Julio Jones Injury Update: Hamstring Keeps Wide Receiver Out Of Practice

Atlanta Falcons star rookie wide receiver Julio Jones, missed last Sunday's contest versus the Carolina Panthers with a hamstring injury suffered in the fourth quarter versus the defending Super Bowl champion Green Bay Packers. Green Bay would go on to win that game 25-14.

Now the first year pro out of Alabama has missed another day of practice. Per the Falcons' twitter account:

Julio Jones did not practice today. Coach Smith said team doctors will determine later this week if he'll be available to play. #atldet11

For the Falcons, head coach Mike Smith leaned heavily on the run game last week as Michael Turner carried the ball 27 times for 139 yards and two scores. Jones replacement, Harry Douglas, led the team in receiving yards with 57 as Matt Ryan and the Falcons aerial attack was not put to the test versus the Panthers porous run defense.
