The Bengals are expecting injured wide receiver Marvin Jones to miss the first three games of the regular season.
Jones, who broke a bone in his foot on Saturday, is expected to miss the Bengals’ three September games and then return when Cincinnati comes back from its bye week at New England on October 5, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.
The 24-year-old Jones emerged as the Bengals’ No. 2 wide receiver last season, catching 51 passes for 712 yards and 10 touchdowns. While he’s out, the Bengals will count on Mohamed Sanu and Dane Sanzenbacher to pick up the slack.
