                     === Falcons WR Jones out for year ===
 
 Flowery  Branch,  GA  (SportsNetwork.com)  -  The  Atlanta  Falcons  announced
 Wednesday that wide receiver Julio Jones will miss the rest of the season.
 
 The  24-year-old  Jones hurt his foot  during Monday night's 30-28 loss to the
 New  York  Jets. He got  a second opinion on  the injury after initial reports
 were not encouraging.
 
 Jones  will have  surgery after  Dr. Robert  Anderson confirmed  his fractured
 foot.
 
 "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."
 
 Jones  caught 41 passes for 580 yards and two touchdowns in five games for the
 1-4 Falcons this season.
 
 The Falcons picked Jones with the sixth overall pick in the 2011 draft.
