Chad Jones in surgery, critical condition following wreck

Chad Jones, the third-round draft pick of the New York Giants, is in critical condition following a vehicle accident this morning in New Orleans.

The former LSU star was involved in a grisly wreck, according to WWL-TV, and suffered a fractured leg and had arteries and nerves exposes, per the report. He is in surgery.

The Giants added the two-sport star to their secondary with high hopes. He was also drafted by the Houston Astros in the Major League Baseball draft earlier this month.

“Just got news about Chad Jones' car accident,” LSU coach Les Miles said on his Twitter account. “We are praying for Chad and his family. Keep him in your prayers.”
