Walter Jones To Have Arthroscopic Procedure To Knee Thursday

Published on August 19, 2009 by     Seahawk Fanatic

Patrick kerneyWalter Jones and Marcus Trufant. Neither practiced, but coach Jim Mora did provide updates on the condition of the injured Pro Bowl tandem.

Jones is scheduled to have an arthroscopic procedure Thursday morning on his left knee at the Seattle Surgery Center. It is the same one that needed microfracture surgery in December and sidelined the Pro Bowl left tackle for the final four games last season. Trufant has an issue with a disk in his back, which was revealed when the team’s left cornerback was given a magnetic resonance imaging test.

“We don’t think of it as anything mind-blowing serious, but we want to be sure,” Mora said of Jones getting a scope. “He just didn’t feel right. You guys all saw it. Big man just didn’t feel right, so we want to make sure he’s OK.”

Jones returned to practice last Thursday after missing almost two weeks because of back spasms. Monday, he started practice but was unable to finish.

“He just felt weird in his knee after about five or six snaps,” Mora said. “We don’t think that it’s anything significant.”

On Trufant, who has been on the physically unable to perform list since camp started, Mora said, “There is a little disk issue. Not to be alarming, he’s actually doing very well. It’s not anything that will need surgery.

“It’s actually – if you want to be a glass-half-full guy, which I am – good that we found this out now rather than in the middle of the season. Because now we can make some decisions how we move forward. … We have a chance to take our time and be patient with his recovery.”

Mora did not have a timetable on the return of either player.
