Jermaine Jones‘ injury woes continue after his latest setback in The Revs weekend draw with LA Galaxy, where he picked up a left groin strain.
The 33-year-old powerhouse was substituted just after the half hour mark after pulling up and Jones revealed some worrying news surrounding the extent of the injury, reported by nesoccertoday.com.
“Trust me, it’s really bad. I worked to come back and felt good, and now I have more pain than before. Nobody’s happy with that. It’s not good.”
Jones had already missed New England Revolution‘s opening five games of the season as he recovered from his sports hernia surgery and now it seems he is set for some more time on the sideline with this injury.

“I feel the same pain that I got before the surgery. This time, I feel it a little bit more than before I got the operation. I cannot move and put my leg up, so I feel that I’m not able to keep going.”
Jones will more than likely miss the US Men’s National Team‘s fixtures against the Netherlands, June 5 and Germany, June 10.
USMNT and New England Revolution fans will be nervously awaiting the results revealing the extent of Jones’ injury and will hope he will not be sidelined for another lengthy spell.
