Marvin Jones expected to miss three games with broken foot

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Marvin Jones is expected to miss up to three games with a broken foot that required surgery in his left foot.

Bengals coach Marvin Lewis downplayed the severity of the injury.

"He doesn't have a severe injury that should keep him out for very long," Lewis said.

Jones got hurt in practice Saturday. Jones caught 59 passes for 842 yards and 10 touchdowns last season, including the playoffs.

"Obviously he's a huge part of what we do," Bengals offensive coordinator Hue Jackson said. "We'll miss him 'til we get him back, but at the same time, I can't worry about it. We have good guys, good players, and it's always the next man up. We'll keep firing up the guys we have."
