New York Giants rookie safety Chad Jones underwent seven-plus hours of surgery Friday in New Orleans to repair a broken left leg and ankle that he sustained when his sport-utility vehicle smashed into a pole,'s Steve Wyche reported.

Jones appeared to have nerve damage in his leg, but doctors' initial diagnosis is that amputation -- a concern throughout the day after the morning accident -- won't be needed, the player's agent, Rocky Arceneaux, told Wyche.

Jones definitely won't play this coming season, but it's too early to say if his injuries are career-threatening, Arceneaux said.
