Beef jerky fuels Steelers' Jacoby Jones during game prep


PITTSBURGH -- While talking to Jacoby Jones by his locker, he was holding a bag of beef jerky.

What's that about?

The Steelers' kick returner says he loves it. Snacks on it throughout the day. From tobacco to coffee, some players have habits to help stay stimulated in team meetings.

Jones has the jerky.

"Protein, baby," he said.

Jones, a nine-year veteran picked up off waivers Nov. 6, is averaging 20.8 yards per kickoff return in four attempts.
