"I'm on a mission, and I'm sticking with my mission to come here and dominate and play at a high level," Jones told reporters Tuesday. "I apologize to the organization, more importantly my teammates and the fans, and I appreciate all of their support, too. It's a small thing, another thing I've got to get through, but I'll get through this and when October comes I'll be fresh, I'll be healthy and I'll be ready to dominate."
Jones, older brother of Cardinals defensive end Chandler, was one of the league's stronger defensive tackles before a rash of injuries, and now, this suspension. The loss will underscore just how weak the Colts seem to be on defense, with a starting line that now features Kendall Langford and David Parry. The team's 2016 fourth-round pick Hassan Ridgeway could have to develop a little ahead of schedule to negate the loss.
Indianapolis finished the 2015 season with the league's eighth-worst rushing defense, allowing more than 120 yards per game.
