Patriots’ CB Jonathan Jones Sends Message After Surgery

The New England Patriots parted ways with a big chunk of their 2023 roster. The organization has yet to fill out the biggest holes on the roster. New England has yet to find a strong quarterback. Some of the players have secured their spot on the roster and Jonathan Jones is one of them. We don’t have much info on his procedure, but we do know that Jones had to undergo a surgery this offseason.

The Patriots cornerback took to his Instagram stories to deliver strong messages for his fans.

“In and out like clock work! Ready to bounce back for the season,” Jones wrote while sharing a photo of him laying in a hospital bed.

Dakota Randall from NESN didn’t provide any information on Jones’ procedure. Randall did remind readers that Jones was dealing with ankle and knee injuries in the regular season.

Jones went undrafted in 2016, but has been on two championship winning squads. He helped the Patriots win two Super Bowls and the team will probably keep him around for a while. Jones has 378 tackles, 2.5 sacks, two fumble recoveries, 51 pass deflections, and 11 interceptions in his NFL career.

Patriots to keep Dugger, Jones after the CB undergoes surgery

Patriots gave Kyle Dugger a transition tag earlier this month. Jones spoke about his teammate and believes that Dugger would be of great help for the team.

“I mean, Dugg has been a centerpiece for us on the defense, especially since Devin [McCourty] left,” Jones said on the “Next Pats Podcast” in February. “He’s played a pivotal part on the defense, and guys like him don’t come around often.

“He’s one of those old-school football guys that don’t mind getting out there and knocking someone out, and I’ve seen him knock out a couple of offensive linemen. So, you want a guy like that, a tone-setter on your defense.”

In 2023, Dugger had 109 tackles, two interceptions, 1.5 sacks, a forced fumble, and seven pass deflections. In his four seasons in the NFL, Duffer had 343 tackles, nine interceptions, 2.5 sacks, two forced fumbles and recoveries.
