The Atlanta Falcons have listed wide receiver Julio Jones as
questionable for today’s game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as he continues
to deal with a lingering ankle sprain. The amount of playing time he receives
and the role he plays in the contest may depend on the pace of the matchup,
reports Jeff Darlington of NFL Network.
NFL Network's Jeff Darlington reported Saturday the pace of
the matchup might dictate how Jones is used on offense.
Jones was able to return to practice on a limited basis on Thursday, and it appears he’ll be available to play in some capacity today
against Tampa Bay. NFL.com’s Marc Sessler believes that the wide receiver could
play a “major role” if the game develops into a shootout.
Jones entered last weekend’s game against the Arizona
Cardinals listed as questionable due to his ankle injury. He aggravated the sprain after catching three passes for 33 yards and exited the game.
