Jones (ankle) was placed on the Bengals' injured reserve list Tuesday, ruling him out for this season, ESPN reports.

Jones' 2014 season comes to a close with zero games played, after a broken foot during training camp was compounded by an ankle injury upon his return to practice this month. The third-year wideout's ankle problem reportedly dates back to February and caused Jones to visit a foot specialist Tuesday in North Carolina. Following 51 receptions for 712 yards and 10 touchdowns in a breakout year last season, Jones will now be forced to prepare for a comeback year in 2015. As a result, Mohamed Sanu should continue to enjoy an expanded role in the Bengals' offense, particularly while A.J. Green (toe) remains sidelined.

Coach Marvin Lewis relayed Monday that he isn't seeing any progress with Jones (ankle), Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official site reports.

The same report refers to A.J. Green (toe) as day-to-day, but at this stage, it appears that of the two, Jones is further away from a return to action.

At this stage, there is no clear timetable for Jones' return, with the Bengals' official site suggesting that surgery could end up being considered for the wideout, who has yet to play this season due to foot and ankle issues.

Such an outcome is speculative, but what is clear is that Jones, is iffy, at best, for Week 7's contest against the Colts, a game in which the Bengals are slated to be without top wideout A.J. Green.

Jones (ankle) has been officially ruled out for Sunday's game against the Panthers, Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official site reports.

With the availability of A.J. Green (toe) already in doubt, the confirmed absence of Jones ensures extra targets available for Mohamed Sanu. Additionally, the Bengals will almost certainly find extra snaps for Brandon Tate and Dane Sanzenbacher.

Though Jones (ankle) didn't practice this week, he is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Panthers, the Bengals' official site reports.

Fellow wideout A.J. Green is also listed as questionable, but at this point it would be a surprise if either player was available for Sunday's 1:00 ET kickoff, a notion put forth by the Cincinnati Enquirer. If the duo sits this weekend, the Bengals' Week 6 wideout corps would be in line to be headed by Mohamed Sanu, with Brandon Tate, Dane Sanzenbacher and James Wright also in the mix.

Jones (ankle) didn't practice Thursday, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

The same applies to A.J. Green, with the duo looking very iffy for Sunday's game against the Panthers. We'll revisit Jones' status Friday, but if both players are out this weekend, the Bengals' Week 6 wideout corps would likely be headed by Mohamed Sanu, Brandon Tate and Dane Sanzenbacher.

Jones (ankle) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Patriots, ESPN's Coley Harvey reports.

Given the doubtful designation, as well as Sunday's 8:30 ET kickoff, Jones is one to avoid this week, with Mohamed Sanu in line to continue to start at wideout for the Bengals opposite A.J. Green in Week 5.

Jones (ankle) missed practice again Friday, the Bengals' official site reports.

We'll have to see how the Bengals officially list Jones for Sunday night's game against the Patriots, but at this stage, he looks iffy, at best, for the contest, a notion echoed by the Cincinnati Enquirer.
