The season could be over for Atlanta Falcons star Julio Jones

If the 1-4 Falcons thought their season could not be worse, they were wrong.  Tuesday they learned that Pro Bowl receiver Julio Jones could be done for the season due to a foot injury.

Jones was reportedly surprised by the news because he was not in a great deal of pain.  Falcons head coach Mike Smith said Jones will get a second opinion Wednesday from a football specialist.

Jones was off to a huge start for Atlanta with 41 receptions and 580 yards in only five games.   That put him on pace for approximately 130 receptions and about 1900 yards.
