Jerry Jones has second hip replacement in six weeks

Tommy Lasorda, Jerry Jones


Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is more durable than some of his players.

According to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Jones had his second hip replacement in the last six weeks last Friday, and plans to be on hand Sunday when his team plays the Giants.

Jones had his left hip replaced just before the start of training camp, and was encouraged enough by the results to get the other one done now.

Jerry’s doing great,” Cowboys spokesman Rich Dalrymple said. “He’s excited to have both procedures behind him before the season begins. He’s looking forward to being pain-free in a few weeks, which hasn’t been the case for several months. He’s very much looking forward to being at the game Sunday.”

The 72-year-old Jones spent most of camp riding around on a golf cart, but unlike a lot of players who travel that way during training camp, he’s expected to be back on his feet.
