``It doesn't appear to me to be anything of substance,'' Fisher said. ``I'm not going to dwell on it. If I get more information, I'll deal with it in-house.''
Metro Nashville Police Department public relations assistant Amy Raines said officers were not involved in investigating any incident between Jones and Haynesworth over the weekend.
Jones has been suspended for the season for violating the league's personal conduct policy, and commissioner Roger Goodell turned down his appeal for leniency earlier this month.
The cornerback agreed to a plea deal last week that will get him probation in a Las Vegas strip club triple shooting in return for his testimony. The deal turned two felony counts of coercion into a gross misdemeanor for conspiracy to commit disorderly conduct.
Jones' attorney, Manny Arora, did not immediately return a telephone message left by The Associated Press. Haynesworth's agent also did not respond to e-mail messages.
Haynesworth has missed two games with a sore right hamstring. The NFL suspended him for five games last season for stomping on the head of Dallas center Andre Gurode. Haynesworth has been the Titans' most dominant lineman this season with a career-high five sacks.
On the day Jones met with Goodell in New York asking for his suspension to be shortened, Haynesworth talked about how the cornerback wouldn't return and play immediately.
``Everybody on the field has earned their way. Nothing is given. We've proved ourselves. I don't think he would be on the field right away, and if he earned his way back on the field, then you'd see him play,'' Haynesworth said.
