Round NFL draft prospect Sidney Jones suffers torn Achilles

Jones collapsed while doing a backpedaling drill and grabbed his left left.

Today is the University of Washington's pro day.

Former Washington Huskies cornerback Sidney Jones was carted off the field Saturday when he suffered an apparent left leg injury during the school's pro day for draft prospects, according to ESPN.com's Sheil Kapadia.

Once he got to the sideline, Jones stood and consulted with Petersen and a few others before being driven from the Dempsey Indoor facility on the back of an equipment cart. It also doesn't hurt that he comes from a Washington program that has turned first-round picks into star corners such as Desmond Trufant and Marcus Peters. "Definitely sad, but we know Sidney's strong and he's going to still be there".

Ross, another consensus first-round prospect who ran a combine-record 4.22-second 40-yard dash in Indy, wanted to show teams he was more than simply a deep threat by running a number of routes.

With an injury so close to the Draft (approximately a month away) Jones could fall as far as the fourth or fifth round depending on the severity of his injury.

"I just want to come out and finish", Ross said.
