The 35-year-old left tackle Walter Jones failed to finish the Seattle Seahawks Monday practice. He will have an arthroscopic surgery on his left knee Thursday morning, the second knee operation since he got the injury eight months ago.
The injury brought Jones to a micro fracture surgery last December and caused him to miss all but three days of practice in training camp. As the anchor of Seattle’s offensive line for the last decade, Jones was expected to be back with the team soon. He tried, but unfortunately there seemed to be some “loose bodies” inside the knee tormenting Jones, and he had to leave midway through the session.
Coach Jim Mora said the surgery would be just to check the “loose bodies” out and he believed Jones would be available for playing in the regular season.
