Coventry City have today confirmed that winger Jodi Jones ruptured his Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) in a clash at Stevenage on Tuesday evening.
The injury, the worst possible outcome following scans immediately following the injury, now means Jones’ season is ended prematurely and will now require surgery in the coming weeks.
The blow rules Jones out for at least nine months.
Speaking to the Club’s official website, manager Mark Robins said,
“It’s bad news for Jodi as he has ruptured his ACL and it means the end of his season now due to the injury.
“It’s a blow for him as a young player as he has is a talented boy who is becoming a growing influence and someone who is great to work with, so it’s a setback for him in his young career.
“It’s going to be difficult for him to come to terms with the injury and the surgery which will follow and then how long he will be out and the rehabilitation that comes with it.
“But, he will come back stronger with the help of the medical team and the support of everyone at the club.”
Jones is the second City player to rupture his ACL this season, with summer signing Tony Andreu suffering the same injury in the game with Port Vale in September.
