Adam lay-off confirmed

The Ospreys medical team have received confirmation of the extent of lay-off facing Adam Jones after he suffered an elbow injury during Sunday's Heineken Cup game against London Irish.

Having received the medical reports following the player undergoing a scan earlier this week, Ospreys Head Physio, Chris Towers, has confirmed that Jones could be out for up to eight weeks. He said:

“The scans have confirmed our suspicion of significant ligament damage and soft tissue trauma to the left elbow. We've discussed the case at length, both with orthopaedic specialists and the WRU medical team, and expect that Adam is likely to be out for around eight weeks.”
