Julio Jones Injury: Falcons Wide Receiver Leaves Game With Hamstring Issue

A Julio Jones injury is the last thing the Atlanta Falcons needed as they look to come back during their Sunday Night Football meeting with the Green Bay Packers, but that's exactly what happened. The wide receiver went to the locker room with a hamstring injury during the fourth quarter.

Jones was held in check throughout the game with only one catch for 16 yards and the play. Unfortunately, the play that caused the injury wasn't even one where Jones was being targeted as he ran a deep route by Packers cornerback Sam Shields.

The Atlanta Falcons' official Twitter account reports that Jones is questionable to return, which is unfortunate news for the rookie during the fourth quarter of what should have been one of his best games of the year against the Packers' spotty defensive secondary.
