FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) - The Atlanta Falcons could lose Julio Jones for the season after the Pro Bowl receiver injured his foot Monday in a 30-28 loss to the New York Jets.


Coach Mike Smith says Jones, the NFL leader with 41 catches, did not get encouraging results from a visit with doctors Tuesday morning.


Smith added that Jones will see a foot specialist Wednesday in Charlotte, N.C., for a second opinion. Jones ranks second with 580 yards receiving.


The Falcons (1-4) lost four-time Pro Bowl receiver Roddy White to a hamstring injury during the game. A high ankle sprain has nagged White, who has only 14 catches for 129 yards receiving.


Running back Steven Jackson has missed the last three games, all losses, with a hamstring injury.
