I just got an update from my ESPN app that Atlanta thinks Julio maybe done for the season as well.
CBS Sports is just regurgitating Glazer's info:http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/eye-on-foo ... oot-injury
As if losing at home to the Jets on Monday Night Football to fall to 1-4 wasn't bad enough, the news could be considerably worse for the Falcons. 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 8 catches for 99 yards against the Jets, and 41 catches for 580 yards and 2 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 8 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.
There's Harry Douglas, but he's more comfortable in the slot. There's also Drew Davis and Kevin Cone. The former doesn't have a regular-season reception in 31 games and the latter recorded his first catch Monday night.
Put another way: Quarterback Matt Ryan will be relying heavily on tight end Tony Gonzalez, while praying that running back Steven Jackson and White can get healthy in a hurry. Because Ryan behind the Falcons' banged-up offensive line with no legitimate playmakers is going to look a lot worse than 1-4.
