Jones starts for Braves after missing two games

CBSSports.com wire reports

ATLANTA -- Chipper Jones is starting for the Braves against the Brewers after missing two games with swelling in his surgically repaired left knee.

Jones is back at third base and hitting third for the Braves in Sunday's game.

He had arthroscopic surgery on March 26 to repair a torn meniscus in the knee and missed the first four games of the season. He had the knee drained before the Braves' home opener on Friday night. He said there was still some swelling on Saturday.

Jones homered in his first game back on Tuesday night in Houston and added two hits on Wednesday night. He says it was not a big surprise he had swelling in the knee after the flight back to Atlanta.
