08:07 AM ET 10.03 | The right hand laceration Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones suffered in Week 3, even though he has been in the lineup, lingers. [The] injury has hindered Jones from having the kind of big-play impact expected from the second-year receiver. As Jones' hand heals, offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter expects him to be more involved in the offense and capitalize on more chances than he did during Atlanta's victory against Carolina on Sunday. "Absolutely," Koetter said [Tuesday]. "He still had eight targets. That's a fair number; it just didn't work out. Eight targets and one catch is not a good percentage. Julio's hand is not 100 percent. Credit him for playing and running his routes hard."

It doesn't hurt so bad when you're 4-0.

But, the guy remains a threat and still draws coverage. Even if he only makes 1 catch, he's still helping the team just by being out there.

Guy with one hand has more of an impact than a guy (Dez you listening) with 2 good hands.

Amazing what happens when you actually know the plays.

I've given up being very worried about Dez Bryant.

He answers questions about what his mama does for a living.

I am sure Atlanta might be thinking that they could have got a lot of wide outs for what they gave up to get Jones.

Might not need that hand the way the Skins DBs play.





Hail to the Redskins!!
