Baltimore Sun’s BEST party in 2 weeks

Jacoby Jones makes first public comments since incident, saying 'I take responsibility'

Ravens wide receiver Jacoby Jones made his first public comments Wednesday night since reports he was involved in an altercation early Monday morning while celebrating teammate Bryant McKinnie's birthday. 

On his radio show with 105.7 The Fan, Jones briefly addressed the situation.

"I'm going to take the responsibility that I was in the wrong place at the wrong time," Jones said. "There was no altercation. There's nothing wrong. I did nothing wrong but I take responsibility for being in wrong place at the wrong time. Enough said. I apologize to my teammates and everybody." 

Asked about a meeting that he had with coach John Harbaugh, Jones said: "We're fine. Everything is good." 

Hours after the Ravens defeated the Houston Texans, 30-9, at M&T Bank Stadium, members of the Ravens joined McKinnie to celebrate his 34th birthday at Opera Ultra Lounge in Washington. After leaving the lounge, Jones was involved in an incident on a party bus, according to TMZ. 

Jones was hit in the head with a bottle, according to sources, but refused treatment. He was at the team facility and participated in all activities Monday. There were no arrests as a result of the incident. 

Jones, who continues to rehab a sprained knee, is listed as out for Sunday's game against the  Buffalo Bills. He has not played since the Sept. 5 season opener against the Denver Broncos, when he was injured in a collision with rookie Brynden Trawick.
