Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Zay Jones was arrested by the Jacksonville (Florida) Sheriff’s Office on Monday. He was charged with one count of misdemeanor domestic battery causing bodily harm, according to JSO jail records.

Jones was booked just after 6 p.m. ET Monday evening and is set to appear in court at 9 a.m. ET Tuesday, according to jail records.

‘We are aware of the situation and are in the midst of gathering information. We will have no further comment at this time,’ the Jaguars said in a statement released by the team.

Jones, 28, signed with the Jaguars during the 2022 offseason. Last year, Jones caught 82 passes for 823 yards and five touchdowns.

This season, Jones has played in just three games due to a nagging knee injury that has cost him the last four games of the season along with Weeks 3 and 4 due after first suffering the injury during the team’s Week 2 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs.
