Cowboys rookie cornerback Byron Jones got a second opinion on his banged up left shoulder recently and, thankfully, it was pretty much the same as the first opinion, that of the team doctors: minor issue, no structural damage.
Jones was hurt last Sunday in a collision with fellow corner Morris Claiborne in 7-on-7 drills. He tore the labrum in the left shoulder last year at UConn and had surgery to repair it in October, but it doesn’t look like that case and this one are connected in any way.
After the Cowboys team doctors found no structural damage, Jones’s representatives called for the second opinion but Jones himself never left the team. Rather, they just sent the test results off to have them looked over by another set of eyes.
“I’ve been working out pretty good, though,” Jones said, per the Dallas Morning News. “I”ll be back. I’ll be alright. Looks like I’ll be around soon.”
