Jones has been a regular on the injury report in recent weeks and dropped from being probable in Week 4 to questionable for Week 5’s game against the Redskins. Jones played, but the quick turnaround to playing on Thursday could make this week more problematic.
Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that the Falcons are “uncertain” about whether Jones’s hamstring will be well enough for him to play when the team takes on the Saints. Jones said after Sunday’s game that he expected to play even though he won’t be 100 percent. It would be a bit of a downgrade for Ryan as the Falcons could use a run-heavy attack with the red-hot Devonte Freeman. Roddy White and Leonard Hankerson would see increased reps at WR.
