Here goes a quick update on ex-LSU football and baseball player Chad Jones. After eight hours of surgery yesterday Jones’ agent, Rocky Arceneaux, told a local paper that he is currently “in recovery“. And from the sound of it looks as though Jones is going to make it without having to get his leg amputated. Phew! We should have a state from either Jones or his agent later today telling us what led to the horrific car crash.
But as one of our readers pointed out on our intial story this is not the only tragedy to rock LSU Athletics this month. LSU soccer midfielder Kellie Murphy, her brother LSU student Brian Murphy and her sister Nicole Murphy were hit by a car last week while in South Africa for the World Cup…and sadly Nicole a medical student, I believe at LSU, was killed instantly. The family is trying to raise money to bring the kids home and for insurance cost, so if you can donate here is the link where you can find all the needed info.
