Julio Jones injury: Star receiver limited again in practice on long Falcons report

We’re hoping the Falcons will be fully healthy against Seattle, but

NFL: Atlanta Falcons at Denver Broncos Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

The Atlanta Falcons would love to be at full strength for their tilt against the Seattle Seahawks, and there’s some hope they will be for the first time in weeks. We’ll just have to sweat it out until then, particularly with Julio Jones.

Chances are Julio will suit up even if he’s not at 100%, but it goes without saying that a full-strength #11 against Richard Sherman would be a great battle, and having Julio on the field makes life easier for the offense. Deion Jones missed last week against the Broncos, De’Vondre Campbell and Paul Worrilow have been out for weeks, and Andy Levitre is a new addition to the report this week. While I’d love to get the linebackers back to help contain Jimmy Graham and Christine Michael, Levitre has been a vital cog on the offensive line this year, and I’d hate to see the Atlanta line have to go into battle with Wes Schweitzer or Ben Garland at left guard instead this week.

As always on Thursdays, we’re just left to wait. I’m reasonably optimistic everyone’s going to suit up, though.
