Pittsburgh Steelers rookie outside linebacker Jarvis Jones has been released from the hospital and tests were negative, according to the team.

Jones suffered a chest injury Saturday night, leaving the game in the fourth quarter and being hospitalized overnight.

The first-round draft pick from Georgia 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.
