The injury plagued Jones left after the sixth inning because of
an ailing groin in Atlanta's 11-0 loss to the Boston Red Sox on
"It was hurting," said manager Bobby Cox, who wasn't sure if
the slugger will miss any games.
Jones, hitting .323 with 12 homers and 27 RBIs, had been
hampered by injuries four years in a row. This season, he's played
only 50 of Atlanta's 73 games, spending time on the disabled list
after spraining both hands.
Jones had already left Turner Field by the time the media was
allowed in the clubhouse after the game.
