I will be shocked if he plays

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I could be way off, but usually, if you don't know by now the dude isn't playing. I'd be surprised, and if he does suit up nothing more than a decoy Julio Jones’ availability hinges on pre-game workout, again | ...

Two weeks without a single practice?

I doubt seriously that he plays, and if he does it blows away all that mumbo jumbo about practice being so important.

It is the lack of practice in 2 weeks and the fact that Smith said at the beginning of the week he expected him to play. If you're trying to dup the other team because he is going to play you don't usually say it. You act cautious and then all of a sudden they practice on the last day, etc

He might play as a decoy... kind of like Calvin Johnson did earlier this year.

Even when healthy and hauling in over 150 yds they still lose. Who cares. He's a great WR but you can only go to the well so often. They have no run game, no real threat as a 3rd or 4th receiving option and their second option is old and also banged up. Without a healthy Julio I'm not even sure they can compete in the NFL.

"just another guy" aproach . That injury limits his movement. Keenan will get the job done.

So many teams we lost to this season didn't have their best player. I sure hope you are right.

So true. I thought there was no way the Browns would beat us without Josh Gordon and no way the Lions would beat us without Megatron. Nothing is gonna come easy this season.
