Atlanta Falcons' star man Julio Jones may be listed as questionable for his team's clash this weekend against the Houston Texans, as he did not practice yesterday due to injury.
According to Pro Football Talk, the wide receiver did not take part in practice yesterday due to an ongoing hamstring injury, which has been listed for the past two weeks, and a toe injury, which he picked up in the past week.
Nevertheless, the hamstring injury certainly hasn't shown itself, as Jones has racked up 34 receptions for 440 yards and four touchdowns. A start which puts him on the track to break several records this season, if he keeps this form up.

He leads the NFL in catches, receiving yards, first downs (23), and is joint-second in touchdowns. All of this has helped his side reach a 3-0 record at the start of the season for the first time since 2012.
Jones joins an ongoing injury list for the Falcons, as running back Tevin Coleman is still out due to a rib injury, and tight end Jacob Tamme is sidelined thanks to a concussion he picked up during the 39-28 win in week three against the Dallas Cowboys.
After this strong start to the season and their favorable schedule, the Falcons look like one of the favorites to claim the first playoff spot in the NFC this season.
But if Jones has to spend any time on the sidelines, all of this could be put into question, as they would be missing a key and reliable part of their passing game.
