Las Vegas Raiders defensive end Chandler Jones claims he was taken to a hospital "against my will," according to the most recent post in a spate of uncharacteristic social media activity from the 11-year NFL veteran.
The Raiders placed Jones on the non-football illness list last week due to what the team has described as a personal matter. He has been away from the team since he began sharing accusations about the Raiders, owner Mark Davis, general manager Dave Ziegler and coach Josh McDaniels during Labor Day weekend.
On Monday night, Jones shared photos of journal entries and an apparent statement of "patient rights" via X, formerly known as Twitter. He captioned the post, "First day out but I'm still aligned," implying he was released from the facility that day.
His journal entries describe the experience of being transported to Southern Hills Hospital in Las Vegas by "5 to 7" Las Vegas Fire Department officials who told him he had been put on a "court hold" by the police department. He eventually landed at a behavioral health facility last week, according to his writing.
