Jones and Joseph’s Injuries a Concern as Camp Approaches

Levi Jones

The Bengals are expressing concern about two top players that may not be ready for training camp once it kicks off on July 27th.  Those two players are offensive tackle Levi Jones and corner Johnathan Joseph.  Jones has yet to take a snap this spring, as he tries to come back after having two arthroscopic knee surgeries.  He hurt his knee vs the Bucs last season on October 15th.  Joseph is attempting to get back on the field after having a left foot injury.  The injury took place back on June 2nd at a minicamp, when he fratcured a bone in his left foot covering Chad Johnson.

Head coach Marvin Lewis has stated that both players will be ready to go when camp starts, but if either are not, the Bengals are going to suffer in the depth department, as the teams backups are clearly not the strength of the roster.  Andrew Whitworth would take over for Jones, and first round pick Leon Hall from Michigan would take over for Joseph.
