Marvin Jones back at practice - [Full Article]

Bengals wide receiver Marvin Jones returned to practice on Tuesday for the first time since breaking his foot in a controlled scrimmage on Aug. 9.

He looked good and was moving well running through a series of position drills during the one-hour practice, which is the only one scheduled this week. The Bengals have a bye this week.

Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis had said following Sunday's 33-7 win over Tennessee that he expected Jones to return following the bye, which means he will likely be ready to play on Oct. 5 in New England (8:30 p.m.).

Jones was third on the team in receptions last season (51), second in receiving yards (712) and second in touchdown receptions (10).

Fantasy Impact: 

Jones was one of John Paulsen's sleepers heading into drafts this season, but his injury might mean he's a forgotten man in your league. If he's still on your wire, he may be worth adding now if you're looking for WR help. While the Bengals have a bye Week 4, Jones appears to be on track to play in Week 5.
