Report: Julio Jones won't play against Steelers

The Falcons are in some trouble against Pittsburgh as it looks like they'll be without their top offensive playmaker.

According to a report from ESPN.com, receiver Julio Jones will not play today. Jones injured his hip during last week's loss to Green Bay, in which he had 259 yards and almost single-handedly brought his team back for a win.

Not having Jones would put Roddy White into the No. 1 receiver role, something he's long been familiar with. But it will make things tougher on an offense that will need to match Pittsburgh's scoring output, based on how poorly the defense has been all season.
