The Atlanta Falcons will have to face the Pittsburgh Steelers without injured wide receiver Julio Jones.
Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones had a career game on Monday night against the Green Bay Packers with 11 receptions for 259 yards and a touchdown.
However, he left the game with a hip injury and was considered questionable for the entire week. Head coach Mike Smith and reports seemed to indicate that Jones would be okay.
The Falcons will have to deal without Jones though, so wide receivers Roddy White and Harry Douglas are expected to pick up the slack.
Here is a tweet from the official Atlanta Falcons Twitter account reporting on Jones’ game status.
It’s official. Julio Jones and William Moore are inactive today. #PITvsATL
