Hey, Falcons fans! Think things couldn't get worse for your team after falling to 1-4 and losing two straight nationally televised games? Think again!
#Falcons WR Julio Jones to be out for season with a foot injury, according to team. Coach Smith will address at 2:30 pm

That's right, Julio Jones, the second-leading receiver in the NFL (after New Orleans' Jimmy Graham), the guy who makes unbelievable circus-catch plays that keep Atlanta in games their defense plays them out of, is apparently out for the year with a foot injury. Jones was observed limping after Monday night's loss to the Jets, and it's clear that the injury was more serious than anyone had believed at the time.
Fox Sports' Jay Glazer is reporting that Jones will seek a second opinion on Wednesday. That's the only faint hope that Atlanta has, but the way things have gone lately, the doctor will recommend amputation.
