New York Giants third-round draft pick and former LSU two-sport star Chad Jones has been hospitalized following a car accident.

LSU athletics spokesman Michael Bonnette says the former Tigers safety and baseball standout was injured in a single-vehicle accident in New Orleans early Friday.

The university says Jones was admitted to the LSU Public Hospital in New Orleans in guarded condition.

Jones' agent, Rocky Arceneaux, says the severity of Jones' injuries was not immediately known.

Jones' father, Al Jones, tells The Advocate of Baton Rouge that his son was alert after the accident.
