Big Walt's Status Uncertain

by: Mike Parker

Eric Williams of the Tacoma News-Tribune got a chance to catch up with Walter Jones after today's practice. Jones won't participate in any practices until his knee is fully recovered from the microfracture surgery he had late last year. So in a manner of speaking, Jones' status with the team is a little uncertain for now.

"It’s doing good," Jones said. "I’m doing the things I’m supposed to be doing right now, so hopefully when it’s time to go I’m ready ... But you have to prepare for the reality of things, too. Anything can happen, but all you can do is do the things that they ask of you, and hopefully you can come back strong."
For now, it doesn't sound like there's too much cause for alarm with Big Walt's health, but Williams did pose the far-too-disturbing question of "Do you think your career could be over?"

Walt simply replied, "I hope not." -END-
