Chad Jones Recovery Is 'Extremely Positive,' Father Says

Posted: Updated:

NEW ORLEANS — The father of New York Giants rookie safety Chad Jones says his son is in good spirits and that his injured left leg and foot are looking better.

In a statement released by LSU, Al Jones says a long healing process is only beginning, but adds that "everything is positive right now" with Chad Jones' recovery from a serious auto wreck early Friday morning.

The 21-year-old Jones, who won national titles in football and baseball at LSU, was the Giants' third-round draft choice in April.

Police are still investigating Friday's single-car accident in which Jones' SUV rolled into a street car line pole. Police have not received a toxicology report but say there was no evidence at the scene that alcohol was a factor.
