Giants' statement on injured rookie

New York Giants third-round pick and former LSU two-sport star Chad Jones underwent surgery on his left leg and ankle Friday following an early morning wreck when his SUV slammed into a pole in New Orleans. The Giants released a statement late Friday afternoon:

"We continue to gather information on Chad's condition, and obviously our primary concern is for his health and well-being. [General manager] Jerry Reese and his staff have maintained contact with Chad's family throughout the day."

I've been in touch with the club throughout the afternoon. If there are any updates regarding Jones' surgery, I'll pass it along to you.
