NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Nov. 1, 2006) -- The Tennessee Titans suspended cornerback Adam "Pacman" Jones for one game as punishment for his long list of off-field incidents. Jones won't play Sunday against Jacksonville.
Coach Jeff Fisher said after practice that Jones also will be fined what he called "significant financial ... considerations." Jones also faces potential punishment from the NFL for violating its personal conduct policy.
Fisher said Jones was very concerned and will make a statement later this week.
"This is the defining moment in his career," Fisher said.
Jones' agent, Michael Huyghue, said they hadn't been officially notified and had no immediate comment.
The latest police problem for Jones, the Titans' top draft pick in 2005 and the sixth choice overall, occurred before last week's 28-22 victory over Houston in which he intercepted his first pass and returned a punt 53 yards for a touchdown.
He wasn't cited for misdemeanor assault until the day before the game, and Fisher, who called the incident "very disturbing," took extra time to discuss how to punish Jones. Fisher already had suspended linebacker Rob Reynolds from last week's game for a domestic violence incident.
Krystal Webb, 21, had Jones cited for an incident at a private party last Thursday at a nightclub. The police report states that Jones became verbally abusive and "spit a huge amount of mucus on Ms. Webb's face and hair, which she preserved for evidence."
Jones is scheduled to be booked Nov. 17 on the charge.
This is the second time Jones has been accused of spitting on a woman at a club this year. He was arrested at a Murfreesboro nightclub on misdemeanor charges of public drunkenness and disorderly conduct hours after the Titans broke camp, and Fisher did not play him in an exhibition.
He is due in court on Jan. 11 on those charges. Charges Jones faced from a July 2005 incident at a club were dismissed earlier this year.
