Coventry City can confirm that winger Jodi Jones suffered an Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) injury against Peterborough United last month.
Jodi was a second-half substitute in the game but was brought off just moments later having sustained the injury.
The winger has re-injured the same knee as he suffered last season against Stevenage.
Jodi has had surgery and has had his knee re-constructed, with everything going fine during the operation and now he begins the road to recovery.
Talking in his pre-match press conference earlier today, Sky Blues boss Mark Robins confirmed the news and had this to say:
“Unfortunately, it is the worse news, but he’s had his operation.
“It is a re-graft, something that is devastating for everyone especially Jodi and again, we’ve got to help him over this hurdle, it is nine months to twelve months.
“It is just an unbelievable accident really and really bad luck and our thoughts are with him and we will just look to get him back as strong as possible this time.
“It’s slightly different the way they have repaired it this time, so hopefully he can make a full recovery as quickly as he possibly can do, but it was an absolutely shocking accident.
“You look at the incident and no one is near him. The turn and the pace he was going at, meant it was damaged again.”
Everyone here at Coventry City would like to wish Jodi all the best on his road to recovery.
