NEW ORLEANS, LA (WAFB) - Former LSU football and baseball player Chad Jones is alert and in good spirits following a horrific crash in New Orleans last week.

Al Jones, Chad's father, gave an update to his son's condition in a news release from LSU.

He added his son was very appreciative of the tremendous support from all the LSU fans.

Jones is said to be resting comfortably and recouping from the leg and foot injuries he suffered early Friday morning when he wrecked his SUV.

Jones was a third-round draft choice of the New York Giants in April.

The team begins training camp in a little over a month, but the standout rookie from LSU will not be in attendance.

He just signed a contract with the team on June 11.
