Julio Jones Injury Update: Falcons WR Expected To Start

The Atlanta Falcons will have wide receiver Julio Jones for their game against the Indianapolis Colts. Jones was limited in practice for most of the week, but went full on Friday. He's officially listed on the injury report as probable with a hamstring injury but is expected to start.

Getting Jones back in the line up opens up the Falcons passing game by drawing coverage away from Roddy White and Tony Gonzalez. If Jones is on your roster he should be a sure start against a struggling Colts defense who can't seem who they want to start at cornerback. The Falcons should handle the Colts defense rather easily and it's a great game for Jones to pick up some easy receptions to get back into game shape.
