UPDATE (4:20 p.m. ET): New England Patriots defensive end Chandler Jones’ bad reaction was caused by synthetic marijuana, a source with knowledge of the situation told The Boston Globe’s Chris Gasper.
ORIGINAL STORY: It appears initial rumors surrounding Chandler Jones’ trip to Norwood Hospital on Sunday morning might have been exaggerated.
Jones had a “bad reaction to a substance he put in his body,” a source familiar with the situation told The Boston Globe’s Chris Gasper. The New England Patriots defensive end “did not overdose on a drug such as cocaine or heroin,” the source told Gasper.
Jones reportedly walked to the Foxboro, Mass., police station from his house and was then transferred to the hospital.
Jones practiced Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday this week. He was lifting weights at Gillette Stadium at 6:30 a.m. Monday, Gasper’s source said.
