Falcons WR Julio Jones (knee) took limited practice reps again Thursday. Jones is not a recommended daily play this week, at least in cash games. He has not fared well against Carolina in recent games (10 catches for 117 yards combined in two games last year) and Panther CB Josh Norman is playing as well as anyone. Since Week 4, Jones is the #11 WR, and given the matchup, he’s not necessarily a must-start in season-long leagues either.

Falcons TE Jacob Tamme (shoulder) took limited practice reps again Thursday. Tamme should be fine to play on Sunday. He had a disappointing Week 13, but is a bounce back candidate this week with the Panthers likely focused on stopping Julio Jones.

Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Kamar Aiken has gone from a journeyman wide receiver to one of the more consistent ones in the league recently.

Since stepping into the Ravens' No. 1 receiver role, Aiken has had at least five receptions and 50 yards in each of his last four games. Only Julio Jones (11 games) and Allen Robinson (seven) have longer active streaks.

"It definitely shows that all the hard work pays off," quarterback Matt Schaub said. "All these years, he has just kept coming to practice, kept coming to work and just continuing to strive to do the best that he can and be perfect on his routes and understand what the quarterback is thinking, coverages and his subtle route adjustment. Kamar does run crisp routes, and he doesn’t confuse the quarterback with his breaks, and he has shown the ability to have strong hands and go attack the football and not wait on the football. You’ve got to love that as quarterback.”

Tamme has averaged 6.0-67-0.25 on 8.5 T/G in the four games that Hankerson has missed. He’s averaging just 3.3-41 on 4.7 T/G in the six games in which Hankerson has played.
