On June 25th of last year, New York Giants cornerback Chad Jones was involved in a car accident in New Orleans, breaking multiple bones in his leg and foot. The initial charge by the New Orleans Police Department was careless operation of a vehicle, but alcohol was not a factor.
After emergency surgery, doctors were able to save the young cornerback’s leg. A lengthy rehabilitation followed the surgery with Jones progressing significantly as the months passed. Jones is now working toward a return to the Giants for the 2012 season. His perseverence throughout the first year of his recovery bodes well for his continued recuperation and return to football.
