Auburn cornerback Jonathan Jones 'glad to get back in the groove of things'

AUBURN, Ala. — Jonathan Jones was confident. Auburn’s sophomore corner recalled his first tackle of the season, which he made in the first quarter of last week’s 45-10 romp over Florida Atlantic. On the play, 6-foot-4, 230-pound Owl tight end Nexon Dorvilus made a beeline for Jones, towering over the 5-foot-10, 180-pound defender on a screen pass. It didn’t matter, as Jones shed the block and dropped Florida Atlantic wide receiver Daniel McKinney for a 1-yard loss.
