Colts Injury Update: Arthur Jones week-to-week

By on 9/17/2014 11:45:00 PM

During the Indianapolis Colts’ Loss to the Philadelphia Eagles this Monday, defensive end Arthur Jones suffered an injury. After being carted off the field, SI WIRE of reported that Jones was sent for X-rays and it was confirmed he had an ankle sprain. 

Unfortunately for the Colts, and Jones for that matter, the sprain is a bad one and will keep the 28-year-old former fifth round pick off the field and watching from the sidelines. Ian Rapoport of tweeted this out yesterday. 
Now there is always a chance that Jones’ rehab goes well and everything comes up roses; he comes back from injury early and the Colts don’t feel the loss that much. The problem with sprains is that they can always lead to more. Indy recently signed Jones to a 33 million dollar deal, so you can be sure they’ll want to see him rehab and get healthy again, but not at the expense of another injury. 

The Colts are scheduled to take on the Jacksonville Jaguars this Sunday. Both teams have started the year off with a 0 - 2 record.
