It is the first game Jones has missed since a sprained big toe kept him out for two games in the 2016 season.
The injury kept Jones out of practice this week and he tested the shoulder in pregame drills.
Jones, a two-time, first-team All-Pro, leads the Falcons with 64 catches for 950 yards. He has four touchdown catches, but none since Week 3.
