Julio Jones out Sunday vs. Steelers

Atlanta, GA (SportsNetwork.com) - Atlanta Falcons star wide receiver Julio Jones will miss Sunday's home game against the Steelers with a hip injury.

 

Jones, the NFL's leading receiver with 1,428 yards, has been unstoppable of late, racking up 448 yards on 21 catches over his last two games. He's also found the end zone in three straight.

Jones burned Green Bay's secondary for a career-high 259 yards last Monday before leaving late in the fourth quarter with a hip pointer injury. He was a limited participant in practice leading up to Sunday.

Wide receivers Roddy White (ankle) and Harry Douglas (foot) will both tough it out and play against Pittsburgh.

 

Safety William Moore, who left Monday's game with a right foot injury in his first game back from injured reserve, will not play. Moore had been out since Week 4 with a shoulder separation.
