Julio Jones Injury: Atlanta Receiver Leaves Game With Hamstring

The Atlanta Falcons suffered what could be a big loss during a challenging second half as wide receiver Julio Jones was escorted to the locker room with what's being called a left hamstring injury. As Jones has been the team's leading receiver this year, this could be a huge setback for Atlanta.

Jones got tangled up while trying to run down a bomb early in the fourth quarter as the Falcons trailed, 22-14.

Jones has been targeted frequently, but hasn't been able to come up with very many. He had one nice catch on a quick route for a first down and took an end-around for 16 yards in the first quarter. It'll be on Roddy White and Tony Gonzalez to step up.
