Jones: "This injury was the best thing that ever happened to me"

Nebraska cornerback Chris Jones made his 2017 debut this past Saturday against Wisconsin. Jones is once again donning a Blackshirt just three months after a knee injury nearly derailed his senior season. 

"Believe it or not, I really think this injury was the best thing that ever happened to me," said Jones following Tuesday's practice. "I learned so much about this game. My football IQ went up. Me just saying I won't to be back four to six months, I'm going to be back earlier. That confidence just started building up in me and then it just motivated me to come in everyday and just work hard."

Jones & the Huskers host 9th ranked Ohio State Saturday at 6:30 on FS1.
