The Atlanta Falcons were dealt a huge blow this week. Star receiver Julio Jones was officially ruled out for the rest of the season.
The injury bug has not only bitten the Falcons, but it has nearly devoured their chance to make the playoffs this season. Roddy White and Steven Jackson have both been dealing with their own injuries. It leaves the 100-year old Tony Gonzalez to carry this team offensively.
Matt Ryan has been fortunate to have a consistent running attack with Michael Turner, but he’s no longer on the team. Can he be effective without help in the backfield?
