Vols WR Jones has surgery

Tennessee wide receiver Gerald Jones had successful surgery on his left wrist on Wednesday.

The school reported in a news release Thursday that he is expected to make a full recovery by the start of preseason practice in August.

Jones, considered one of the Vols’ big-play threats, also played briefly at quarterback last season.

Oh really. How many passes has Jones thrown? Until Jones actually throws a pass and completes it, defenses saw the G Gun and brought ten men up. I'm not sure about "better than" but I do know one thing Jonathan Crompton is a better man thn you are. I'm sure of it. If the young man will spend these many years working to be the quarterback at the school you supposedly support, he ought to command more of your respect than to denigrate his name. Really 10EC can't you do better than a bastardization of the boy's proper name.

Can't remember for sure, but didn't Jones throw a pass for 30-40 yards during a game last year?

Oh well, I can't find it in the stats, but it seems like I remember a pass from Jones that went for a pretty good chunk of yardage during a game last year. Can anyone else remember this, or am I just delusional?

Let's look forward to a Crompton to Jones TC combo to repeat itself over and over again this season. Support ALL VOL players, fellow big orange fans, and let's hope all will stay healthy.

Oooops! That's supposed to say TD--not TC.

I sure don't remember it IP. I do remember one really nice long completion Crompton to Jones (I think) that made fifty yards look really easy. But I really don't remember even seeing Jones put the ball in the air.

Isn't it stupid not to check the validity of the garbage you post?

Oh wait, all your posts are stupid and you don't have a life.
