**Update: Marvin Jones was limited in practice today, but should be good to go tomorrow after his physical is completed.
Marvin Jones’ absence was procedural - needs to finish his physical. "I’m still good to go … I feel good." #Bengals— Jim Owczarski (@JimOwczarski) May 26, 2015
Marvin Jones told us that he would be out on the practice field tomorrow #Bengals— Elise Jesse WLWT (@EliseJesseWLWT) May 26, 2015
Nothing comes easy for Bengals wide receiver Marvin Jones.
After spending the entire 2014 season on the shelf with foot and ankle injuries, Jones spent the offseason (to date) working out, showing videos of his west-coast sprints and overall improvement so that when this moment came, he'd be healthy and ready.
Unfortunately, he's not. As OTA practice began on Tuesday, Jones stretched with the team and then joined the sideline-crew to workout with Vontaze Burfict, Sean Porter and Rey Maualuga; all of whom are nursing injuries or undergoing rehabilitation work. The cause for Jones? A hamstring.
Jones looks fine running in rehab group. Hearing he had hamstring tweak last week— Geoff Hobson (@GeoffHobsonCin) May 26, 2015
Also, WR Marvin Jones warmed up with the team but working out on the side instead of practicing with WRs.— Paul Dehner Jr. (@pauldehnerjr) May 26, 2015
According to reports, the injury isn't serious and Jones had a smile on his face as he shook hands with Mike Brown.
