We just may have seen the end of Chipper Jones’ illustrious career with the Atlanta Braves. Jones’ season, and maybe career, came to an end today with news of a MRI showing that he has torn his ACL.
An MRI showed Chipper Jones has torn the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee, his agent BB Abbott said Thursday morning. Abbott said he received a text message from Jones, saying the ligament was torn. Jones had been examined by Dr. Marvin Royster, Braves orthopedist who read the MRI.
“He said it was stretched out pretty bad,” Abbott said. “That it was torn and needed to be fixed.”
Abbott said that it appears Jones is headed for season-ending surgery, but that Jones might seek a second opinion.
