NEW YORK – It has been a long time since Giants fans have heard an update on rookie safety Chad Jones’ condition since his automobile accident. We know he is out for the 2010 NFL season, which would have been his rookie year. This was a similar situation last year with rookie RB Andre Brown, who was cut after a year on the IR list. Hopefully, Pat Hanlon or someone else with the Giants can let us know soon. I was expecting big things from this kid, just as I was with RB Andre Brown. I hope they do not share a similar fate in their ability to play football.
Chad Jones was lucky to escape a horrible car accident before training camp began in the summer of 2010 (6-25-10). The Giants put Jones on the waivers list and waited until he cleared before they picked him back up. He was placed on the non-football related injured reserve list, where he has remained during his rehab process which is on going. The Giants had a rash of injuries at the safety position this year and were fortunate to have gotten Antrel Rolle and Deon Grant on the team before the season started. The fact that Kenny Phillips wad able to return fully healthy this year, after getting shut down for most of the 2009 season is a miracle. The Giants secondary has been greatly improved by the presence of new Defensive Coordinator Perry Fewell, who is known as a defensive backs guru. The Giants have had the number one defense ranking multiple times this season thus far.
It will be interesting to see where Chad Jones fits into the picture when he is healthy. Once a Giant, always a Giant Chad! You have the Giants fans rooting for you to get well soon. Hopefully, this young man can return to the game he loves and have a long career in the NFL.
