FRANKLIN â<80>” Suspended Titans cornerback Pacman Jones will be able to take part in Sunday nightâ<80><99>s Total Nonstop Action Wrestling event, but not as a wrestler.
A Williamson County judge this morning approved modifications to a restraining order the Titans obtained on Friday to keep Jones out of the ring.
The modifications allow Jones to participate in TNA events, but restrict him from being involved in any physical activity.
â<80><9c>Our concern was always protecting our legitimate interest under the contract, and that is avoiding any risk of significant injury to him,â<80> said Steve Underwood, chief operating officer for the Titans.
â<80><9c>As long as that interest is protected, we are comfortable with whatever his level of participation is. â<80>¦ Our rights have been protected with the injunction.â<80>
Lawyers for the Titans, TNA and Jones were in court here on Saturday, one day after the team obtained the restraining order. The three parties then worked late into Friday night to hammer out modifications and presented them to the judge this morning.
Jones is scheduled to participate in Sunday nightâ<80><99>s â<80><9c>Hard Justiceâ<80> in Orlando, Fla., which will be televised on pay-per-view.
Jones, who is not being paid by the Titans while serving a yearlong NFL suspension for an accumulation of off-field problems, signed a contract with TNA earlier this week.
