Jones Has Surgery

There have been a ton of articles posted on Pride of Detroit this week regarding Kevin Jones. That is unfortunate because chances are when someone is being discussed that much, there is some bad news involved. That is the case with running back Kevin Jones.

After suffering a lisfranc injury in his leg this past weekend, Jones saw a specialist and had surgery in Charlotte, North Carolina. The surgery done included doctors placing screws in the bones located in the middle of his foot in order to try and heal the injury. A lisfranc injury can range from a few different things, but the one Jones sustained is one of the more serious kind as he tore tissues that connect the bones in the middle of the foot.

The next step for Jones is just resting and trying to get better. He cannot put any weight on the leg for at least 12 weeks. After that, it'll just be a waiting game to see how long Jones will be out for. By the time the 12 weeks are up, it'll be right around free agency and draft preparation time, so hopefully everyone can get a better idea of a timetable for his hopeful return.

Here at Pride of Detroit, I wish KJ the best of luck in getting back to full health as any injury is bad, but one like this on a much greater scale is just horrendous. Good luck down the road to the running back and I hope to see him on the field again sometime next season.
