Defensive tackle Arthur Jones made his first career start Saturday, finishing with just one tackle in the Ravens’ 20-14 victory over the Cleveland Browns.
“It felt amazing to run out of that tunnel with my team,” Jones said. “It was a special moment, and it couldn’t have been a better Christmas.”
Starting in place of injured defensive end Cory Redding (right ankle), Jones had a few chances to make plays but was unable to follow through. Jones said refining his play will be priority No. 1 this week.
“It wasn’t perfect, but we got the win. That was the most important part about it,” he said. “Each week, I’m just going to keep getting better. Great players come and play in December, and I want to be known as a great player, and I’m just going to keep working hard every single day. These next couple days off, I’m going to get my body right and get lifts in and get a jump on Cincinnati.”
