Falcons RB Devonta Freeman, WR Julio Jones miss practice

Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones and running back Devonta Freeman both were held out of practice Tuesday as the team prepared for Saturday's NFC Wild Card matchup with the Los Angeles Rams.

Jones, who had been dealing with ankle and thumb injuries, now is listed with ankle and rib injuries. He took a hard hit over the middle from safety Mike Adams in last week's win over Carolina but returned to the game.

Julio Jones still has sore ribs from the hit he took Sunday that left him on the turf. Meanwhile, Freeman showed up on the injury report with a knee injury. Freeman said he was banged up after last week's game but played through the pain.
