The Patriots are remaining quiet about Chandler Jones’ brief hospitalization on Sunday but some details have been revealed through police dispatch calls.
The Patriots released a statement saying, "Chandler Jones was admitted to the hospital Sunday and released that day. He reported to work on Monday morning and has participated in all meetings and practices since then."
According to police dispatch recordings, Jones showed up at the police station Sunday morning in a "confused" state. Police logs show police and firefighters gave Jones a medical evaluation then brought him by ambulance to Norwood Hospital.
Dispatch recordings from an officer who went to lock up Jones’ home mention that he was "definitely involved in Class D." Class D can refer to a category of drugs that includes marijuana.
Both the Patriots and police did not offer any explanation as to why Jones went to the police station and was then hospitalized. At practice Tuesday, Jones’ teammates offered their support.
"Chandler’s got a lot of support in this locker room and he’s a great football player and I’m excited to see what he does this week," said Patriots wide receiver Danny Amendola.
At a meeting Wednesday night, Foxborough’s police chief and town manager told 7News this a "sensitive situation" and are talking to counsel. They hope to issue a statement on Thursday.
