Julio Jones misses second-straight start

Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones was not seen on the field during pre-game warmups and was declared out before the Falcons played the Carolina Panthers Sunday at Mercedes-Benz Stadium.

Jones (hamstring), who did not practice all week, was declared questionable Friday, according to the team’s official injury report.

Safety Jaylinn Hawkins (concussion) was ruled out for the game, but safeties Keanu Neal (hamstring) and Ricardo Allen (elbow) are set to return after missing the previous game, Monday night at Green Bay.

In addition to Jones being out, cornerback Jordan Miller, running back Qadree Ollison, offensive tackle John Wetzel and defensive tackle Deadrin Senat.

The Panthers inactives: quarterback PJ Walker, cornerback Eli Apple, cornerback Stantley Thomas-Oliver, guard Dennis Daley and guard Michael Schofield.

Jones had nine catches for 157 yards in the season opener against Seattle. He was slowed against Dallas and was used as a decoy. He caught two passes for 24 yards and dropped a potential game-winning touchdown pass from wide receiver Russell Gage on a gadget play.

Jones didn’t play against the Chicago Bears and left the game after the first half against Green Bay on Monday. He caught four passes for 32 yards against the Packers, but did not play in the second half.
