During his Friday press conference, Bengals head coach Zac Taylor revealed that Charlie Jones suffered a shoulder injury during Thursday’s practice. Jones is now considered day-to-day.

All in all, good news for Jones and the Bengals after he had to leave practice on the medical cart.

Here’s to hoping Jones is back soon and we get to see him in preseason action, which kicks off next Friday vs. the Green Bay Packers.

The Cincinnati Bengals nearly made it out of Thursday's practice without a notable injury. However, wide receiver Charlie Jones suffered an injury late in practice, which led to him being carted to the locker room.

Following a great diving grab during 11-on-11 work, Jones went to the sideline to be examined by trainers while favoring his left arm/shoulder.

After several minutes, Jones was carted to the locker room for further evaluation.

Thankfully, Jones later said he was fine during locker-room interviews.

A fourth-round rookie by way of the Purdue Boilermakers, Jones has been having a solid camp thus far as he looks to earn playing time on a roster that already has Ja’Marr Chase, Tee Higgins, and Tyler Boyd commanding most of the targets. With Boyd almost a lock to be gone next year when his contract expires, the hope was Jones could develop into a suitable replacement over the next year while also potentially contributing as a punt returner.

We will update this story if more details on Jones’ injury become available.
