Falcons head coach Mike Smith said earlier this week that he expects Julio Jones to play in Week 16. Today, he kind of backtracked from that proclamation. He told the media that he will make a decision as to whether or not his star wideout will play against the Saints at 10:30 a.m. Central on Sunday. FANTASY ANALYSIS: That represents 90 prior to kickoff in New Orleans. That's also when every team must submit its inactives for those early games, so this is Mike Smith's way of saying Julio will be a GTD. You had to feel like this was coming. Despite Smith's early-week optimism, offensive...

Saints Versus Falcons Final Injury Report: Akiem Hicks Still Questionable

Today's injury report is short and sweet but everyone on it is questionable. And yet, Junior Galette who said he wasn't 100 percent is not on it. Sean Payton addressed whether Julio Jones not playing would affect Harry Douglas' reps. Sean said Harry was a great WR in his own right, and while of course it would mean more reps for him, they have to game-plan for him anyway. While Julio Jones is listed as questionable. I wouldn't be surprised to see him try to play Sunday. Too much at stake for both teams in this game. Also both Sean and Rob Ryan addressed a question about Stanley...

Julio sits Friday, will test hip on Saturday

Status for Sunday still up in the air The Falcons are hoping that rest and treatment will help heal wide receiver Julio Jones' hip injury. The star receiver was not on the field during the open portion of practice and was not expected to practice on Friday. Jones has not practiced since he was hurt late in a Dec. 8 loss at the Packers and did not return. After trying to run Saturday, he didn't play against the Steelers. Jones has a big test run on Saturday before the team leaves for New Orleans. (Atlanta Journal Constitution) FF Today's Take: Head coach Mike Smith stated...

Falcons Injury Report: Julio Jones, Roddy White DNP

Several key players, including Julio Jones, were not able to participate in Wednesday's practice. If you were hoping for progress for Julio Jones or William Moore on today's injury report, I hate to be the bearer of bad news. Both Jones and Moore remained sidelined on Wednesday. Jones is dealing with a hip injury suffered late in the Green Bay game, and William Moore is battling an ankle injury that also occurred against Green Bay. Both Jones and Moore were unable to play last Sunday against the Steelers, and their absence was felt. The rest of the injury report is equally troubling. Right...

Falcons expect WR Julio Jones to play in next game

Falcons head coach Mike Smith said Monday that he expects star wide receiver Julio Jones to play Sunday against the Saints. Smith said Jones, who was held out of Week 15 due to a hip injury, has been recovering well and improving since initially suffering the injury during his 259-yard effort in Green Bay the week prior. Jones has 1,428 yards in 13 games this season. FANTASY ANALYSIS: For what it's worth, I guess. We'll know Jones' chances of playing this weekend by how much he practices during the week, not from some Monday coach speak. Of course, Jones' owners are crossing their fingers...

Julio Jones out for Week 15

Hip issue Falcons WR Julio Jones and S William Moore are officially out. (Adam Schefter on Twitter) FF Today's Take: Ed Werder of ESPN also reported that Julio is bothered by a labrum issue in his hip. Roddy White and Harry Douglas will get the start. Both are intriguing options against a weak Steelers secondary.

Julio Jones Out With Injury For Today's Falcons-Steelers Game, Per Report

Julio Jones will reportedly miss Week 15, impacting the Falcons passing game in what promises to be a shootout. Julio Jones will reportedly miss today's game against the Steelers, per the reliable Vaughn McClure: Source with knowledge of the situation tells me Julio Jones (hip) is out. — vaughn mcclure (@vxmcclure23) December 14, 2014 Jones didn't practice this week after suffering a hip injury late in Monday night's game against the Packers, so my sense was that he was going to be a true game time call, if not an early scratch. We don't know who McClure's source is, but I'm willing...

UPDATE: Falcons WR Julio Jones runs at practice Saturday; game-time decision

Updating yesterday's report, Jeff Darlington is reporting that Falcons WR Julio Jones ran at practice Saturday and will test his hip out Sunday during warm-ups. He's a true game-time decision for the Falcons game with Pittsburgh. FANTASY ANALYSIS: The good news is, if you are in a position where an unhealthy Julio is a best-option for you, he plays at 1:00 ET, so you'll have the information you need to make the right lineup moves by noon. However, with a bum hip, he's a risky play this week, even if he does suit up.

Falcons WR Julio Jones unlikely to play Week 15

Falcons beat writer D. Orlando Ledbetter reports that it's unlikely Julio Jones plays in Week 15 and that if he did, he'd just be a decoy. Jones injured his hip late in the Falcons loss to Green Bay in Week 14. Jones was in the midst of an all-time great receiving game, with 11 catches for 259 yards and a touchdown prior to the injury. FANTASY ANALYSIS: It sounds like, even if Jones plays in Week 15, you don't want to use him. This gives teammates Roddy White and Harry Douglas a boost in fantasy value for this week.
