Sidney Jones, a potential first-round draft pick, injured his left leg during defensive back drills in pro-day workouts at the University of Washington on Saturday.
The Washington cornerback was taken to a local hospital, where the injury was being evaluated, a source told ESPN’s Adam Caplan.
Washington WR John Ross and Stanford RB Christian McCaffrey both put on a show at the NFL combine. Where did they jump to in Todd McShay’s latest prospect rankings for the 2017 NFL draft?
How much will free agency and changes at quarterback affect the draft? We don’t know just yet, but Mel Kiper is happy to speculate. Here is his second attempt at projecting the 2017 draft.
Jones was performing one of his final drills of the session when he quickly pulled up and went down to the turf at the Dempsey Indoor Center.
As he was starting to make a break out of his backpedal, Jones immediately began favoring his left leg and tumbled to the ground. Jones began to grab at the underside of his leg after coming to a stop.
He was helped to his feet by fellow defensive back Budda Baker and to the sideline by Washington head coach Chris Petersen.
After a brief conversation on the sideline, Jones hopped on the back of a cart and was taken out of the building.
