-threatening.

The bad news is that it's unknown when he'll be able to participate in football activities again. After Tuesday's practice, coach John Harbaugh told reporters that Jones would see a specialist on Wednesday to figure out exactly what was going on.


Harbaugh added that Jones could be out a week or indefinitely, but that it was likely not the latter. However, until he takes some tests, his outlook will be unknown to the organization.

Jones gave a statement on twitter:



Without Jones in the lineup against Denver, the Ravens will likely trot out Marcus Spears in his place. Spears in a run-stopping defensive end that can plug in and allow Haloti Ngata to stay at nose tackle.

There's also the option of moving Ngata over to three-technique defensive end and putting Terrence Cody at nose tackle in sub packages as well.
