Apparently Marvin Jones takes practice a little bit more seriously than Allen Iverson. Iverson saw no need for practicing. On the other hand, there's Jones, who feels obligated to practice even with a broken foot.

Bengals offensive coordinator Hue Jackson asked Jones if he could still catch footballs with his broken foot. Jones said yes, so now he's catching 100 balls a day while sitting on a stool.

"Catching is catching," Jones told the Bengals official website week. "Keep my hands right, keep them ready, so when it's right there'll be no drop-off and they'll be no drops."

Here's a brief look at Jones' new stool-catching regimen. The Bengals are hoping that Jones will be ready to return by Week 5, when Cincinnati plays at New England.
