The Philadelphia Eagles went into Monday night’s Wild Card game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers without WR1 A.J. Brown. Their wideout depth may have taken a knock during the second quarter of tonight’s game when teammate pass catcher Julio Jones appeared to be injured.
Julio Jones’s Injury Update
About five minutes remained in the first half when Jones took a shot from Bucs defensive back Zyon McCollum, which caused him to get rattled up. He had to be helped off the field and went straight to the blue medical tent on Philadelphia’s sideline.
The Eagles stated that Jones was being evaluated for a concussion. He was declared out for the rest of the game at halftime.
