Chad Jones released from hospital

New York Post--Giants Blog—July 27, 2010

Chad Jones is going home, for now.

The Giants rookie safety, who last month suffered a serious and career-threatening injury to his left leg, this morning was released from Hospital for Special Surgery, where he'd been since June 29. Jones was involved in a car accident June 25 in New Orleans that did extensive damage to his left leg and ankle. He will return home today to New Orleans.

The long road back continues for Jones, a third-round draft pick out of LSU who excelled in college in both football and baseball and nearly lost his left leg in the accident. Jones has undergone several surgical procedures, first at LSU Public Hospital and later at HSS. He will rest and recuperate at home and then return to New York in several weeks for additional surgery.

"Chad is in great spirits and excited to be getting out of the hospital," said Ronnie Barnes, the Giants vice president of medical services, who visited Jones this morning. "All has gone well thus far for Chad, and he will return in probably six to eight weeks for another surgical procedure."
