The Bengals are fortunate to have a number of threats in the passing game, but they might have one fewer when the season starts.
According to Geoff Hobson of the team’s official website, wide receiver Marvin Jones will miss “a few weeks” after breaking a bone in his foot Saturday.
Surgery was performed to put a pin in his fifth metatarsal. It’s similar to the injury that cost Mohamed Sanu the last month of the 2012 season.
Jones emerged as a playmaker last season, catching 51 passes for 712 yards and 10 touchdowns, and paired with A.J. Green for one of the AFC’s top tandems of wideouts.
But now, they’re going to have to work without him for some time, opening the door for Sanu or Dane Sanzenbacher to play a more prominent role.
