Lewis Says Adam Jones Is Welcome To Return In 2011

Sounds like Marvin Lewis would like to see more of Adam Jones, as he says the CB would be welcome back to the team next season as he tries to comeback from his latest neck injury:

The Bengals expect cornerback Adam “Pacman” Jones to come back after surgery for a herniated disk in his neck. Jones went on injured reserve Tuesday with the neck injury, ending his comeback season. Jones got hurt late in a loss to Atlanta on Sunday and his agent said doctors have recommended surgery. The cornerback will get another opinion before making his decision. Coach Marvin Lewis confirmed on Wednesday that surgery is likely, but Jones could be back by next season. “At some point, Adam will have surgery — once the doctors feel it’s time — with the hopes that he’ll be back and ready to play next season,” Lewis said. “That would be the outlook that he’s looking for. So, that’s kind of where it is. “It’s a tough thing on him. This is important to him, and I think he’s shown that as he’s gone about his daily life. This is important and he’s made such huge steps and strides. Maybe this is another positive that he can use and turn around to help others that come down the line after him.”
