Found October 06, 2012 on NFL Injury Report:

Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones has been hamperedby a hand injury over the past few weeks, but he is listed as probable for Sunday’s matchup against the Washington Redskins.

While he was targeted eight times during last weekend’s game against the Carolina Panthers, Jones only caught one pass. The 23-year-old was dealing with the effects of a lacerated hand that he sustained during Atlanta’s Week 3 contest against the San Diego Chargers.
Though he’s only in his second season, Jones entered the year with extremely high expectations. After an impressive Week 1, in which he caught six passes for 108 yards and two scores, the wide out’s come back down to earth. On the season he’s caught 16 passes for 219 yards and three touchdowns.
