Last week, the Falcons waited until Sunday morning to decide whether receiver Julio Jones would play despite a hip injury. This week, it’ll be the same routine.
Per a source with knowledge of the situation, Jones’ availability for Sunday’s showdown with the Saints will hinge on the Sunday morning pre-game workout.
Jones wants to play and the Falcons sure need him. In his last two games played, Jones generated 448 receiving yards, with a whopping 259 yards coming in a Monday night loss to the Packers. Between the performances with Jones and the team’s struggles without him, the fourth-year wideout from Alabama is laying the foundation for a major payday at some point during the 2015 offseason, the story said. If Jones can't go, Harry Douglas would shape up to be a very good option again.
