The Atlanta Falcons announced Tuesday that former LSU linebacker Deion Jones has been placed on injured reserve after suffering a foot injury in the season opener last week.

“Following the game last Thursday, Deion reported soreness in his foot, so we sent him for further tests,” said head coach Dan Quinn. “We got the results of those tests back today, and he unfortunately will require a procedure that will result in us having to place him on injured reserve. We are bummed for Deion, but we do expect to get him back at some point this season. He represents all that we are looking for in a Falcon player, and while he will not be on the field for us right now, he will continue to have a presence in our building.”

Jones suffered a foot injury in the Falcons’ 18-12 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 1. The move comes one day after Atlanta placed Pro Bowl safety Keanu Neal on IR with a knee injury.

That sucks, he is such a great talent. I'm sure Drew Brees is unhappy about this, too.
