Jones, who spoke with reporters while wearing sun glasses, said he had the surgery on Wednesday.

"It's fine, it went very well," Jones said. "I just had a little surgery and I got that done Wednesday so it's going to work good. It's more retina work. Actually don't know when it was injured, but probably could have been as much as 10-to-15 years ago. It had me where I wasn't hitting the curveball like I know that I can."

In 2010, Jones underwent what he called major surgery for an undisclosed illness. Jones said the surgery wasn't life-threatening or heart-related.

"The bottom line is I have been kinda easing it around a little bit, but that's about over with," Jones told ESPNDallas.com back in 2010. "With a couple of limitations."
