Patriots DE Chandler Jones had 'medical emergency' on Sunday

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- New England Patriots defensive end Chandler Jones, who led the team with 12.5 sacks during the regular season, was hospitalized Sunday for an undisclosed issue after he reportedly visited the Foxborough Police Department, where dispatch records show he was evaluated by five officers.

Jones showed up at the police department with a "medical emergency" at 7:42 a.m. Sunday before being transported to Norwood Hospital shortly after 8 a.m.

In a statement, the Patriots said, " Chandler Jones was admitted to the hospital on Sunday and released that day. He reported to work on time Monday morning and has participated in all meetings and practices since then."

When contacted by the Boston Herald, Foxborough Police Chief Edward T. O'Leary denied that his department and officers had any dealing with Jones, according to the newspaper.

According to the newspaper, the records also show that a Foxborough officer modified the dispatch record of the emergency call at 3:02 p.m. Tuesday, shortly after the Herald called O'Leary and received a copy of the dispatch call records.

O'Leary later explained to the Herald that medical information was deleted from the record, and that he initially said his department and officers had no dealing with Jones because "it was a medical call" and he "didn't look at it as a police specific call."
