JONES’ RIG AFTER ACCIDENT
New York Giants rookie safety Chad Jones was involved in a serious car accident over the weekend. Jones crashed his SUV into a tree in New Orleans, Friday.
Reports indicate that Jones fractured the tibia and fibula of his left leg in the accident and that his injuries were so significant that doctors almost had to amputate his mangled leg. Jones was also placed on a breathing machine when he first got to the hospital.
Jones was a third round draft pick of the Giants out of LSU in the 2010 NFL Draft. He was part of the National Championship LSU football team in 2008. He also was a star pitcher on the school’s baseball team who regularly hit 90 MPH on the radar gun.
JONES WAS ALSO A STAR PITCHER ON THE LOUISIANA STATE UNIVERSITY BASEBALL TEAM
