According to Jim Owczarski of the Enquirer, the Bengals will be without one of its starting cornerbacks in Week 1 against the Ravens.
#Bengals corner Adam Jones meets with us - says he accepts the 1 game suspension.— Jim Owczarski (@JimOwczarski) July 27, 2017
Jones was suspended for the first game of the season by the NFL for violating the League's conduct policy. Jones was arrested in early January, 2017 in Cincinnati. He would go on to plead guilty to a misdemeanor charge for disorderly conduct.
Jones opting to accept the suspension means that he will not be suiting up for the season opener against the Ravens. His spot will be fought for between Darqueze Dennard and William Jackson III. Both of whom are former first round picks.
This all comes after reports surfaced that Jones would appeal the suspension.

Jones had 66 tackles and one interception in 2016. In his 12 year career, Jones has 476 tackles, 15 interceptions and three sacks. His presence will be missed in the Bengals Week 1 lineup, and it may give the Ravens an advantage in the passing game.
