New York Giants rookie Chad Jones faced the possibility of losing his leg on Friday after a car crash the fractured his left leg in several places.
With the advancement in medicine in recent years there is no doubt that Jones will play again in the National Football League.
The latest example of the advancements in the NFL is Buffalo Bills guard Eric Wood who suffered a compound leg fracture that doctors thought may take him into the beginning of training camp before he sees the practice field.
However, Wood is so far ahead of schedule that he started practicing with the Bills this week.
Also, Minnesota Vikings middle linebacker EJ Henderson suffered a fractured femur, but signs are pointing to him being ready for the start of training camp.
In the end, as long as Jones works hard during rehab it won’t be matter of if, but rather a question of when.
