Washington CB Sidney Jones reportedly suffers torn Achilles

Standout cornerback Sidney Jones suffered an apparent lower leg injury at Washington's pro day on Saturday, according to reports. The Seattle Times reported Jones suffered a torn Achilles tendon.

NFL Network's Daniel Jeremiah reported he received texts from multiple scouts at the pro day saying it sounds like it is a significant injury. Jones was carted off the field.

Jones is ranked as NFL Network draft guru Mike Mayock's No. 1 cornerback in the 2017 NFL Draft. Jones ran a 4.47 40-yard dash in Indianapolis. In nearly every NFL.com mock draft, Jones comes off the board in the first 15 picks.

This is a potentially devastating blow to Jones. This tweet was posted to his account late Saturday:
