Julio Jones was on-pace for another dominant effort against Patrick Peterson with 81 yards and one bonkers touchdown.

Yes, this touchdown.

It was a great touchdown but apparently gave Jones some rib issues.

Jones is currently on the sideline with his helmet suggesting he should be able to return. The sideline reporter said Quinn wanted to give Jones a little time before returning. They additionally mentioned that Jones had been limping on the sideline throughout the game so he may be dealing with multiple injuries.

Jones must not have been dealing with anything major because he only sat out a few snaps.

With a pretty sizable lead, don’t expect the Falcons to send a ton of targets towards the wide receiver.
