Julio Jones won't play against Panthers

Share This Story



Atlanta Falcons rookie receiver Julio Jones will miss Sunday's game against Carolina because of a hamstring injury.

Jones pulled up in the fourth quarter of a 25-14 loss to Green Bay on a deep route down the sideline. He's already doing some light running with the training staff, but coach Mike Smith says there's no chance of playing against the Panthers.

Six other players also missed practice Wednesday, including defensive end John Abraham (groin) and center Todd McClure (knee). Both are hobbled by injuries that kept them out of the last game. Cornerback Christopher Owens (concussion), safety William Moore (shoulder), offensive guard Garrett Reynolds (ankle) and tight end Tony Gonzalez (elbow) were hurt against the Packers.
