Julio Jones Has Surgery for Broken Hand
According to Saban, Jones injured the hand in the first half of the game but continued to play. He has already had surgery to insert screws and a plate into the hand. His status for this weekend and beyond is unknown. The issue is apparently pain tolerance, meaning Jones can return as soon as he can feels up to it. They'll re-assess the injury on Wednesday.
Despite the injury, Jones produced in the loss, catching eight passes for 118 yards and a touchdown.
