What you need to know about Week 15's injury report

Julio Jones will be a game-time decision this week when the Atlanta Falcons face the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The wide receiver (hip) missed his third practice of the week Friday and is officially listed as questionable.

Jones suffered the hip injury in the fourth quarter of his massive 259-yard performance Monday night in Green Bay.

The Falcons (5-8) lead the woeful NFC South, and, if Jones can't go, it would be a huge dent to their chances against the high-powered Steelers offense.

Jones leads the NFL with 1,428 receiving yards, and in his last three games he has compiled 26 receptions for 172.0 yards per game, six receptions of 25-plus yards and three touchdowns. If he is able to play, the wideout has a great matchup against a Pittsburgh secondary that has been torched.

The Falcons also announced that safety William Moore is questionable, while corner Robert Alford remains out.
