Falcons' Deion Jones: Heads to IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Falcons placed Jones (foot) on injured reserve Tuesday.

Just one week into the season, the Falcons will already be without the services of two of their top defensive playmakers for extended time, with Jones set to join safety Keanu Neal (knee) on IR. The Falcons were initially hopeful that Jones was just dealing with a sore foot after he racked up a team-high nine tackles in the season-opening loss to the Eagles, but follow-up testing revealed that the linebacker required a procedure to address the injury. Head coach Dan Quinn said the Falcons expect Jones to play again in 2018, so expect the team to use one of its two designated-to-return spots on the 23-year-old. Jones will still be sidelined for a minimum of eight weeks as a result of the IR placement.

Falcons' Deion Jones: Held out Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones was held out of Monday's practice due to a foot injury, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Jones is one of the Falcons' best defenders, and his health will be a looming question for the team heading into a divisional matchup with the Panthers in Week 2. He should be considered questionable for the time being, with the specifics of his injury yet unclear.

Falcons' Deion Jones: Won't play Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (undisclosed) will sit out of Saturday's preseason game against the Jaguars, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Jones doesn't need to prove anything to secure a roster spot, as he made 246 tackles, 21 pass breakups and six interceptions -- he ran two back for touchdowns -- through his first two seasons in the league. Therefore, the Falcons will be cautious with Jones' workload until they kick off Week 1 against the Eagles.

Falcons' Deion Jones: Considered day-to-day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (undisclosed) is being listed as day-to-day by the team, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Jones' injury status is certainly a good sign for the Falcons', who will only have to plan to be without the starting middle linebacker in the short term. Emmanuel Smith may fill in for him in the interim.

Falcons' Deion Jones: Held out of Friday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head coach Dan Quinn announced Saturday that Jones is considered day-to-day with an undisclosed injury, Kelsey Conway of the Falcons' official site reports.

Jones was a surprise scratch from Atlanta's second preseason game against Kansas City on Friday, as there was no indication coming in that the Pro Bowl linebacker was dealing with an injury. A sudden and mysterious injury designation for the team's best defensive player has fans waiting with bated breath, though the exact ailment and expected recovery time have not yet been disclosed by the Falcons.
