Chad Jones in critical condition after car accident

Giants safety Chad Jones, a third-round pick in the 2010 draft, was listed in critical condition and in surgery as of 11:15 a.m. ET following a serious car accident.

Per WWL-TV, Jones suffered a fractured leg, with “arteries and nerves exposed.” 

The headline to the item characterizes Jones as being in “guarded” condition, but the article uses only the term “critical.”

Either way, it’s a serious situation and our prayers are with Jones and his family.

  1. Oh man…you pop onto PFT to take your mind off work for a few minutes, and you get to read this…that really sucks, seemed to be a fantastic kid, I really wanted Pittsburgh to draft him.
    I really hope he’s ok

  2. damn, hope you heal up man. Its a damn shame when someone with enough talent to make the pros is injured.

  3. I hope this kid pulls through… Thoughts and Prayers are with Chad Jones and his family… God bless

  4. Doesn’t matter that I hate his team. My prayers are with him and his family and anyone else that was affected by the crash.

  5. Terrible news to read about.
    I hope for the best for him and his loved ones during this tough time.

  6. this guy was such a G and class act (rarely the 2 go together). I watched him play at LSU (football and baseball) for years. I remember they used to throw him on the pitchers mound and it used to blow peoples minds (because it was clear that he was not a developed pitcher, but he still got K’s). he took a ball to the face in the outfield once, got a black eye, and kept playing.
    the local community loves this guy because they got to see him year round playing for 2 extremely popular sports teams. Figures hed be in New Orleans. Get better Mr. Jones. you still belong on the football field.

  7. At least he’s still alive. I just found out that Michael Jackson died a year ago! Did any of you others hear about that?? You’d think it would have been all over the news or something.

  8. I hope he recovers fully.
    I just hope the car accident doesn’t stem from “rookie-itis”; i.e. drinking, partying, etc.

  9. At least he’s still alive. I just found out that Michael Jackson died a year ago! Did any of you others hear about that?? You’d think it would have been all over the news or something.
    It’s totally inappropriate to post that here.
    But I LOL’d.
    Anyway, positive thoughts from me to Chad Jones.

  10. There’s a link to it on Huffingon Post, it looks he was speeding in a residential /commercial district, nowhere near the highway..
    Luckily no one else was injured by this recklessness.
