Ed Werder reported that Atlanta Falcons HC Dan Quinn seems encouraged about Julio Jones hamstring, but the short prep week means he’s no sure thing for Thursday night. (Ed Werder on Twitter)
Nerdy Football Analysis: Quinn told Werder it’s “Gonna be close. Not sure he can go,” which clouds the fantasy picture for the Falcons and even Matt Ryan in what should have been a prime matchup facing the hapless New Orleans Saints. Leonard Hankerson (ribs) is also hurting. This may be a good time for the Falcons to lean even more heavily on newfound scoring maven Devonta Freeman and rookie Tevin Coleman, who saw some snaps in Week 5 after sitting out a couple games with a rib injury.
