Julio Jones Injury Update: Atlanta Falcons Rookie WR Misses Another Practice

Atlanta Falcons rookie wide receiver Julio Jones missed practice on Wednesday due to a hamstring injury that he aggravated on Sunday against the Saints. Per ESPN's Adam Schefter:

No practice today for RB Ahmad Bradshaw, RB Darren McFadden, WR Julio Jones, QB Michael Vick.

If Jones doesn't practice tomorrow, the expectation will be that Jones will not be able to play this week against the Tennessee Titans. Standing in line behind Jones would be Harry Douglas, the wide receiver from Louisville performed admirably last week versus the New Orleans Saints, as his eight catches and 133 receiving yards were critical in keeping Atlanta in the game.

Its clear though, the Falcons invested heavily in Julio and they've got to get him back on the field for the passing game to work on all cylinders.
