He was listed as questionable, but did not return to the game. We have another news story saying Julio Jones was battling a 'lower body injury' this week so this is something to monitor as we enter the fantasy playoffs.
Jones was noticeably hobbled on the sideline. After the game he said, "I'm OK. I'm good to go." Jones has played through a multitude of injuries this season, including a shoulder last week, but he has yet to miss a start, the story pointed out. Obviously this is worth monitoring this week leading up to what is likely fantasy playoff time.

The Seahawks obviously will not reveal their plan for Sunday's game, but given how they've used Richard Sherman over the past two years, it seems likely that he'll shadow Falcons WR Julio Jones. DeShawn Shead's strength is going up against bigger receivers such as Mohamed Sanu, so playing the matchups makes sense.
This is a minor downgrade for Jones, but he shouldn't be benched in this situation, given his talent and how well Matt Ryan is playing right now.

Jones has a calf injury for the Falcons and Snead a toe injury for the Saints. Jones was limited Saturday in practice but we had a report earlier Saturday that said he will play. Snead didn't practice Thursday or Friday and was limited Saturday. Michael Thomas would get a bump up if Snead can't go. It's a favorable matchup for both teams in what is shaping up to be a high-scoring game.
Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones, who returned to practice Saturday while recovering from a calf injury, is listed as questionable for Monday night's game against the New Orleans Saints but will play.
"Yes, I'll play Monday night," Jones said. "I wouldn't chance it if I didn't (feel right), if I felt like I was going to overcompensate and something else was going to get tore up or it was going to get worse or anything like that. It's just warming that muscle up, warming up everything, making sure everything is firing properly."
Jones, held out of practice Thursday and Friday, was limited Saturday. However, he appeared to have his explosion running across the red zone and catching passes near the start of practice. In between reps, Jones was spotted bouncing up and down as if to test and make sure his calf was fine, the story said.
