Agent: Chad Jones will run again

The worst is over.  The worst-case scenarios involving the fate of Giants safety Chad Jones were avoided on Friday, and the Jones family is thrilled.

“I know his family is absolutely ecstatic that the surgery was
successful,” Jones’ agent Rocky Arceneux told the New Orleans Times-Picayune.

It’s too early for a timetable for when Jones will leave the hospital, much less play sports again.  But Arceneux remains optimistic.

“I don’t see that based on the type of athlete that Chad is that
anything would prevent Chad from walking. And from running, ” Arceneaux
said, after amputation was avoided.

The Associated Press writes that Jones’ accident was caused when he turned his wheel quickly trying to get off the streetcar tracks.

Newsday, meanwhile, reported that NOPD does not believe alcohol or drugs are involved, although toxicology tests will be performed.

    I am sorry Giant fans and friends of Chad Jones, but he will never play football again. And since the injury was not football related, the Giants do not have to pay him any money – assuming he signed his rookie contract.
    Very sad.

    That’s great news. Get well Chad.

    Great news.

    doesnt look good for him athletically, but we have seen crazier stuff…glad things went smoothly so far

    Great news, hope he’s able to come back.
    (They told Rocky Bleier he’d never play again either.)

    Hopefully he at least had a lloyds of london policy he can collect from.

    Good news but sadly I don’t think he will be able to make a full recovery. Broken legs can ruin careers. Anyone remember Tyrone Prothro? Granted, his injury wasa football injury, but a devastating car accident could do the same for Jones. I hope he makes it back but I fear the worst

    He must be sick. To work so hard and get so close to fulfilling a lifelong dream, only to have it snatched away from you due to a freak accident.
    Best wishes for Chad Jones.

    If proper blood flow was restored, than the main issue related to a full recovery, would be if any nerves were severed. Reattached nerves never return to 100% .
    It’s possible he could make a come back but not this season. Doctors always give you the worst chance outlook. If you do better, they look like miracle workers, if not, “they told you” (saves on law suits).

    According to rotoworld.com, on June 11 Jones signed a four-year, $2.616 million contract which included a signing bonus of $825,965.

    I JUST READING SOME POSTS, FROM OTHER
    TEAMS, YOU ARE SPECIAL, AND AS A GIANT
    FAN, MOREOVER, A FOOTBALL FAN MORE IMPORTANTLY, THANK YOU ALL! SORRY TO SAY, ON OUR OWN NY-DAILY NEWS, BLUE SCREEN BLOG, ALREADY SOME ARE MORE CONCERNED WITH “WHO’S FAULT” RATHER THEN HIS LIFE! HE’S 23. DOES IT MATTER?

    It’s over.

  13. GBfanForever says: Jun 26, 2010 3:18 PM

    It’s good to hear. As a Brewer fan I hope his leg heals well enough to pursue a career as a pitcher if he can’t play football which sounds like the case.

  14. Bigbluefan says: Jun 26, 2010 3:29 PM

    The agent is just hoping he plays so he can get his cut.
    Maybe it was the agents car that is now a paper weight
    The only thing that matters is that this young man gets the ability to put one foot in front of the other the rest is gravy

  15. LighTsouT says: Jun 26, 2010 3:34 PM

    good luck to him. I’m not a Giants fan at all, but just because I don’t like the team doesn’t mean I wish to see anyone on the team get hurt like this. I wish him a good road to recovery and hopefully he makes it back to the NFL.

  16. EG says: Jun 26, 2010 3:41 PM

    hopefully this guy can play again, but it’s hard to recover to the level at which these players perform… maybe with hard work he may become a coach someday

  17. BigEasy says: Jun 26, 2010 4:15 PM

    the dudes alive….whether he plays or doesn’t play in the NFL is silly…..the dude’s a stud athlete and only 1 of 2 NCAA players to be a part of a NCAA football and baseball championship!!!!!

  18. Adam says: Jun 26, 2010 7:12 PM

    Thanks to the fans of other teams for being classy. I expect the Giants to take care of the kid and not abandon him.

    Don’t understand the euphoric headline. All I’ve seen are what seems to be conclusion-drawing on the part of a sports agent, not definitive quotes from an M.D. When a doc says the surgery on a seriously injured patient was “successful”, it has as many different meanings are there are doctors practicing, e.g., It’s successful, he’s going to live. It’s successful, he won’t lose his leg. It’s successful, he MAY walk again someday.
    It’s successful, he will live, keep his leg, walk, and play pro ball again some time before he reaches retirement age? That’s a wait-and-see.
