The Falcons are getting healthier as the season winds to a close.

While the Carolina Panthers are spiraling after the firing of their longtime head coach Ron Rivera, the Falcons are getting good news going into their matchup on Sunday in Atlanta.

Atlanta will have Julio Jones, Austin Hooper and Chris Lindstrom all back for the game against the division rivals.

This is welcome news for fans who still want to see their team play well, even if the season is effectively over.

For Lindstrom, it will be his first game action since he was injured during the first game of the season. Coach Quinn did say that he will not play all snaps, but it will be good to see him out there regardless.

For Julio, he left the game against the Saints with an injury and the longer break has apparently helped him get back to good enough health to play at home on Sunday.

Austin Hooper hasn’t played since the first matchup with the Saints when he sprained his MCL. Knee ligament injuries can be scary, so it’s good to see him back in a relatively short period of time.

Your thoughts on the return of these three offensive players?
