Simon Jones undergoes more scans

Cricinfo staff

Worcestershire are awaiting the results of scans on Simon Jones to find out if he is likely to be able to play again in the near future.

Jones, who has been dogged by injury since he was forced to miss the final Test of the 2005 Ashes series, underwent surgery on his knee in April and at the time it was expected he would be able to play the second half of the summer. A comeback in the second team had tentatively been set for June 30, but his knee is still causing concern and so the county have sent him for another scan.

"We'll know more in the week," Steve Rhodes, the county's director of cricket, told the Press Association. "We're waiting for some stuff from the surgeon. We've got the results of scans and tests and all sorts of stuff to come and we'll get the surgeon to tell us what's going on. Then we'll know exactly what the plan of attack will be."
