INDIANAPOLIS -- Chad Jones and Terrell Thomas joined their teammates in Indianapolis for Super Bowl XLVI.

Players like Jones and Thomas, who are injured and have been out for the season, flew into town late in the week to join the team. Back in Super Bowl XLII, injured players like Mathias Kiwanuka, who had been on injured reserve, were in attendance at the Super Bowl.

Jones, the team's third-round pick in 2010, is still making his way back from a gruesome car accident that nearly killed him on June 25, 2010.

He has been making impressive progress and plans on making his comeback this year. The Giants organization has supported Jones throughout his comeback and retained him on the reserve/non-football injury list.

Thomas has been on injured reserve since the preseason when he suffered a season-ending knee injury. He has been rehabbing and hopes to re-sign with the Giants. His contract expires at the end of this season. A source expects the productive cornerback to return.
