The Falcons' season just keeps going from bad to worse. Last night's loss to the Jets at home dropped them to 1-4, and now there's this:
Breaking: Falcons fear Julio Jones likely OUT for the rest of the year w a foot injury. He's getting a second opinion tomorrow to determine— Jay Glazer (@JayGlazer) October 8, 2013
CBS's Jason La Canfora later cited a source with similar info:
As to @JayGlazer report on Julio Jones likely out for the year, Falcons fearing the worst. "its a legitimate concern," source said— Jason La Canfora (@JasonLaCanfora) October 8, 2013
Jones played 70 snaps last night before getting hurt, and he caught eight passes for 99 yards, including a 46-yard reception. His injury is just the latest blow for a Falcons' offense that has been without running back Steven Jackson since Week 2 and also lost receiver Roddy White last night. Both Jackson and White are nursing hamstring injuries.
