Friday's NFL injury and roster news for Week 14

Julio Jones will miss another game.

The Pro Bowl wideout has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Los Angeles Chargers due to a hamstring injury.

Falcons coach Raheem Morris added the team will determine at another time whether to shut down the star receiver for the balance of the season.

Jones played 94 percent of the snaps against the Saints in Week 13, a season-high, but missed the teams' previous game and hasn't practiced this week due to the hamstring issue. He will miss his fourth game this season due to injury.

Safety Ricardo Allen (concussion) has also been ruled out.
