The Bengals hope that Jones (foot) will be ready to play following their Week 4 bye, NFL Network's Albert Breer reports.

Jones was diagnosed with a broken foot Monday afternoon, which is expected to keep him out for several weeks. There was a previous risk of him beginning the 2014 season on the PUP list, but this report suggests that the Bengals don't plan on going that route. This is actually good news for owners who drafted Jones, as a PUP tag would mean a mandatory absence for the team's first six games. He'll now target a return October 5 against New England, but that will depend largely on the recovery of his surgically repaired foot. Mohamed Sanu should see additional reps in the absence of Jones, while tight ends Jermaine Gresham and Tyler Eifert may also see extra balls thrown their way when top wideout A.J. Green is buried in coverage.

Jones suffered a broken foot and will now miss a "few weeks", The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Jones came off the Bengals' PUP list last week after dealing with an ankle issue during the early portion of training camp. Now, the third-year wideout will probably miss the whole preseason with a broken foot. His absence creates an opportunity for Mohamed Sanu to work with the starters opposite A.J. Green until Jones is healthy.

Bengals placed WR Marvin Jones (ankle), CB Onterio McCalebb (knee) and QB AJ McCarron (shoulder) on the active/PUP list.

None of the injuries are considered serious, though McCarron's throwing shoulder was reportedly a minor issue in the run up to the draft. Jones will likely be activated within the week. It's not a concern for his draft status.

New OC Hue Jackson mentioned Marvin Jones second behind A.J. Green when discussing the Bengals' 2014 wide receiver corps.

It's an indication Jackson sees Jones as the No. 2 to Green's No. 1 after old OC Jay Gruden head-scratchingly insisted on giving Mohamed Sanu snaps at Jones' expense. "I want A.J. and Marvin and that receiver group to play uncommon football like you've never seen," said Jackson. "Marvin Jones came on like gangbusters and he's got to go chase A.J. Why not knock A.J. off the pedestal?"

Marvin Jones played on 63-of-81 snaps (77.7 percent) in the Wild Card loss to the Chargers.

It speaks volumes that in the biggest game of the year, Jones set a season-high for percentage of snaps played. We saw it coming as over the final quarter of the year, the Bengals coaches finally recognized him as a superior playmaker to Mohamed Sanu. During the final four games, he played on 211-of-306 snaps (68.9 percent) and posted 24 catches for 324 yards with two touchdowns. With this kind of usage and Jones' explosive skill set, he'll take a major up arrow into 2014.
