Falcons practice update: Julio Jones and Vic Beasley limited

New, comments
NFL: Atlanta Falcons at Detroit Lions Raj Mehta-USA TODAY Sports

Thursday is the most important practice day of the week. Typically a player needs to get in a good practice on Thursday to play on Sunday. We have some bad news if you wanted to see Vic Beasley. This rule, like every other rule, does not apply to Julio Jones.

Vaughn McClure of ESPN noted yesterday that it appeared Beasley’s hamstring was still bothering him during practice. With a limited practice, it is very unlikely he plays at all against the Miami Dolphins. Julio does not need to practice to be the best player on the football field, so pencil him in for Sunday.

Justin Hardy (illness, likely after watching his game film from the Buffalo Bills game) returned to practice. I can’t tell if this is good or not. Hardy has gotten very few opportunities, but had a chance to step up with Mohamed Sanu and Jones going out. It could not have gone worse.

No word on Matt Bryant, but the team must be unsure he will be ready to play after adding a kicker to the practice squad. We might see a roster move on Saturday if Bryant is still injured.
