NFC South Notes: Buccaneers, Falcons, Panthers




Falcons HC Dan Quinn said WR Julio Jones will be held out of Wednesday’s practice with a hip injury.

“We’ve been through this before with him where we’ll take it through the first couple of days and see what it looks like for Friday,” Quinn said, per Vaughn McClure. “I’m encouraged by where he’s at. But until he runs — move and go — you have an injury that’s there that walking doesn’t bother you as much as cutting and turning and jumping for passes and diving like he does. We’ll have to wait a couple of days until we see where he’s really at.”

  • Jourdan Rodrigue reports that Panthers K Graham Gano, who was placed on injured reserve Wednesday with a left knee injury, will not require surgery at this time and he plans to see how rehab process goes first.
