Jones OK after hip surgery

At the conclusion of the Flyers’ season, it was announced that defenseman Randy Jones would need exploratory surgery to figure out why the same hip that needed a procedure done to repair a torn labrum at the beginning of the season, was still giving him pain.  After getting the hip checked out by professionals, it turns out Randy did not re-injure himself, but just needed a clean up.

On Wednesday, Jones underwent a surgery to clean up scar tissue and inflamed tissue in his hip.

“Jones had immediate relief from the surgery they did today,” Holmgren said.

Jones finished the season under extreme pain caused by the sore hip and serious surgery was a potential concern.  But with him possibly on the trade block in the offseason, not needing months of rehab is not only a breath of fresh air for Jones, but for the Flyers as well.

    I think that Jones should be credited for playing through what be played through nobody was crapping on Hatcher when he could have given the Cap more space by retiring last year when they needed more cap money.
