Interim manager Ryan Giggs confirmed that Jones (shoulder) would be fit for the World Cup after hurting his left shoulder in a collision on Tuesday, reports the Daily Mail.

Jones left Tuesday's match and went to the hospital with his arm in a sling. Immediate reports suggested the injury could take as long as a month to recover from with ligament damage, however the damage is not as bad as feared and Giggs indicated the defender should be fine for the World Cup next month.

Jones returned from a hip injury and scored a goal in the 34th minute of Manchester United's 3-0 win over West Brom on Saturday.

Jones was not expected to be fit for another week, so it was surely a boost to see him back on the pitch Saturday. He certainly isn't a big-time goal scorer, and he makes for a tough short-term fantasy play, with matches against Liverpool, West Ham, and Manchester City coming up.
