Buried at the bottom of a USA Today update regarding Friday’s automobile accident involving Giants safety Chad Jones is a potentially significant disclosure.
Police have received Jones toxicology test results, according to his agent, Rocky Arceneaux.
“I’m not certain, but I do not think alcohol was involved in the
accident,” Arceneaux told USA Today.
Though Jones faces far more important challenges as he recovery from the serious leg injuries he suffered, the question of whether alcohol was a factor in the accident could be a factor in the Giants’ decision whether to withhold Jones’ $320,000 base salary if/when he’s placed on the non-football illness/injury list.
