Jarvis Jones reportedly receives good medical report

Georgia linebacker Jarvis Jones' status as a top-10 draft pick this April fully depends on how confident NFL teams are about his health.

Jones has received very good news on that front in the form of a new medical report recently sent to NFL teams. Dan Pompei of the National Football Post reported Sunday that leading orthopedist Craig Brigham concluded that Jones never had a significant spinal-cord contusion. Brigham's findings refute findings by USC doctors who diagnosed Jones with spinal stenosis in 2009.

USC wouldn't medically clear Jones, leading to the linebacker's decision to transfer.

Brigham believes Jones had a very mild incident of spinal-cord concussion or a stinger. Either way, the doctor believes the situation has long since been resolved. Jones' ability to star for two seasons at Georgia provides evidence in support of Brigham's conclusion.

Brigham said Jones could continue playing even if another similar injury occurred. He concluded: "Jarvis is cleared to play without restriction."

This won't remove all doubt from the equation, but Brigham's medical report should provide some peace of mind to teams who believe Jones can be a centerpiece of an NFL defense. Don't expect a first-round free-fall here.

Re: Jarvis Jones at 15??

How can you have two such contradictory reports? I guess you consider the fact he played the last two seasons, have your own doctors review both reports & go from there, but this kid is going to be a welcome addition to some NFL team. I think he'd look great in black & gold ... honolulu blue & silver as well, and 'you-know-who' is picking at #5 and desperately needs on OLB, .

Doesn't being 'cleared to play without restriction' put to rest the longevity issue or are we still assuming he only has an NFL shelf life of a few seasons? If he's only gonna' be around a few seasons, I see what you're saying, but I'm assuming, by the report, there is no spinal injury at all & he'll be fine.

We don't bet on horses that have a sore hoof, much less spinal arthritis. Let someone else take that risk.

Re: Jarvis Jones at 15??

Well I take 4 good years from him - see Merriman in his prime in San Diego - while our window with Brees is still open. After that we need to rebuild anyway, drafting a player like him then doesn´t make any sense. But right now - GET HIM. He is a baller!

I guess you know more than the doctors who just basically issued a clean bill of health. Enlighten us on on your line of thinking, please. Or don't. If he falls to us, we're taking him without hesitation. Bet on that.
