Chad Jones plans to go through Giants’ offseason program

Chad Jones, the safety who was drafted by the Giants in April of 2010 then nearly lost his leg in a car crash two months later, is finally getting close to returning to the field.

Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News reports that Jones plans to be there when the Giants’ offseason workout program begins on April 16.

Jones still hasn’t been cleared medically to return to the playing field, so it’s premature to say he’ll be ready to go in two months. But he’s been working hard in rehabilitation and said last fall that he was running the 40-yard dash in times as fast as 4.84 seconds.

If Jones is able to come all the way back from his devastating leg injuries to get cleared to play, that would be an impressive recovery. If he actually gets on the field for the Giants, that would be amazing.
