Entrance Physical: OT Broderick Jones

Welcome to a new series, the “entrance physicals”.  We will evaluate each new player added by the Pittsburgh Steelers with a focus on current health and past injures.  As always, these reports are based on publicly available information, including player interviews, injury reports and reliable news sources.  I have no access to the players’ medical records and have not examined them or discussed this with them unless otherwise noted.

In the first round of the 2023 NFL Draft, the Steelers made a trade with the New England Patriots, moving up from the 17th pick to select Georgia offensive tackle Broderick Jones with the 14th overall pick.

Lower leg injury. In the summer of 2020, Jones sustained a lower leg injury in a motorbike accident. Reports did not clarify whether this was a motorcycle, motorized scooter, or an ATV. Jones regularly rode all of them at the time. No ligament, muscle or bone injuries occurred. Recovery time was reported to be 1-2 months. He was able to participate in preseason practice by mid-August 2020 and the injury was not an issue his freshman season.

He made his debut against South Carolina on Nov. 28.
