Julio Jones surgery Saturday

Alabama WR Julio Jones is going to have surgery on his foot this Saturday.

That according to ESPN’s Chris Mortensen via his twitter account.

mortreport Julio Jones will have screw inserted in foot Saturday in Charlotte by noted specialist Dr. Robert Anderson, agent Jimmy Sexton confirms.

A fracture in Jones’ foot was discovered during his medical exam at the NFL combine, but he still ran a 4.39 40-time and had a ridiculous broad jump of better than 11 feet, the best at the combine. He’s forecast to be one of the top two receivers off the board along with Georgia’s A.J. Green.

Obviously this foot surgery could compromise that though he’s likely to be helped by how things turned out with 49ers WR Michael Crabtree, who had a foot problem and couldn’t perform at the combine only to be drafted 10th overall by San Francisco, and went on to lead all rookie receivers in receiving yards per game.
