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.
