Falcons’ Jones Could Miss Season

Falcons_Julio_Jones_1ATLANTA — The Atlanta Falcons are concerned that wide receiver Julio Jones will miss the remainder of the season with a foot injury, a league source confirmed to ESPN.com.

Falcons coach Mike Smith addressed Jones’ status during a news conference Tuesday afternoon, saying it was “premature” to call it a season-ending injury.

But Smith acknowledged that “the first diagnosis was not encouraging” before confirming that Jones will seek a second opinion Wednesday in Charlotte, N.C.
