The New York Giants have given an update on rookie safety Chad Jones’ condition. That doesn’t mean that any questions are answered but rather that the surgery went well and he will be in recovery for a very long time. Jones has a broken left leg and ankle with some tissue damage. At one point, the conversation turned to possibly amputating his left leg but reports now confirm that it won’t be needed. He remains in the hospital and we expect a full report sometime tomorrow or certainly by the end of the weekend. Chad Jones was a 3rd round pick in the 2010 NFL Draft this year and just signed a 4-year contract with the Giants last week.
Let’s take a look at what early reports are saying happened. Chad Jones (6’2″ 220 pounds) was driving his 2010 Range Rover in New Orleans at approximately 6:00 AM EST. Jones apparently drove his SUV into a utility pole. Both of his passengers walked away from the accident unharmed but Jones got the worst of it, having to be removed from the vehicle. He was taken to a nearby hospital and was listed as being in “guarded condition”. His father visited him earlier in the day and said his son was alert. His agent gave a brief statement earlier in the day and promised more news soon. The Giants have been quiet about things until they get the full story (something that I completely agree with).
Michael Eisen of Giants.com, gave the latest update on Jones’ condition saying that the team is there for him and his family. I’m sure that Chad Jones’ mind must spinning out of control right now. If you took a look at the photo’s of the accident or the read any of the reports, you would see that his SUV was totaled and it is by God’s good grace, that Chad Jones is alive. Let’s all say a prayer for this kid and hope that everything turns out ok for him.
Are you concerned about New York Giants rookie Chad Jones’ football career? Do you think he will miss the entire 2010 season or return at some point late in the year?
