Report: Jacoby Jones expected to miss 4-6 weeks with an MCL sprain

According to Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.com,  Ravens wide receiver Jacoby Jones is expected to miss the next 4-6 weeks after spraining his MCL during Thursday night’s blow out loss to the Broncos.

Per a league source, Jones suffered a sprained MCL in his right knee during Thursday night’s regular-season opener.  He’ll likely miss 4-6 weeks.

The MCL is a rope-like ligament that becomes frayed when sprained.  Most tears not involving complete severing of the ligament can heal with rest.  Jones’ expected absence meshes with a Grade II MCL sprain, which should heal without surgery.

While Jones is resting his knee,  the Ravens will continue to wait and see if they actually have a number one receiver on their roster.
