FLOWERY BRANCH, GA. (AP) - The Atlanta Falcons say star wide receiver Julio Jones will miss the remainder of the season with a foot injury.

Jones injured his right foot in Monday night’s loss to the New York Jets.

The severity of Jones‘ injury was confirmed on Wednesday when he was examined in Charlotte, N.C., by foot specialist Dr. Robert Anderson.

Anderson repaired Jones‘ broken right foot before his 2011 rookie season.

The loss of Jones, the NFL’s leading receiver, is a devastating blow to the Falcons, who are 1-4 and entering their bye week.

Receiver Roddy White hurt his hamstring in the loss and missed Wednesday’s practice.
