Atlanta Falcons receiver Julio Jones was held out of practice on Wednesday as the team gears up to play the Arizona Cardinals.
Julio Jones was held out of the Atlanta Falcons' practice on Wednesday because of an ankle injury suffered in the team's game against the New Orleans Saints last week. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported that the injury was first called a leg problem during the game.
Jones is part of the two-headed receiving duo that also includes Roddy White, Atlanta's leading receiver. Jones has 44 catches for 703 yards and five touchdowns this season.
Also sitting completely out of the Falcons' practice was linebacker Sean Weatherspoon, who is dealing with an ankle injury. Receiver Kevin Cone was sidelined with a groin problem and safety Charles Mitchell was held out with a calf injury.
Players limited in practice on Wednesday included running back Michael Turner (groin), defensive tackle Jonathan Babineaux (thigh), defensive end John Abraham (back), tight end Tony Gonzalez (shoulder), receiver Harry Douglas (ankle), linebacker Stephen Nicholas (groin) and defensive tackle Vance Walker (ribs).
