Mr. Jones waited 17 days after initially suffering the injury to allow the swelling to go down and strengthen the surrounding muscles.

He is the head team physician for the Giants and has served as a team physician for the U.S. Olympic Team in 2004, 2008, 2012 and 2016, according to the HSS website.
