Patriots DB Jones, ex-Gilman star, out for season with torn ACL
The prospects for New England Patriots second-year defensive back Cyrus Jones surviving today's roster cut took a major hit when he suffered a torn ACL and a partially torn meniscus during Thursday's preseason finale against the New York Giants and will miss the entire season. Jones, the former Gilman star who went on to win a national championship at Alabama and a Super Bowl title with the Patriots, got his feet tangled while defending a deep pass along the sideline to Travis Rudolph and tumbled to the turf. He needed the help of two trainers to get off the field. The Patriots originally had high hopes for Jones, their second-round draft pick in 2016 (60th overall), but he struggled throughout last season, with fumble problems on special teams. He was a healthy scratch for five of New England's final six games, including the entire postseason run.
