NEW ORLEANS (AP) - The New Orleans Saints are bringing Chad Jones in for a workout.

WWL TV reports the workout will take place Wednesday.

Jones, a New Orleans native, was severely injured in a car accident in New Orleans in 2010, suffering multiple fractures to his left leg. Both his tibia and fibula were shattered, and his arteries and nerves were left exposed.

The crash occurred after Jones, a standout athlete at LSU in football and baseball, was drafted by the New York Giants in the third round and signed with the team.

Since the accident, Jones has been rehabilitating hoping for a chance to play professional football. The Giants waived Jones after he failed a physical in May.
