London practiced Monday, but beyond that and for Sunday's game the team doesn't expect to know much else until later. Pitts could be in line for a ton of targets if London is out and the WR work falls to Hodge, Edwards and Zaccheaus.
As a corresponding move, the Falcons have activated Treadwell off the COVID list and signed him to their 53-man roster, the story said. Treadwell previously was on Atlanta’s practice squad after signing with the club as a free agent during the offseason.

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.
