Jones has been ruled out of Sunday's contest against the Bills due to a hip injury, Field Yates of ESPN reports. Teammate Mohamed Sanu also didn't come back in the second half after suffering an injury to his hamstring. Both are worth monitoring closely, however, as long as Jones is out of action, and Gabriel becomes a waiver priority if Jones and Sanu miss any game action.
Julio Jones jogged off the field during the second quarter with a trainer at his side.
Bills are down to 2 time outs after losing a challenge on an Atlanta completion that was good for 39 yards. They'll face another tough opponent when they face the Buffalo Bills on Sunday (10 a.m. PT/1 p.m. ET, CBS, DirecTV).
No, Ryan didn't have his best game.
The Falcons' injury list to starters was significant before the day began.
The new addition to the inactives list this week is free safety Ricardo Allen, who suffered a concussion on a crucial fourth quarter play last week.
Add the injuries of Jones, Sanu, and defensive lineman Jack Crawford (biceps) and the Falcons could put together an all-injury all-star team. That formula nearly helped the Falcons win the game Sunday as the backs combined for 222 yards rushing and receiving. Instead, the team is likely to rely heavily on running backs Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman to generate offense, while Ryan's targets will be dispersed among a handful of wideouts and tight ends. Have thoughts on how the Bills and Falcons are performing?
