Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones is one of the players who suffered an injury in Week 3.

After another week of football, the teams of the NFC South have some new injuries to worry about.

The Atlanta Falcons lost wide receiver Julio Jones to a hand injury early in Sunday's win over the Chargers, but Jones was able to return to the game. He finished the day with five catches for 67 yards and a touchdown.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive end Adrian Clayborn suffered a knee injury in the second half of the team's loss to Dallas, and the severity of the injury is unknown at this point. Teammates are concerned about Clayborn potentially missing time.

New Orleans Saints linebacker David Hawthorne had to leave early with a hamstring injury, and he was not able to return. He finished with two tackles.

The Carolina Panthers were without running back Jonathan Stewart in Week 3. Stewart, who is working his way through an ankle injury, has only been able to play in one game this season.
