Julio Jones and Smith

Rotoworld: LOL telling it like it is:

Speaking Monday, Falcons coach Mike Smith said he expected Julio Jones (hip) to return for Week 16.
Per Smith, Jones has "improved last week to this week." It's great news, but should be taken with a major grain of salt. Smith is consistently wrong with his public-injury proclamations Jones didn't appear particularly close to suiting up against the Steelers, but he was always going to be up against it on a short week. For now, owners can pencil Jones in for the fantasy finals, but his availability should be considered far from a given. Jones' status will be updated no later than Wednesday.

Without a doubt. Otherwise the injury is way worse than we are being told.

I don't know... the guy is glass

if he wasn't licking his chops to get at a weak Pitt secondary last week, he just might be done for the year

their OC did not sound very optimistic on Tuesday

And we are quite possibly Mike Smith's job.

Believe none of what you hear and only half of what you see.

Re: Julio Jones and Smith

The Falcons’ injury report is a lot more dramatic since receivers Julio Jones, Roddy White and Harry Douglas and safety William Moore all missed Wednesday’s practice. The Saints will definitely prepare for the possibility of Jones playing after he sat out last week with a hip injury, since he’s one of the NFL’s most dangerous playmakers.

“Yeah, he’s definitely gonna play,” Saints cornerback Keenan Lewis said. “Why not? There’s just as much at stake for them as there is for us.”
