Jones clattered into Hull defender Maynor Figueroa while jumping for a corner in the 16th minute of the match at Old Trafford.

The 22-year-old England defender walked off the field and down the tunnel moments later, wincing with pain.

Press Association Sport understands Jones was taken straight to hospital, where his left shoulder will be assessed.

Jones has been capped nine times by his country, and was more than likely to make Roy Hodgson's 23-man squad, which is named next Monday in Luton.
