An already difficult season for the Atlanta Falcons just took a calamitous turn.
The Falcons are sending Jones for a second opinion Tuesday for what they fear might be a foot fracture, a source informed of the injury told NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport. Fox Sports' Jay Glazer first reported the news.
Jones was surprised by the news, and he didn't believe the injury would be season-ending, Rapoport reported Tuesday.
Jones played in Monday's 30-28 loss to the New York Jets, finishing with eight catches for 99 yards. Darlington -- on the scene in Atlanta on Monday -- reported the All-Pro limped out of an X-ray room after the game.
This very well could be the knockout blow for the Falcons, reeling at 1-4 and now facing the very real possibility that their top weapon has played his final snap of the season. It's a bitter pill to swallow for a team that entered the year in Super Bowl-or-bust mode.
