Report: Colts DL Jones will have ankle surgery


The Sports Xchange

Indianapolis Colts defensive lineman Arthur Jones reportedly will require surgery to repair torn ligaments in his left ankle.

Jones, 29, was injured against the St. Louis Rams last weekend and received several opinions on the ankle this week, NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport reported Wednesday.

Jones is expected to be placed on injured reserve, which would mean he is out for at least half the season.

Jones signed a five-year, $33 million contract with the Colts last year but played in just nine games due to a high ankle sprain.
