Julio Jones Injury: Condition Will Be Updated Wednesday

Atlanta Falcons coach Mike Smith had little to say about the team's suddenly lengthy injury list at his Monday conference, saying only that the hamstring condition of wide receiver Julio Jones and other various other team wounds will be updated Wednesday.

One piece of good news: Smith said starting center Todd McClure will return Sunday.

Safety William Moore, defensive end John Abraham, linebacker Sean Weatherspoon, nickel back Christopher Owens and others all suffered some sort of damage that caused them to miss portions of Sunday night's game against the Green Bay Packers. While those are all major setbacks, Jones' injury is of the most immediate concern to the average Falcons fan. 

He's the team's leading receiver and one of the few things that's gone right about the offense. Not to mention taking on the Carolina Panthers or Detroit Lions without him would feel like charging into battle with exactly the same team that lost in the 2010 playoffs, as he was Atlanta's primary offseason pickup.
