Cowboys owner Jerry Jones had his right replaced last Friday and is “doing great,” son Stephen Jones said.
It is the second hip replacement surgery Jerry Jones has had in six weeks. He had his left hip replaced earlier this summer.
Jones, who turns 73 next month, will attend Sunday night’s game against the Giants at AT&T Stadium, according to Cowboys spokesman Rich Dalrymple. Jones cheered on his grandson, Paxton, on Wednesday night at Highland Park Middle School’s game against Sherman.
Jones, an All-Southwest Conference offensive lineman at Arkansas, had been bothered by his balky hips for a while. After his initial surgery, Jones used a golf cart to get around most of the time during training camp last month in Oxnard, Calif.
Given how well that procedure went, though, Jones decided to get his right hip taken care of before the season.
“Jerry’s doing great,” Dalrymple said. “He’s excited to have both procedures behind him before the season begins. He’s looking forward to being pain-free in a few weeks, which hasn’t been the case for several months. He’s very much looking forward to being at the game Sunday.”
