Falcons rule out rookie WR Julio Jones for Week 6

Atlanta Falcons coach Mike Smith said rookie wide receiver Julio Jones will not play Sunday versus Carolina due to his hamstring injury according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.

“We are hoping that after this week we will get him back the following week,” Smith said of Jones’ availability this week. Harry Douglas will take the Alabama alum’s starting role opposite Roddy White.

Jones, the sixth overall pick, has 25 receptions for a team-high 358 yards on the season.
