Falcons WR Julio Jones finished Monday night's game with 11 catches, 259 yards and a touchdown before leaving with a hip injury late in the fourth quarter.
Jones took an awkward shot on a catch in the red zone and never returned. Jones tried to get the injury loose on the sideline, but the Falcons shut him down for the night even though they were driving for their final touchdown of a 43-37 loss.
Falcons coach Mike Smith said after the game that the initial diagnosis on Jones' injury was unclear. But he didn't sound too concerned, which is some good news to take from this until we can learn a little more. Jones has been on fire lately so this will be an anxious time for owners heading into the Week 15 playoffs. Jones has a home game vs. Pittsburgh. It's an early afternoon contest so if it comes down to a game-time call there will at least be time for adjustments. Harry Douglas only had two catches on MNF but did have a TD. He would make for a solid handcuff option.
