The injury status of Atlanta Falcons Julio Jones will have a major impact on the postseason.
It doesn’t look good so far, as it appears unlikely that he will play later today against the Los Angeles Rams, via ESPN’s Adam Schefter. Jones has been dealing with turf toe, and the Falcons will work him out before the game to see if he can play.
The Falcons have found themselves in a dogfight with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for the NFC South championship. They have the same record and can’t afford any losses the rest of the season.
Jones is the best player on a Falcons offense that has been difficult to contain. Without him, that offense cannot sustain that pace.
