DT Jones to have surgery

Posted by Administrator On February - 25 - 2009

Syracuse’s best defensive player will undergo chest surgery after a freak injury in the weight room.

Syracuse says defensive tackle Arthur Jones sustained a torn left pectoralis muscle while lifting weights on Feb. 23. An MRI confirmed the tear, and surgery is scheduled for next week.

The college says additional information regarding Jones’ recovery and activity level will be released as progress warrants.

Jones was a 2008 All-Big East first team selection last season as a junior. He ranks sixth on the Orange career record list for tackles for loss.

Last season, Jones recorded 60 tackles, including 13 for a loss of yards.
