A pretty weird story has just hit the news, and it involves a member of the Minnesota Vikings’ practice squad and his brother, who is also a receiver in the National Football League.
TMZ Sports has video of Buffalo Bills’ wide receiver Zay Jones acting quite bizarrely in a downtown Los Angeles apartment, and wrestling with his brother Cayleb Jones, who spent last year on the practice squad with Minnesota. You can see the video below.
WARNING: Zay Jones is naked in the video, but there’s a blur on the video as well. There are also some shots of blood on the walls of the building.
According to TMZ, Cayleb was trying to keep Zay from jumping out of a 30th-story window.
Zay eventually broke free, and ran in the direction of Cayleb’s gf’s apartment ... you can hear her screaming. We’re told at some point, he ran back out of the apartment, entered a public balcony area and smashed his foot through a window.
Zay then tried to escape, but Cayleb managed to keep him restrained until the police arrived. He is currently being kept under observation in the medical ward of the L.A. County Jail.
I honestly have no idea what the hell transpired that led to all of this, but it would appear that Zay Jones is definitely not well. It also appears that his older brother (Cayleb was undrafted in 2016 while Zay was the Bills’ second round pick in the 2017 Draft) prevented him from doing something really, really terrible to himself. To this point, neither the Bills nor the Vikings have offered any comment on the situation.
Kudos to Cayleb Jones for taking charge of what could have been an incredibly tragic situation. Here’s hoping that Zay Jones gets whatever help he needs.
