Chad Jones In Accident

Sorry. Been busy all day and just catching up. But here's a link to the tragic Chad Jones accident. A football career appears to be the least of the 21-year-old LSU star safety and pitcher's concerns right now, as doctors list him in guarded condition after breaking his left leg and ankle in an early morning car crash.

While doctors fought to save his leg, teammates sent out their thoughts on Twitter.

"Pray for my teammate," wrote cornerback Terrell Thomas.

"Thoughts n prayers go out to my new teammate, Chad Jones," wrote wide receiver Steve Smith.

It's nothing short of ironic that Jones' accident should come just a couple of weeks after Mathias Kiwanuka barely escaped a motorcycle crash unhurt. The accident did put his brother in the critical care unit for a week, however. Jones was not riding a motorcycle. He supposedly lost control of his SUV.

On a far less important note, the Giants waived undrafted quarterback Riley Skinner, leaving them with Eli Manning, Jim Sorgi, and Rhett Bomar.

Also, fifth-round guard Mitch Petrus and seventh-round punter Matt Dodge signed their contracts, leaving only first-round defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul and second-round defensive tackle Linval Joseph unsigned. Bet that they'll make an on-time arrival at training camp Aug. 1, though.

  1. How is the Kiwanuka bit ironic?
