Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones expects to attend the team’s season opener after undergoing hip replacement surgery last Friday, the Associated Press reports.

The surgery is the second for Jones, who turns 73 in October, within two months. His right hip was replaced last week, and his left was replaced on July 21.

Team spokesman Rich Dalrymple said Jones is “doing great” after the procedure, and that he is “looking forward to being pain-free in a few weeks, which hasn’t been the case for several months in the past.”

The Cowboys, who are expected to battle the Eagles for the top spot in the NFC East this season, kick off their 2015 season against the Giants at home on Sunday.
