TAMPA — The Bucs’ run of finger injuries continues.
Running back Ronald Jones is scheduled to have a surgical procedure today to have a pin placed in his broken pinkie finger.
Jones played the entirety of the Bucs’ 26-14 win over the Vikings on Sunday. He rushed 18 times for 80 yards and a touchdown.
But X-rays revealed a broken pinkie finger, and the procedure was scheduled for Tuesday.
Receiver Chris Godwin sustained a similar injury against the Raiders earlier this season but only missed one game.
If Jones is out, the Bucs will likely have to turn to Leonard Fournette, who was a healthy scratch Sunday. The Bucs benched Fournette in favor of LeSean McCoy, who responded with four carries for 32 yards to start the second half.
Jones is enjoying a career season, with 900 yards rushing and six touchdowns on 180 carries.
