Bears running back Kevin Jones has suffered another devastating injury.
After a solid start to his career, Jones has now sustained a Lisfranc fracture in his foot, a torn ACL, and now this ankle injury.
His recovery period will take up to ten months. Jones re-signed in Chicago in March, and is due $1.15 million in base salary in 2010.
With Jones out for the year, Chicago will roll with Garrett Wolfe and Adrian Peterson as Matt Forte’s backups. Peterson looked unlikely to make the team before, so it’s possible the Bears will be watching the wire for running back help.
