Jermaine Jones may have broken nose in collision
Jermaine Jones, who was one of the heroes in the US’ tie with Portugal at the World Cup on Sunday, may be pulling a Clint Dempsey next week.
Jones was involved in a collision with teammate Alejandro Bedoya during the second half of the US’ 1-0 loss to Germany in Group G play Thursday. You could see blood trickling down his nose following the collision.
After the game, ESPN reporter Jeremy Schaap tweeted that Jones said he thought his nose was broken.
If Jones’ nose was broken, he’d be joining Dempsey, whose face was rearranged in the US’ victory over Ghana. Dempsey still played in the next two games despite the broken nose. Jones will likely play through it, too.
