Falcons WR Jones set to return Sunday against Vikings

Atlanta Falcons rookie wide receiver Julio Jones, who missed last week's victory over the Tennessee Titans with a hamstring injury, was listed as probable on the team's injury report on Friday and is expected to play Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings.

Jones, who has sat out three games this season with the injury, practiced fully on Friday. He had returned to practice on a limited basis Thursday and looked good, according to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

"It felt good to get back out there, running routes," Jones told the newspaper. "I thought I was going to be rusty, but I wasn't. So, it just felt good to be back out there with my teammates."

Jones originally suffered the injury Oct. 9 against the Green Bay Packers and missed the following two games. He then returned Nov. 6 against the Indianapolis Colts, racking up two touchdowns and 131 yards, but aggravated his hamstring the next week against the New Orleans Saints and sat out against Tennessee.

Jones has 30 catches for 498 yards with four touchdowns this season.
