After they drafted him, the Eagles said they weren't going to rush second-round pick Sidney Jones back from an Achilles injury he suffered at Washington's pro day.
And just after the Eagles made the pick, Jones agreed with that plan.
"When do I expect to be back?" Jones said on a conference call about an hour after the Eagles drafted him. "The plan is to not rush back at all. We're going to take it slowly … we're not going to rush anything. Of course, I would like to play as soon as possible, but there's no rushing."
But that isn't stopping Jones from working out, walking boot and all.
On Monday, Jones posted videos on Instagram stories of him and fellow Huskies product Budda Baker working out what looks like the Washington weight room.
In the video, Jones is wearing a boot on his left foot and has a heavy-looking chain around his neck.
The Eagles' rookie camp kicks off Friday and while Jones is expected to be in attendance, he obviously won't be practicing. The Eagles haven't given a timetable for his return.
