Cincinnati Bengals WR Marvin Jones (ankle) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Tuesday, Oct. 14.

News you need to know

From Mark Wimer's Monday injury report (Mon Oct 20): Jones was sent to IR last week due to the foot/ankle injury that has plagued him all year - after suffering a setback with the injury in practice a couple weeks ago the team decided to shut him down for the year.

Week 8: vs Baltimore Ravens

Mark and Joe say: Tough matchup. Without A.J. Green in the lineup, the Bengals offense has sputtered, and last weekend it came to a grinding halt, producing just 18/38 for 126 yards passing for Andy Dalton. Mohamed Sanu led the team with nine targets for 3/54/0 receiving; Jermaine Gresham converted 12 targets into 10/48/0 - and those were the top two receivers last weekend. YUCK! The good news is that Green sounds like he is close to returning - keep an eye on his practice status this week in Footballguys.com's Players in the News. Until Green gets back to menace teams up the field, it looks like the Bengals' passing offense is going to be a bad fantasy call. Stay tuned to this developing personnel situation before inserting any Bengal in your lineup this week. The Ravens are a tough draw with or without Green - they lead the NFL with only 104 points allowed this season, and are ranked 24th in terms of passing yards allowed per game (258.4), with seven passing TDs given up balanced by four interceptions (tied-18th in the NFL) and 15 sacks (tied-16th) generated. Matt Ryan was sacked five times for -42 yards last week on the way to 29/44 for 186 net yards, one TD and zero interceptions; Mike Glennon was dumped five times for -37 yards to get to 24/44 for 277 net yards passing, two TDs and one interception thrown. Cincinnati is second in the NFL with only six sacks allowed to date - they are pass blocking fairly well so far. This looks like a tough matchup for the struggling Bengals' attack.

Bengals | Marvin Jones seeing specialist (Tue Oct 14, 12:03 PM) - Cincinnati Bengals WR Marvin Jones (ankle) will see a foot specialist to have his right ankle examined Tuesday, Oct. 14, according to a source. Jones will evaluate the injury and weigh his options with respect to what the team should to with his injury-list status.

Our View: We haven't seen Jones at all this season, and he only participated in a total of five practices this year since training camp. There's a good chance that Jones broke his other foot trying to overcompensate for his right ankle injury. Surgery is being discussed as a possibility.
