Jones (hamstring) held out of practice again

Atlanta Falcons wideout Julio Jones missed practice for a second consecutive day with his chronic hamstring injury.

Jones missed the second half of the Falcons’ loss to the Green Bay Packers on Monday night and sat out Atlanta’s Week 3 game against the Chicago Bears. Jones has 15 catches for 213 yards and no touchdowns this season.

Wide receiver Calvin Ridley (thigh/knee) was limited for a second consecutive day.

Jones, 31, has been dealing with the hamstring issue since tweaking it during a scrimmage on Aug. 28.

The seven-time Pro Bowl selection and two-time first-team All-Pro has 12,338 yards receiving and 57 touchdowns for his career.

Atlanta linebacker Foye Oluokun (oblique) was upgraded to full participation on Thursday.
