ATLANTA, Oct. 9 (UPI) -- Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones has a broken foot and will miss the rest of the season, the team announced Wednesday.
"Unfortunately, Julio's appointment with the doctor today confirmed our initial findings," Atlanta Coach Mike Smith said. "He is scheduled to have a season-ending procedure on Monday."
The injury to their top receiver came as a further blow to the struggling Falcons, who are off to a 1-4 start.
The 24-year-old has hauled down 41 passes for 580 yards and two touchdowns over five games this season.
