This was the first Tell the Truth Monday on a Victory Monday in some time, and Atlanta Falcons head coach Dan Quinn had some encouraging words about the Falcons' locker room after snapping their six-game losing streak against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday.

Quinn noted that the Falcons have not been mathematically eliminated from the playoffs.

Atlanta has several injuries right now, and Quinn provided updates on all of them. The team will have a better idea of Paul Worrilow's status on Wednesday. Worrilow was unable to play in Sunday's game because of a knee injury.

Rookie Vic Beasley has a torn labrum and has been playing through it since OTAs. The team is not required to list Beasley on the injury report because he has not been limited in practice or missed any time.

Rookie defensive tackle Grady Jarrett left Sunday's game with a shoulder injury. Quinn hopes that Jarrett will be physically able to practice in a limited capacity on Wednesday.

Quinn says this last interval has been a challenge, but he's learned a lot from the experience.

Julio Jones facing Panthers cornerback Josh Norman again this week is a key storyline heading into Sunday's game for most people, but not for Dan Quinn.

On Jonathan Asamoah and Leonard Hankerson parting ways with the team, Quinn said it's too bad.

Quinn was pleased with the way cornerback Robert Alford bounced back after an unfortunate performance against Carolina in Week 14.
