Marvin Jones could be red-zone threat upon return
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

The Bengals have totaled six touchdowns in 10 trips inside the red zone through three games. All but one of those touchdowns have come on the ground.

The Bengals, who are on a bye Week 4, would like to improve their red-zone touchdown rate and could get help in that area very shortly as receiver Marvin Jones is set to return from a foot injury in Week 5.

"Obviously that's one area where, through all our great self-scout that we do this week and through the bye week, it's what we've got to get better at," wide receivers coach James Urban said about the lack of red-zone scoring, per ESPN. "We have to score touchdowns. We can't just keep settling for field goals. At some point quickly that becomes critical, and obviously the natural inclination with Marv scoring 10 touchdowns last year is that hopefully that helps." 

Jones was targeted 14 times in the red zone last season. He had 12 red-zone catches and nine red-zone touchdowns in 2013.
