According to Jones, he has been suffering from a Lisfranc injury, which effects the mid-foot area.
"Jones said it was diagnosed as a Lisfranc injury, the same ailment Houston Texans quarterback Matt Schaub had last year.
“Ligaments in your mid-foot tear,” Jones said. “It’s frustrating, and it’s very painful, but there was no way I was missing this one.”
The surgery will sideline Jones for three to four months, and will prevent his participation in the NFL Scouting Combine in February.
