Jerry Jones has hip replacement, plans to be at start of Cowboys camp
IRVING, Texas -- Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has undergone left hip replacement surgery. He plans to be with the team as usual when training camp starts in California this week.
Team spokesman Rich Dalrymple says Jones had the procedure last Tuesday and "has been mobile and walking comfortably for the past few days." Dalrymple said Jones also was planning to have his right hip replaced soon.
The 72-year-old Jones has been bothered by the hip for about a year. He was seen having trouble walking some stairs during offseason workouts this spring at the team's headquarters.
Jones is planning to conduct his traditional camp-opening news conference Wednesday in Oxnard, California. The team's first workout is Thursday.
