The New York Giants have learned that rookie safety Chad Jones, who just signed a 4-year contract with Big Blue, was involved in an auto accident today.
Jones was in an auto accident during the early morning in New Orleans and taken to the hospital. Reports have said that the hospital has him listed as being in “guarded condition”. Jones’ agent made a statement explaining that they didn’t know anything yet but would be talking to reporters later in the day.
Let me first say, that I hope Chad Jones is not seriously injured. His father said that he was “alert” when he visited him at the hospital. That is good news for fans and his friends. His 2010 Range Rover was totaled in what appears to be a very bad car accident. The crash occurred around 5:00 AM – 6:00 AM EST and Jones is said to have run into a pole. Some reports have stated that his worst injury appears to be to one of his legs. Jones had surgery to repair a broken left leg and left ankle.
Hopefully, there will be no lingering effects or anything in 2010. We will have to sit back and wait for more news to come out on it. Everything is pure speculation at this point, so I would like to wait and hear what happened before making any rash statements. From everything I have seen and read about Jones, he is a stand up kid and I truly hope he is OK. It is a shame when things like this happen to young players.
There is not much to report yet, you will have to return for updates later on. This story is just breaking right now.
If S Chad Jones is expected to miss a lot of time, who do you think will have to step up in his spot?
Get well soon Chad!

Reports have come out stating that Giants rookie safety Chad Jones got out of surgery nearly 7 hours after it began. His injuries were much more serious then originally thought and could be career ending. The doctors acknowledged that they would not need to amputate his left leg after all. Chad Jones will reportedly miss the entire 2010 season and we wish him a very speedy recovery.
GET WELL SOON CHAD!!!
Reports are saying that the operation went well but it is still too early to determine Chad Jones’ future in the NFL. Keep a close eye on this story because this kid has a lot of promise.
