NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -The Tennessee Titans got a court order Friday that prohibits suspended cornerback Adam ``Pacman'' Jones from participating in wrestling.
Jones was scheduled to make his debut with Total Nonstop Action Wrestling on Sunday in a pay-per-view event titled ``Hard Justice.''
Citing its contract with Jones, the team said it asked a Tennessee court to intervene in order ``to protect our rights in this instance.''
``All NFL players have language in their contracts that prohibit them from engaging in activities 'which may involve a significant risk of personal injury,''' said a statement from team spokesman Robbie Bohren. ``We certainly believe wrestling to be hazardous, and it is obvious from the player's conduct that he is ignoring this aspect of his agreements with the club.''
The court clerk's office in Williamson County, where the Titans filed their petition, confirmed a judge granted the Titans' request and said the documents would be available later Friday.
The Titans cornerback was suspended by the NFL for a year because of several legal scrapes since being drafted in 2005.
Worrick Robinson, an attorney for Jones, didn't immediately return a phone call seeking comment. Jones' agent, Michael Huyghue, said he couldn't comment until later in the day. TNA Wrestling declined to comment.
On Thursday, Jones teased his TNA appearance with an interview on ESPN2's ``First Take,'' and defended his decision to wrestle.
``I don't know what you all want me to do. Just sit in the house and be miserable all day?'' he said. ``I can't do that. I have to keep my spirits up high. I have a whole family to take care of.''
Jones' latest legal problem emerged just hours after he resolved one of his least serious issues when a judge dismissed three traffic citations.
He still faces felony coercion charges in connection with a Feb. 19 fight and triple-shooting at a Las Vegas strip club. Jones also faces a felony charge of obstruction stemming from a physical altercation in February 2006 with an officer on patrol in Fayetteville, Ga., but no trial date has been set.
