Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Julio Jones went to the medical tent on Monday night’s Wild Card game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The veteran wide receiver was expected to have an expanded role since the Eagles are without starting wide receiver A.J. Brown, who is dealing with his own injury. Jones went up for a reception and got blasted by a defender and needed to be tended to by trainers before leaving the field.

Jones has been with the Eagles for most of the season but hasn’t been able to carve out a large role for himself in the offense. He played in 11 games in the regular season and brought in 11 of his 19 targets for 74 yards with three touchdowns. Before the injury, Jones had brought in all three of his targets for 22 yards.
