The Bengals cornerback promised he would say sorry for accusing Brown of faking a concussion in Saturday night's playoff game if Brown did not play vs. the Broncos on Sunday. Brown was ruled out on Friday.
Jones was also fined $28,940 for unsportsmanlike conduct after he made contact with an official as Brown was laying on the turf.
His Instagram apology was made fairly quickly after the Steelers' announcement, so if nothing else, one has to give Jones credit for delivering his condolences. It probably won't endear him to any Steelers fans in the future, but Jones doesn't seem too worried about that.
