Julio Jones Injury: Hamstring Apparently Tweaked Vs. Saints

The Atlanta Falcons offense hasn't managed a whole lot early on against the New Orleans Saints, posting only six points to New Orleans' 10. Julio Jones has been bigger than his nine yards would suggest, as he's drawn plenty of attention and a pass interference penalty.

He headed to the locker room with an unclear situation, though he was jogging off the field and didn't spend any time on the turf before leaving. Early in the third quarter, he was sitting without his helmet, putting his chances of playing in this game in doubt.

He's listed as Questionable for the rest of the game.

He did reappear with the rest of the team after halftime, and was spotted stretching with a trainer and jogging on the sidelines. It's the hamstring that has kept him out of multiple games already this year and which he aggravated in practice this week.
