That was quick.
Adam Jones' trial to answer for an assault charge was set to begin Monday morning.
However, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer, Jones' case was continued with no known date at this point.
Pacman Jones case continued. No new date yet but I bet it's after the end of the football season. @cincienquirer— Kimball Perry (@kimballperry) August 19, 2013
If the case is continued until after the season, the league likely won't respond with a punishment for Jones until the legal process has worked itself out. That being the case, the Bengals won't have to plan for losing Jones for any period of time and keep a sixth cornerback.
