Falcons HC Dan Quinn revealed Monday that WR Julio Jones is dealing with turf toe. It's unclear when the injury occurred, but it's worth noting that Jones played a season-low 65% of the offensive snaps in the loss to the Chiefs. Of course, he still posted a nice 7-113 line on 9 targets. Quinn added that Jones' issue isn't believed to be serious but "will be monitored." He'll come with a bit more risk than usual in Week 14 but remains a must-start.

Falcons WR Julio Jones is not listed on the team's final injury report. He suffered what he called a "bone bruise" on his knee last week but practiced all this week, including a full workout on Friday. Jones should stay locked in fantasy lineups for Thursday night's plus matchup against Tampa Bay's 28th-ranked WR defense.

Falcons WR Julio Jones told reporters Tuesday that he's dealing with a "knee bruise." It's a relatively minor injury, but one that seemed to impact him in last week's win over the Packers. Jones went catch-less on 1 target in the 2nd half. You're not benching him against the Bucs on Thursday night, but the knee issue makes him a bit riskier than usual.

Falcons WR Julio Jones is "good to go" for Thursday night's game against the Bucs, HC Dan Quinn said. Quinn added that Jones got his knee examined after Sunday's win over the Packers. He certainly didn't look "good to go" in the 2nd half of that one, going catch-less in the 2nd half. An active Jones can't be benched in season-long leagues, but he'll be riskier than usual in Week 9.

The forecast for today's Falcons-Seahawks game calls for a 50% chance of rain with winds of 11-15 mph. That's not quite enough for us to alter our projections, but you could certainly use it as a tiebreaker when considering guys from these 2 passing and kicking games. The weather is a bigger concern for the Falcons, who play their home games in a dome.

Falcons WR Julio Jones (calf) is active for tonight's game against the Saints. He isn't at 100%, but his status for this one was never in doubt. Jones is a high-upside WR1 in the pristine matchup.

Falcons WR Julio Jones (calf) is listed as questionable for Monday night's game against the Saints. He only got in 1 limited practice on Saturday but told reporters afterward that he'll play. Despite the late kickoff, Jones is safe to keep in fantasy lineups.

Falcons WR Julio Jones (calf) missed his 2nd straight practice on Friday. We still haven't heard any concern that he'll miss Monday night's game against the Saints, but he's obviously not at 100%. We'll get another update after Atlanta's final practice of the week tomorrow.

Falcons WR Julio Jones suffered a calf strain in Sunday's win over the Raiders, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. The injury isn't believed to be serious, and Jones should be fine for next Monday night's dream matchup against the Saints. But the issues are already piling up for him just 2 games into the season. Atlanta's bye doesn't come until Week 11.

Falcons WRs Julio Jones (ankle) is active for today’s game against the Raiders. He put in a full practice on Friday and was removed from the final injury report, so that ankle shouldn’t be much of an issue. Mohamed Sanu (ankle) is also active and is in the WR3 discussion.

Falcons WRs Julio Jones (ankle) and Mohamed Sanu (ankle) were both full participants in Friday's practice and removed from the team's final injury report. They're good to go for this weekend's game against a Raiders secondary that just allowed 423 yards and 4 TDs. Jones is a high-end WR1, as usual, and Sanu is in the WR3 mix.

Falcons WR Julio Jones (ankle) was limited again in Thursday's practice. It's not a major concern -- Jones is still fully expected to play this weekend -- but it'd be nice to see him get in a full workout on Friday. WR Mohamed Sanu (ankle) was also limited for the 2nd straight practice on Thursday.

Falcons WR Julio Jones (ankle) was listed as a limited participant in Wednesday's practice. He battled through the ankle issue last week and should be fine for Sunday's game against the Raiders. We'd feel better about paying up for him in DFS if he gets in a full practice on Thursday or Friday.

Falcons WR Julio Jones appeared to tweak the ankle that had him on the Week 1 injury report during Sunday's opener against the Bucs. He didn't miss many snaps, though, and finished with a 4-66-1 line. He said afterward that he's "not worried" about the issue. We'll keep an eye on him this coming week, but Jones should be fine for next Sunday's meeting with the Raiders.

Falcons WR Julio Jones injured his ankle in Thursday night's preseason game against Miami. He limped off the field under his own power and didn't seem to get much trainer attention on the sideline. Jones never returned, but that's not a surprise in an exhibition. This didn't have the look of a serious injury, but we'll keep an eye on Jones' status.

Update: NBC's Michelle Tafoya confirmed at halftime that Jones would have returned if this was a regular season game. His fantasy stock is unaffected.

The Falcons have released WR Roddy White.  The 27th pick of the 2005 NFL draft has spent all 11 seasons of his career in Atlanta, recording 6 seasons of 1,100+ yards.  He's been in clear decline lately, though, and mustered just 43 catches, 506 yards and 1 TD this past season -- all at least 8-year lows.  Now 34, White shouldn't be anything more than a #3 or #4 WR.  And he's a long shot to be a fantasy asset in 2016.  With Justin Hardy and not much else behind Julio Jones on the WR depth chart, Atlanta figures to add to the position in free agency and/or the draft.

5:18pm EDT 10/15/15

Falcons WR Julio Jones (hamstring) is active for tonight's game against New Orleans.  WR Leonard Hankerson (ribs) will also suit up.  Jones belongs in season-long lineups, while Hankerson is a viable WR3 against the Saints' bottom-barrel defense.

Falcons HC Dan Quinn told CBS Sports' Tracy Wolfson that WR Julio Jones (hamstring) will not be on a pitch count against the Saints tonight.  It looks like Jones made good progress over the past few days.  He ended up "probable" on the final injury report.  Lock him into season-long fantasy lineups.

The Falcons list WR Julio Jones (hamstring, toe) as probable for Thursday night's game against the Saints.  That all but confirms he'll be active.  Jones reportedly might be on a pitch count, and there's always risk of an in-game aggravation.  But Jones and the matchup are too good to consider benching him in season-long leagues.'s Tiffany Blackmon reports that Falcons WR Julio Jones (hamstring) will play against the Saints on Thursday night but might be on a snap count.  His playing time will likely depend on how he feels throughout the game.  Note that Jones' reps were being monitored last week, and he ended up playing 73 of 80 snaps.  As long as he's active tomorrow, Jones needs to be in season-long lineups.
