Falcons WR had a hand injury that limited his ability
Falcons’ offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter said that the hand injury Julio Jones suffered in Week 3 against the Chargers affected the wide receiver for the teams Week 4 matchup against the Panthers. “He still had eight targets. That’s a fair number; it just didn’t work out. Eight targets and one catch is not a good percentage. Julio’s hand is not 100 percent. Credit him for playing and running his routes hard.” (Atlanta Journal-Constitution)
