In the video, Jones (in the front wearing a dark jacket) and a friend confront two other men, who proceed to punch them and wrestle them to the ground. Both sides have since said the other started it.
Woodrow “Woody” Glass, the Jones family’s lawyer, told the Daily that Dr. Perry Brooks spent four hours performing surgery on Jones’ left eye.
“Dr. Brooks came out of that surgery saying he’s extraordinarily lucky at this point, that he’s lucky he didn’t lose the eye altogether,” Glass told the Daily. “And so he was able to do some things surgically to rebuild that orbital socket and thinks everything is eventually going to come back to normal, but it’s going to take a while for him to fully recover.”
The viral fight was not initially reported to local cops, but the Norman Police Department said Monday that it is investigating the incident as aggravated assault and battery, according to the Daily. No one has been arrested.
Cops did not publicly identify the suspects, but a man named Braden Brown said on Twitter that he was one of two brothers seen beating up Jones and his friend. Brown said he and his brother are trained mixed martial arts fighters.
Glass, Jones’ attorney, said his client was trying to deescalate the fight, the Daily reported. On Twitter, Brown said, “They gave us no options unfortunately. We showed restraint.”
Though listed as a receiver, Jones has no career catches, but he did appear in every game as the team’s holder. He won the sarcastic Peter Mortell Holder of the Year Award in 2020.

Frank Warren Confirms Daniel Dubois Return for May 2021
After a dreadful ring outing against Joe Joyce, Daniel Dubois is finally set to make his return to the ring. The ‘Dynamite’ suffered severe eye injuries in this epic British clash and took a knee in round 10 of the fight.
This move garnered vast criticism, but a huge chunk of boxing enthusiasts went in Dubois’s favor. They believed that he saved his career by not taking further damage.
The fight took place back in November 2020, and Dubois has overcome the same. His promoter Frank Warren recently confirmed his return, giving a timeline for May 2021.
Michael Benson reported this on his Twitter handle and wrote:
“Frank Warren has confirmed Daniel Dubois has now been given the all-clear on his eye injury and will return to the ring in May.” (h/t The Lowdown)
Ever since that loss, the 23-year-old hasn’t begun his grilling workouts. He paid several visits to an eye specialist to examine the damage and has finally received some positive news.
Prior to confronting Joyce, the ‘Dynamite’ was cited as one of the best heavyweight prospects. His fans even considered him as the Mike Tyson of the heavyweight era. However, his dream of becoming the ultimate heavyweight world champion got shattered with that loss.
Joe Joyce overpowered his foe, Dubois, every single second in that contest. But the latter took it on his chin and moved forward.
