There is another name to add to the list of New England Patriots working back to heath.
According to ESPN Boston’s Mike Reiss, right defensive end Chandler Jones has spent much of this offseason rehabilitating at Gillette Stadium, after undergoing surgery following the Super Bowl.
The 25-year-old Jones missed six games in 2014 due to a hip injury, but returned in December to play in the final six, finishing with 51 tackles, seven sacks and two forced fumbles through the playoffs.
Reiss notes that while his long-term health does not appear to be in question, his availability for offseason workouts appears uncertain.
Jones is now the sixth Patriots player to have reportedly undergone a procedure since the team’s campaign concluded on Feb. 1. The 6-foot-5, 265-pound former first-round pick is joined by offensive linemen Ryan Wendell and Sebastian Vollmer, defensive tackles Sealver Siliga and Chris Jones, as well as linebacker Dont’a Hightower.
