WR Marvin Jones sidelined with broken foot-- Mon Aug 11 6:05 pm --
Expected to miss as much as 5-6 weeks
The big injury has finally hit the Bengals this preseason when they revealed Monday that WR Marvin Jones had a pin put in his fifth metatarsal, indicating some kind of fracture that HC Marvin Lewis says will keep him out ďa couple of weeks.Ē
Jones could be out at least five weeks and probably six. WR Mohamed Sanu, the man that replaces Jones in the starting lineup, had a similar injury with five weeks left in the 2012 season and was lost for the year and he didnít play in the postseason.(Bengals.com)
FF Today's Take:Jones' fantasy stock likely took a bit of a hit when new run-centric OC Hue Jackson took over for Jay Gruden this offseason, but this news takes a lot of luster off a player that had some low-end fantasy WR3 appeal. It is a bit ironic that Sanu suffered a similar injury last season and stands to benefit the most from his absence. Consider Jones as a late-round flyer at best now and Sanu as a late-round sleeper if Jones is eventually placed on the PUP list.
