The Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced Week 5 inactives and Julio Jones is officially INACTIVE for their matchup against the Atlanta Falcons. Jones was listed as questionable this week due to a knee injury. He was able to log a limited practice every day this week but isn't able to play after testing the injury during pregame warmups.
If you were hyped for a possible Jones revenge game against his original team, I’ve got bad news for you. After being hopeful to suit up, Jones was ruled inactive when the final injury report came out before the game.
Jones’ tenure with the Bucs hasn’t gone as planned. It looked like it was going to be a match made in heaven when he had three receptions on five targets for 69 yards in Week 1. Jones suffered the injury in Week 2 and only had one reception for seven yards before getting hurt. He was close to playing this week, so hopefully, we will see him back on the field next week against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
