Falcons WR Julio Jones (calf) says he'll play Week 3

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."

Fantasy Impact: 

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.
