Doctors clear Jarvis Jones

Despite Jarvis Jones’ performance over the past two seasons at Georgia, his NFL draft stock was in question due to a near-career-ending injury suffered while playing for USC in 2010.

But those questions should be resolved thanks to a report from NFL.com’s Gil Brandt

Each team will still want to learn more about the injury and its potential long-term impact on Jones’ ability to play. But this is clearly a step in the right direction.

Jones was obviously cleared to play by the medical staff at Georgia and, according to Brandt, has been cleared by more doctors.

Presumably Jones will go through more medical testing at the combine along with everyone else, so teams will have multiple reports to lean on if they’re concerned about his health.

In the end, Jones’ health will likely be a non-issue.
