After being released from a Los Angeles area hospital Wednesday, Bills receiver Zay Jones has one less thing to worry about following a naked and bloody incident involving his brother, Vikings receiver Cayleb Jones.
According to Buffalo’s 7 Eyewitness News, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office dropped a felony vandalism charge against Zay, citing insufficient evidence.
Zay was arrested Monday at an apartment building in L.A. naked and bloody after attempting to smash through a glass window on the 30th floor.
Instead, he trotted back out and worked a four-pitch sixth inning that lasted about 2 minutes in real time. And after he finally yielded a single to Vogelbach in the seventh, Junis struck out Guillermo Heredia and got Ichiro Suzuki to fly out to cap his dominant performance.
Seattle finished with two hits and left five runners on base.
“We didn’t do a whole lot offensively. Obviously, we didn’t get a hit until later in the game,” Mariners manager Scott Servais said. “They just beat us. We had a bad night.”
Last season, Washington was led on the ground by Samaje Perine, but the former Oklahoma star rushed for just 603 yards on 175 carries (3.4 yards per carry average) with just one rushing touchdown. Chris Thompson, a great pass-catching running back, also proved unable to maintain an every-down role.
The Redskins pick 13th overall in this year’s draft, meaning they likely will be out of the Saquan Barkley sweepstakes. But they could try to move up and get the Penn State star.
Second-round running back options for Washington likely will consist of USC star Ronald Jones II, who rushed for 1,550 yards last year, and Georgia stars Sony Michel and Nick Chubb. LSU’s Derrius Guice could also be available.
The Redskins moved away from quarterback Kirk Cousins this offseason, trading for Alex Smith to replace him. While Smith has proven capable of moving NFL offenses, the Redskins will still need a solid running game to keep defenses honest.
