Chad Jones Injury Update: New York Giants' 2010 Draft Pick Unlikely To Play This Season

Chad Jones, the New York Giants' 2010 draft choice who has yet to play an NFL down after almost dying in a car accident, is reportedly "not close" to an NFL return despite being present during the team's offseason workout program.

The New York Post reports that Jones is still in the rehabilitation portion of his recovery and has "a long way to go."

The safety, a third-round draft choice out of LSU in 2010, has undergone 14 surgeries since a car accident on June 25, 2010 threatened his life. He is not cleared to play in this week's rookie camp, is not expected to resume activities by the time veteran camp arrives on June 12, and the Giants do not believe he's likely to return to the field this season.
