Falcons lose Julio Jones, Mohamed Sanu to injury in Week 4

Jones remained in the locker room when the teams came out for the start of the third quarter.

Wide receiver Julio Jones has been limited in practice with a lower back injury but is expected to play. The Falcons were left with Taylor Gabriel as the only other receiver with more than 2 targets on the entire season. Sanu was ruled out for the game with a hamstring injury.

Jones had three catches for 30 yards before the injury. A official review confirmed the turnover, which was Ryan's fifth interception in the last two games. While it would be nice for the Falcons to stay undefeated heading into their bye-week, a win for the Bills would surely send shock waves through the National Football League and AFC East.

Civilians hurt by U.S. airstrike responding to Taliban attack
Also on Friday, an Afghan official said a Taliban attack on a police checkpoint left five police dead in western Farah province. Both pledged continued support for the government so the country "doesn't again become a safe haven for worldwide terrorists".

The Falcons are 3-0 but have not exactly cruised. His dual-threat ability made for a hard game plan for Falcons defensive coordinator Marquand Manuel. They were without their best offensive tackle with starting right tackle Ryan Schraeder sidelined again while recovering from a concussion.

The new addition to the inactives list this week is free safety Ricardo Allen, who suffered a concussion on a crucial fourth quarter play last week. But now it's about finding a way to recover and not allowing the injuries to throw off their focus on returning to the Super Bowl. While he's collecting a lot of money to not work for Buffalo, the Bills probably don't mind after the way the first few games of the Sean McDermott era have gone.

This coming week's bye gives the Falcons a chance to rest and recover. The offense has struggled to get going, as the unsafe duo of quarterback Tyrod Taylor and running back LeSean McCoy have combined for just 82 rushing yards per game. Tight end Austin Hooper led Atlanta's thin receiving corps with five catches for 50 yards. White picked up the ball and raced down the field as the Falcons stood stunned.
