ATLANTA -- Atlanta Braves left fielder Chipper Jones left Tuesday night's game against the Montreal Expos in the fourth inning after he appeared to aggravate an injury to his right hamstring while trying to beat out an infield grounder.

Jones favored his right leg as he pulled up while running to first. He limped to the dugout and slammed his helmet to the ground. Dewayne Wise replaced Jones in left.

The Braves reported that Jones had tightness in the muscle and was day to day.

Jones missed 16 games from April 19 to May 8 with a strained right hamstring. More recently, he missed one game after he was hit by a pitch on his lower left leg Friday.
