Virginia running back Perris Jones underwent spinal surgery at the University of Louisville Medical Center on Friday, one day after he was hurt in the Cavaliers’ 31-24 loss to Louisville.
In a statement posted to X, the school said the surgery was successful and that Jones was able to briefly walk Saturday morning.
Virginia said Jones remains under observation and will be transferred to the Frazier Rehabilitation Institute in Louisville for further care when his medical team deems appropriate. A Virginia official had previously announced that Jones had movement in all his extremities.
