Steelers' rookie Jarvis Jones goes to hospital

Pittsburgh Steelers rookie outside linebacker Jarvis Jones, the team's first-round draft pick, went to the hospital to have a chest injury examined.

Jones left the game in the fourth quarter after intercepting a pass that was nullified due to a penalty.

Jones is projected to have a major role as the potential replacement for James Harrison.

Jones is competing with Jason Worilds for a starting job at outside linebacker where he would work in tandem with Lamarr Woodley.

According to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Jones will be fine. It sounds like it was a scare more than a long-term injury
