Game status: Jones is ACTIVE for Week 13.

Game day update: The Falcons expect Julio Jones to play Sunday against the Saints, per Ian Rapoport.

Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones is listed as questionable on this week’s injury report. He’s still dealing with the hamstring injury suffered back in Week 11 against the Saints, who the Falcons will face again this week. Jones did say Friday after getting in a limited practice session that he was “healthy and ready to go.

Fantasy impact: Julio Jones (hamstring)

Jones has been dealing with a cascade of injuries all season. He left that Week 11 game early, even after trying to return, and he sat out last week against the Saints. He missed practice on Wednesday this week, but he was out there in a limited role on Wednesday and Friday.

It remains to seen whether or not the injury will clip Jones’ effectiveness this week. If he can’t play, Calvin Ridley would likely see more targets. He led the way with 90 yards the last time these two teams played.
