Julio Suffers Calf Injury in Falcons' Week 2 Win

Julio Jones was not able to finish Sunday's game against the Oakland Raiders after suffering an injury to his calf.

The Pro Bowl WR has been on the team's injury report since Week 1- Jones hurt his ankle in the Falcons' third preseason game. Despite the nagging injury, Jones is still producing at a high level.

Through the first two games, Jones has caught nine passes for a total of 172 yards and two touchdowns.

Head coach Dan Quinn said on Monday he's not concerned with the fact that his star receiver continues to get banged up, saying his toughness propels him through everything.

"I'm not concerned at this point," Quinn said. "It was a different injury than he had previously. A guy fell on the back of his calf, not an injury that is recurring.

"The guy is an incredibly fast healer, he's extremely tough so no I'm not concerned at this point."

Quinn said Jones will be a limited participant in practice to start the week, and as the week goes on, he's hopeful he'll move to full participation.
