Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Marvin Jones surprisingly showed up on the team's Non-Football Injured list Monday afternoon; a mere procedure in the NFL that gives teams an opportunity to secure a roster exemption in September. Being as he's on the Active/NFI list, Jones is eligible to practice with the team as soon as he's medically cleared.
The ailment was listed as an ankle, which he injured while working out with Andy Dalton after OTA's were completed earlier this summer, per Pro Football Talk. They list him as "day-to-day" while concluding that Jones is "expected to practice this week."
All we can say is, good thing that this all went down. After all, we don't need people overreacting with comments, such as "Oh my god, he tore the ACL in his ankle!"
Jones is entering his third season after setting career highs in receptions (51), yards receiving (712), touchdowns (10), average yards per reception (14.0)... and virtually every other statistic last year. Jones and A.J. Green also became the first wide receiver duo in franchise history to score double-digit touchdowns in the same season.
