Earlier reports suggested that while X-rays were expected to be taken of his spine, an Ole Miss spokesperson confirmed that he did not lose feeling in his arms or legs after the hit.

The 6-2, 285-pound lineman was a 5-star recruit coming out of high school and was expected to be a big part of the Ole Miss defense this fall. The Rebels don’t have much depth beyond Jones at his position.
