Jones underwent surgery Tuesday to address a sports hernia, and he is expected to be sidelined for a number of weeks, reports.

Jones will surely miss the Revs' season-opener March 8 against Seattle, and could miss a number of fixtures depending on how quickly he can return to fitness. He played the full 90 minutes for US Men's National Team on Sunday against Panama and didn't appear to be bothered by any kind of issue, making the surgery news quite surprising.

Jones signed a designated player contract with the New England Revolution of Major League Soccer on Sunday, reports.

Jones' stock rose considerably after a number of fine performances for the U.S. during the World Cup. He was heavily linked to the Chicago Fire earlier this summer, but apparently ended up with the Revs following a blind draw between the two clubs. He was out of contract after his deal with Turkish side Besiktas expired in June, and he'll join the Revs immediately.

Jones suffered a broken nose during a collision with teammate Alejandro Bedoya during the United States' final group stage match against Germany on Thursday, the Associated Press reports.

Jones is the second US player to suffer a broken nose in the tournament after Clint Dempsey was knocked in the face during their opening match against Ghana. Jones said he will not be wearing a mask for the round of 16 match against Belgium on Tuesday, and the fracture reportedly is not causing any discoloration.

Jones scored in the 64th minute to initially draw the United States even with Portugal in an eventual 2-2 draw Sunday at the World Cup.

Jones has arguably been the United States' best player through two games, and his goal Sunday was an absolute strike from distance. Portugal hit the final equalizer with only seconds remaining, denying the Americans an opportunity to clinch a knockout round spot Sunday. However, the US will advance with at least a draw against Germany on Thursday.

Jones was credited with an assist on Clint Dempsey's goal 35 seconds into USA's 2-1 win over Ghana in their opening match of the World Cup on Monday.

Dempsey did most of the work to get himself in shooting position, so the assist is a pretty generous one for Jones. That being said, Jones was all over the field Monday and arguably the US' best player on the field. Up next is a solid opportunity Sunday against Portugal, who will likely be without two starting defenders.

Jones officially joined Turkish side Besiktas, reports.

Jones has been battling for minutes at Schalke and joins a Besiktas side that will enable him to play more first team football ahead of this summer's World Cup. Besiktas has the option to purchase Jones outright after the season, as his contract with Schalke expires this summer.

Jones (knee) is back in the starting lineup for Tuesday's UEFA Champions League match against Chelsea, according to Fox Sports 1's pregame show.

His knee has been bad enough to suggest he needed surgery, so this is a remarkable turnaround. With Marco Hoger out for the season, he and Schalke decided to push it for Tuesday's game.

Jones has been dropped from the U.S. squad for its final World Cup qualifier at Panama due to his on-going knee injury, ESPN FC reports.

Jones' knee issue has hampered him a bit lately, including keeping him out of a Bundesliga match against FC Augsburg on October 5. The U.S. is keeping him out with the hope he can recover for his next league match against TSV Eintracht Braunschweig on October 19.
