Online sports betting fans will probably not be happy with the news about Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones being ruled out for the remainder of the NFL season with a right foot injury.
A recent CT scan showed that the Alabama native, who had a fracture in his foot after the 2011 NFL scouting combine, suffered a fracture in the same location.
Just yesterday Jones went to Charlotte, N.C., to get a second opinion from noted foot specialist Dr. Robert Anderson. The 24 year-old was injured during Monday night’s 30-28 defeat versus the New York Jets, however he remained in the game even with the injury.
Atlanta’s coach Mike Smith stated initial reports on Jones’ status were not positive after the receiver was examined by team physicians earlier this week.
A fracture was discovered in the same foot during the 2011 NFL combine following his final year with the Crimson Tide . The Falcons traded five draft picks to select Jones sixth overall.
The team moved quickly to bolster its wide receiver corps, signing veteran Brian Robiskie, the son of Falcons wide receiver coach Terry Robiskie, to a one-year deal, multiple league according to what YouWager experts learned.
Jones currently leads Atlanta (1-4) with 41 catches for 580 yards and two touchdowns.
