Falcons WR Nick Williams (concussion) missed practice again Thursday.

Falcons WR Julio Jones (toe) did not practice Wednesday. Jones was purportedly a game-time decision last week, so we expect he’ll play in some fashion in Week 15. On the flip side, it’s a very winnable home game against the 49ers, so the team may elect to rest him another week.

Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (groin) took limited practice reps Wednesday. Sanu may be able to return this week. It would put a dent in Taylor Gabriel’s playing time if both Sanu and Julio Jones play on Sunday.

Falcons expect WR Mohamed Sanu to practice Wednesday

The status of wide receiver Mohamed Sanu may also play a role in their ultimate choice regarding WR Julio Jones. Sanu missed last Sunday with a groin injury, but HC Dan Quinn said he expects the wideout to practice on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact:

Julio Jones isn't expect to practice Wednesday, and because the Falcons play the 49ers, there may be no need for the team to rush Jones back from a toe injury. That could especially be true if Sanu is able to return this week.

Falcons WR Julio Jones (toe) won't practice Wednesday

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

The Falcons went down to the wire before making a decision on wide receiver Julio Jones‘ status for last Sunday’s game against the Rams and it looks like things could be headed down that path again this week.

Falcons coach Dan Quinn said on Sirius XM NFL Radio that Jones will not practice with the rest of the team on Wednesday due to the toe injury that kept him out in Week 14. Quinn said that the team will see how he feels later in the week before determining his status.

Fantasy Impact:

Jones didn’t practice at all last week and was inactive. The story suggested because the Falcons play the 49ers this week, there may be no need to rush back Jones for this game. Fantasy owners will need to monitor this all week.

The Jeff Fisher Era is over for the Los Angeles Rams.

The day after an embarrassing 42-14 home loss to the Atlanta Falcons – after which star running back Todd Gurley criticized the offense – the Rams fired Fisher.

Fisher was 31-45-1 in nearly five seasons with the Rams.

Fantasy Impact:

The Rams are 4-9 this season and play Thursday night against the Seattle Seahawks. Special teams coordinator John Fassel will take over as interim head coach.

Falcons WR Julio Jones (toe, questionable) missed practice all week and is questionable for Week 14. Jones has turf toe, which is a tough injury for a receiver to play through. Adam Schefter reports that the team is “optimistic” that he’ll be able to play, but HC Dan Quinn said that he’ll be a game-time decision. Beat writer D. Orlando Ledbetter is not anticipating that Jones will play, so opinions are all over the place. If he can’t go, the Falcons might be down to Taylor Gabriel and Justin Hardy at receiver since Mohamed Sanu is out. Unfortunately, the Falcons play late on Sunday, so we’re hoping for a Saturday/Sunday tweet from Adam Schefter or Ian Rappoport to clear things up.
