The New York Giants' third-round draft choice in 2010, Chad Jones, continues his long road to recovery after a serious car accident nearly killed him, but he likely will not be playing football any time soon, the New York Post reported Thursday.
Casserly: Barkley vs. Jones
Matt Barkley and Landry Jones are two of the top prospects for the 2013 draft. Charley Casserly scouts both quarterbacks. **More ...**
Jones was not cleared for the Giants' three-day rookie minicamp this week, and the Post reported he probably won't be cleared to partake in the team's veteran camp June 12-14 or suit up at all this season.
Giants officials recently announced that Jones has a "long way to go," and after 14 surgeries. Jones remains in the rehabilitation phase of his recovery.
On June 25, 2010, Jones was involved in a solo-vehicle collision in his native New Orleans, which left him with critical injuries, including a badly damaged leg that cast doubt on his future as a football player.
The Giants have been addressing their depth at safety this offseason. In April, they drafted Tyler Sash, who's expected to be their third safety, behind starters Kenny Phillips and Antrel Rolle. The Giants also signed free-agent safeties Stevie Brown and Chris Horton.
