EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones expressed regret for taking off his mask in a closed New York City bar last weekend.

Jones spoke for the first time since a video of the incident was released and did his best to avoid discussing it.

The situation left some wondering if he had violated NFL protocols for dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic.

Jones, injured running back Saquon Barkley and receiver Sterling Shepard and others had dinner in the private room of a city restaurant.

They went to the bar after dinner. Jones took off his mask there.
