PITTSBURGH -- Steelers rookie linebacker Jarvis Jones has been released from the hospital after being treated for a chest injury.

The team said Sunday that tests were negative, but did not say what tests the first-round pick from Georgia underwent or whether he'll play in the preseason finale Thursday at Carolina.

Jones was hurt when he fell on the ball at the end of a third-quarter interception that was overturned against the Kansas Chiefs. He was on the turf for several minutes but walked off on his own power. He was wheeled out of Heinz Field on a stretcher late Saturday night.

Pittsburgh opens the season Sept. 8 at home against Tennessee. Jones has been sharing time with Jason Worilds at right outside linebacker.
