UPDATE: Sunday, September 23 at 5:05 p.m. ET by Timothy Rapp
Step away from the ledge, folks—all is fine in the world (and the Falcons game). From the Twitter account of NFL Fantasy LIVE:
Julio Jones is back in the game. You can all exhale. #ATLvsSD— NFL Fantasy Football (@NFLfantasy) September 23, 2012
You may now resume your regularly schedule breathing.
---End of Update---
From the official Twitter account of the Falcons:
INJURY UPDATE: SWR Julio Jones taken to the locker room with an undisclosed injury. He left the game after taking hit on 1st play. #atlsd12— Atlanta_Falcons (@Atlanta_Falcons) September 23, 2012
D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution has more information on the injury and the possibility of Jones' return:
#Falcons WR Julio Jones has a hamstring injury. His return is questionable.— D. Orlando Ledbetter (@AJCFalcons) September 23, 2012
His failure to return would obviously hurt the Falcons as they try to go to 3-0 on the season, and there are certainly plenty of fantasy owners who could be staring at a big old goose egg next to Jones' name. Nothing kills a fantasy week like a player hurt in the first quarter.
Be sure to keep it here as things progress on Sunday. As updates become available, we'll send them your way.
