Falcons give Jones green light after limiting him in practice

Atlanta Falcons rookie wide receiver Julio Jones (hamstring) will play on Sunday against the New Orleans Saints.

The team listed him as probable after limiting him in practice Friday for the second straight day. But the Falcons only did so to manage his injury.

Jones made a spectacular return last week from a two-game absence, catching three passes for 131 yards and two touchdowns in a 31-7 victory over Indianapolis. He also ran twice for 33 yards.
