Julio Jones Out For Season

Monday Night Football to fall to 1-4. Wide receiver Julio Jones is likely out for the season with a foot injury, reports FOX Sports‘ Jay Glazer.

A team source tells CBS NFL Insider Jason La Canfora that the injury is a “legitimate concern.”

Jones is expected to get a second opinion Wednesday.

“[The] initial determination by Falcons is that Jones’ season is over,” Glazer tweeted Tuesday afternoon. “They are hopeful [a] second opinion says otherwise, but [they're] not optimistic.”

Jones had emerged as one of the NFL’s best young talents. He had eight catches for 99 yards against the Jets, and 41 catches for 580 yards and two TDs on the season. In 2012, Jones hauled in 79 receptions for 1,198 yards and 10 TDs, and that was after a rookie season of 54 catches, 959 yards and eight TDs.

The Falcons were without their other big-play receiver, Roddy White, for much of Monday night. He was sidelined with a hamstring issue, and that was on top of the high-ankle sprain he has been battling since the preseason. If Jones’ season truly is over, that leaves a depth chart woefully short on experienced wideouts.
