Titans cornerback, Pacman Jones is accused of spitting on a woman in a nightclub again.
At the end of last season, Titans coach Jeff Fisher instituted a zero tolerance policy for player misconduct on his team. Earlier this year, Pacman Jones got suspended one preseason game for a bar altercation that involved spitting on a woman.
Recently, Titans linebacker Rob Reynolds was suspended for the game against the Texans for allegations that he assaulted his ex-wife. Fisher said that Reynolds wouldn't return to practice until the team finished investigating.
From what I've heard, Jones is just going to get a fine for going out night late and the team having to cover for his missed practice by saying he had "flu-like symptoms." But unlike with Reynolds, he is not going to get suspended immediately pending team investigation of the allegations. They might suspend him next week, according to the Tennessean:
Depending on what Fisher finds out before kickoff, Jones could be suspended, but there were indications Saturday night that the plan was for Jones to play. The possibility remains Fisher could take disciplinary action against Jones starting with next Sunday's game at Jacksonville.
Personally, my favorite line from the article is this one:
"I was told that she saved some spit and put it in a baggie, but I haven't seen it.'
So, zero tolerance means you get suspended immediately pending an investigation if you are a linebacker who mostly plays special teams, but if you are a practice missing, alleged serial nightclub spitter, disciplinary action doesn't kick in until after your team plays against Andre Johnson, the #1 receiver in the league in yards and receptions.
