The early indications this week were that Cowboys cornerback Adam “Pacman” Jones had suffered a neck injury that was career threatening. But a second opinion gave Jones good news.
Adam Schefter of NFL Network is reporting that another doctor has told Jones he could resume playing in a few weeks. That doctor told Jones he has fluid in his spine but will not need surgery.
With only three games remaining in the regular season, even an injury that keeps Jones out for a few weeks could lead the Cowboys to put him on injured reserve. But Jones is hoping that he can play for the Cowboys in the playoffs, if they make it.
Jones has been ruled out for Sunday’s game against the Giants.
