The Cincinnati Bengals will likely be without third-year receiver Marvin Jones for the first three games of the 2014 NFL season. This according to a report from NFL Network reporter, Albert Breer, who reports the Bengals "hope" Jones is back after the first month of the season.

Head coach Marvin Lewis has only said he expects Jones to miss "a few weeks," but if the reports of Jones' broken foot are true, it's more likely to be five-six weeks.

FOX Sports 1's NFL insider Mike Garafolo also reports Jones is expected to miss at least six weeks.

The odds don't favor Jones being on the field before the Bengals' Week 4 bye. His debut could come on Sunday Night Football vs. the New England Patriots in Week 5.

At least he'll possibly be back for then, as that game is going to be an 'all hands on deck' type of game. Cincinnati is good enough to beat the Ravens, Falcons and Titans, their first three opponents.
