Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Marvin Jones broke his foot in practice Saturday and will be out "a few weeks" according to a report from Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com. Hobson also reported that Jones underwent surgery to put a pin in his foot. 

The 24-year-old Jones had a breakout season last year, catching 51 passes for 712 yards and 10 TDs. In Week 8 against the Jets, Jones caught eight passes for 122 yards and four touchdowns.
