Reshad Jones on leaving game: Never a quitter

Miami Dolphins Pro Bowl safety Reshad Jones is adamant that he has no regrets from Sunday when he decided against returning to his team's 13-6 win over the New York Jets despite playing just 10 first-quarter snaps, Cameron Wolfe of ESPN reports.

"I've never been a quitter," Jones said. "I've been here nine years, playing my ass off for this team, never been a quitter, never will."

The issue came after Jones was taken out by defensive coordinator Matt Burke before the Dolphins' fourth defensive series. Burke was rotating starting defensive backs out of the game to make rookie Minkah Fitzpatrick a full-time player.

Burke put cornerback Bobby McCain on the bench for the first two drives, T.J. McDonald on the bench in the third drive and Jones on the bench in the fourth drive. Jones was the only one who didn't return after being taken out.

Miami head coach Adam Gase said he's not planning to suspend Jones and that Jones will play Sunday at the Green Bay Packers. Gase also said any discipline will be kept internal and warned outsiders not to rush to judgment on Jones because they don't know all the facts.
