Falcons’ Julio Jones sent home with flu-like symptoms
FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) — Falcons receiver Julio Jones has been sent home with flu-like symptoms but is expected to play Sunday against Arizona.
Coach Dan Quinn says the wide receiver likely will return to practice on Friday. Jones, a two-time All-Pro, leads the NFL in yards receiving and is the only player in league history with five straight 1,400-yard seasons.
Quinn said Thursday that starting nose tackle Grady Jarrett is expected to play against the Cardinals (3-10) despite groin and shoulder injuries. Reserve tackle Terrell McClain will not play because of a sore hip.
