Washington's Sidney Jones Suffers A Significant Leg Injury At Pro Day

Washington Huskies cornerback Sidney Jones was taken off on a cart Saturday during the team's Pro Day, and had his left leg elevated, according to Christian Caple of the Tacoma News Tribune.

Yahoo Sports' Eric Edholm reports that Jones is believed to have suffered a torn Achilles, but that the injury will not be confirmed until he undergoes an MRI. Jones, a two-time All-Pac-12 selection and a projected first-round pick, went down as he was running during a drill, and had to be helped off the field by two people - one of whom was UW coach Chris Petersen - without his left leg touching the ground. Jones had his left leg elevated as the cart left the facility.

The 6-foot, 180-pound Jones had eight interceptions in three seasons with Washington, including a career-high four in 2015. It also doesn't hurt that he comes from a Washington program that has turned first-round picks into star corners such as Desmond Trufant and Marcus Peters.

If Jones ends up selected in the late second or early third round, he certainly could end up being the steal of this draft class. "The last drill. The last thing you've got to do, and that happens". Ross, who broke the National Football League combine record with a 4.22-second 40-yard dash, only participated in position drills, running routes and catching passes from former Skyline High quarterback Jake Heaps.

"I went out there on Monday and had a good outing, and I just wanted to be consistent", he said.
