NFL commissioner Roger Goodell called Giants rookie safety Chad Jones to see how the player is recovering following intensive surgery on his left leg after Friday's car accident. "Chad wishes he could tell everybody how wonderful the messages make him feel with the calls and the texts," Al Jones, the rookie's father, said. "Even Mr. Goodell gave him a call and wished him well and a speedy recovery." Three days after undergoing seven hours of surgery to save his shattered left leg and restore blood flow to his ankle and foot to avoid the possibility of amputation, Jones was in good spirits as he continues to heal.
