Good news Falcons fans: the young (and dynamic) duo of Deion Jones and De’Vondre Campbell will both be playing on Sunday for the first time since game 1 against the Tampa Bay Bucs.

Unfortunately, our linebacker depth is still somewhat sketchy, as Paul Worrilow is still recovering from his groin surgery. The veteran inside linebacker will not be active on Sunday.

It also appears that Julio Jones (knee) and Andy Levitre (knee) will be good to go on Sunday, after missing some practice time during the week. Additionally, Brooks Reed and Mohamed Sanu had missed a little time earlier in the week, but were full participants on Thursday.

This Sunday’s match-up against the Seahawks will be a very difficult one, so getting both Jones and Campbell back will be a huge boost to the defense. Safety Kemal Ishmael filled in nicely against the Broncos and could still some some action as Campbell is worked back into the lineup, after recovering from a high-ankle sprain.

Your thoughts on the Falcons getting their rookie linebackers back?
