Terren Jones carted off field at Atlanta Falcons practice

The Atlanta Falcons have begun their full swing of practices in preparation for the upcoming NFL season, but unfortunately, Sunday’s edition turned from focusing on the field to the health of one of the team’s offensive lineman. Second-year offensive tackle Terren Jones was carted off the field on Sunday as a result of an apparent serious injury, and he left practice in an ambulance.

At this point, details are extremely limited, but head coach Mike Smith referenced Jones in a brief comment after practice.

The 22-year-old Jones was set to compete for a backup job at offensive tackle after being signed as an undrafted free agent last season, but those details seem inconsequential with this type of injury. Prayers are certainly with Jones and his family at this time, and we will update the situation as more details emerge.
