Chipper Jones Injury Update?

Chipper Jones may have played his last game in the major leagues after suffering a terrible injury. He teared up his left knee while fielding a ground ball.
The injury will probably require surgery and it may be the end of Chipper Jones' career. He had already said he would mull retirement after the season.

What is the latest update on Chipper Jones Injury? Is he going to be able to play after this?

The great Chipper Jones has been lost for the season and perhaps forever.

Chipper Jones's injury: a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee.
When he reviewed the results of an MRI exam performed Thursday, Braves orthopedist Dr. Marvin Royster saw a partial tear that stretched out the ligament to the point that it wasn't able to keep the knee stable. While Jones may seek a second opinion, he has the utmost respect for Royster, who repaired the third baseman's torn left ACL before the start of the 1994 season.

Chipper Jones is going to have to rehab the knee. At issue is whether he feels he will, approaching age 39 on a leg twice surgically repaired, can continue to perform at the level to which he’s accustomed. If Chipper’s answer is yes, chances are he’ll be back in 2011.
