Offensive lineman was on PUP list
Jones, a fourth-round draft pick in 2001, hadn't played this season following offseason knee surgery. Last year, he started 11 games at right tackle.
Jones, 24, was arrested Tuesday. He pleaded innocent to charges of assault with intent to maim, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and mayhem -- the latter a felony punishable by up to 20 years in jail.
The roommate, Mark Paul, said Jones threw a cup of hot water on him, hitting him in the face and shoulder. Paul was treated for second and third degree burns.
Jones and Paul shared the apartment with former Patriots running back J.R. Redmond, and Paul earned money as the player's personal assistant.
