If any folks from the Ravens were watching Jacoby Jones perform in Week 5 of “Dancing With The Stars,” you have to think they would be holding their breaths. It was by far his most athletic performance thus far on the ABC show — which also had to make you worry about whether he would get hurt.

But fortunately for the wide receiver/kick returner, his athletic moves during a rendition of the jive came off flawlessly. He leaped over partner Karina Smirnoff and pulled off two splits back to back. There was less teamwork required with Smirnoff in this dance, but Jones drew another set of high scores from the judges, totaling 26 and placing third.

(And whoever did Jones’ tattoos should be paying him for all of the prime-time exposure. Jones once again danced shirtless.)

The high scores came despite some criticism of Jones’ footwork. Judge Len Goodman particularly harped on the need for Jones to point his toes and not be so flat-footed.

Overall, though, Jones continues to look pretty nimble.
