Nebraska Football: Chris Jones Out 4-6 Months With Torn Meniscus

The Nebraska football team’s defensive backfield took a hit over the weekend.

According to a report from the Lincoln Journal Star, star cornerback Chris Jones is set to miss the next four to six months while he recovers from a torn meniscus in his left knee.

Jones, who is one of the Cornhuskers’ top players, underwent surgery to repair the damage.

The former four-star recruit commented on his injury and recovery with a quick post on social media, seeming to approach his return to the field with positivity.

Jones was set to join Nebraska teammates Tanner Lee and Chris Weber at Big Ten Media Day next week, but he is no longer set to attend. Instead, junior safety Aaron Williams will be taking his place.

Last season, Jones recorded three interceptions, 37 tackles and ten pass breakups while earning honorable-mention All-Big Ten honors.
