The Bengals got some great news today on the injury front, as wide receiver Marvin Jones was able to take to the practice field today in hopes of playing Sunday vs the New York Jets:
Jones has shown he’s a reliable weapon in his second year with the team, already registering 16 catches for 247 yards and three scores in just seven games this season. In his last two games alone, Jones has seven grabs for 128 yards and two scores.
If he can play Sunday, it will be a great boost vs an elite Jets defense. It also helps having defensive end Wallace Gilberry back to add to Cincinnati’s pass-rush.
