Zaire Jones: Vanderbilt Football Player Suspended After Assault Charge
Zaire Jones, a member of the Vanderbilt football team, has been suspended for “disciplinary reasons.” The decision comes after it was reported that the sophomore was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon stemming from an arrest in Nashville on Aug. 23.
Jones was released on $10,000 bond, according to the Tennesseean.
As a result of the suspension, the sophomore will be ineligible to play in Saturday’s season-opener against Middle Tennessee.
There is no word on how long Jones’ suspension will last.
As a freshman in 2017, the defensive back recorded 11 total tackles, one for a loss, and one forced fumble in limited action.
Kickoff between the Commodores and Blue Raiders on Saturday, Sept. 3 is set for 7:30 p.m. ET on the SEC Network. Vanderbilt then stays home the following weekend to host Nevada, before hitting the road for a big clash with the No. 12 Notre Dame Fighting Irish. The Commodores then cap off the first month of the season by returning home to host South Carolina.
