Marvin Jones of the Bengals Out with Foot Injury
Third-year wide receiver for the Cincinnati Bengals, Marvin Jones, sustained a left foot injury during Saturday's practice at the Paul Brown Stadium. Coincidentally, Jones suffered what is called a "Jones Fracture." These fractures can be tiny stress fractures or an acute and sudden break in the foot. Jones fractures are caused by repetitive stress, overuse of the foot, or trauma.
Jones had surgery over the weekend and it consisted of having a pin placed in the fifth metatarsal bone. It is likely that he will miss the rest of preseason and the first month of the 2014 NFL season (first three games). The Bengals hope that he will be able to return after the bye week for the game against the New England Patriots, scheduled Oct. 5 at 8:30 pm.
