Julio Jones will go down in sports lore for blazing a 4.39 40-yard dash at the 2011 NFL Combine with a broken foot.
Jones went on to have surgery for that, was drafted by the Falcons and has become a star. On Monday night that foot and the screw placed inside failed him.
Jones as reported on Tuesday afternoon will be out for the remainder of the regular season.
NFL reporter Jason Cole reports that Jones, who was on a blistering pace with 41 catches and over 500 yards, broke the screw that was put in his foot in that 2011 surgery.
Word from a Falcons source is that WR Julio Jones broke the screw that was put in his foot in 2011 surgery.
