Shortly after setting a franchise record for receiving yards and becoming the league’ leader in the 2014 season, Julio Jones suffered a hip injury.

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones could very well miss time with a hip injury he suffered in the team’s 43-37 loss to the Green Bay Packers on Monday Night Football.
Jones set a franchise record with 259 receiving yards and also became the Falcons’ all-time leader in receiving yards in a season with 1,428 this year, but missed the final critical moments of the game after suffering a hip injury. He currently holds the NFL lead for receiving yards.
“It was very tough,” Jones said, via ESPN.com. “Last year, I missed the majority of the season with a broken foot. And that came back into my mind when I wasn’t able to go back out there with my teammates and fight with them at the end of the game. I’ll be OK. I just have to get treatment this week, and we’ll go from there.”
Jones broke the franchise single-season receiving record of 1,389 held by current teammate Roddy White since 2010 – and in only 13 games. He is the only Falcons WR in team history to average over 100 yards per game over an entire season.
