Falcons WR Julio Jones (hamstring, questionable) missed practice Friday after taking limited reps Thursday and is questionable for Week 12. The missed practice is a concern, but they may have been giving Jones a day off. The Falcons play early on Sunday. If Jones misses the game, common sense would lead owners to Olamide Zaccheaus since he has had a couple of big games this season, but it was actually Christian Blake who played more routes (27) than Zaccheaus (7) when Jones missed a good portion of Week 11. Blake only posted 2-28 (4 targets) so perhaps Atlanta uses Zaccheaus more if Jones misses Week 12.
If Jones can't go, Ridley would be the team's WR1 with Gage likely remaining as the slot guy and WR3. That means Zaccheaus could slide in Jones' spot and be a potential sneaky start. The Falcons host the Raiders in an early afternoon game on Sunday so Jones owners will know in advance and have time to adjust lineups.
Morris said the team should have a better feel for Ridley's status on Wednesday. The team hopes to have him in individual drills and team work as well. With Ridley out against the Broncos, backup receivers Zaccheaus, Powell and Blake all caught passes. Zaccheaus caught a 51-yard touchdown pass and Powell had his first career touchdown catch, the story said.
