Jones has sports hernia surgery
TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- Alabama receiver Julio Jones has undergone surgery to repair a sports hernia.
A spokesman for the football team confirmed Monday that Jones had the surgery. He is expected to be back for fall camp.
Jones was the Crimson Tide's leading receiver as a freshman with 58 catches for 924 yards. He was a second-team Associated Press All-Southeastern Conference pick.
Jones was instantly one of the Tide's most popular players. He won a seat on the Student Government Association's senate through write-in votes.
