Jones (calf) said he will play Monday against Saints, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

EDGE Analysis

Jones missed practice earlier in the week, and while he put in only a limited effort Saturday, it was apparently enough to give him confidence to play Monday. His presence would certainly be a huge boost against a Saints defense that is one of the worst in the league.

Jones (calf) is listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Saints, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jones was able to practice in a limited capacity Saturday with hopes of being ready for Monday's tilt in New Orleans. The minor calf issue kept him out of practice earlier in the week, but he has a good chance of taking the field Week 3 as he looks to grab a touchdown reception for the third consecutive game.

Although Jones (calf) will not practice Friday, head coach Dan Quinn still expects the wideout to play in Monday's game against New Orleans, D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

EDGE Analysis

Despite starting the practice week with consecutive absences, Jones is seemingly on track for Monday's dream matchup against the leaky New Orleans secondary. Owners would still like to see him participate in Saturday's practice, if only in a limited capacity.

Jones (calf) was a non-participant at Thursday's practice, D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

EDGE Analysis

Although he was able to complete the walkthrough prior to Thursday's session, Jones was otherwise held out of drills due to the strained calf stemming from Sunday's win at Oakland. The decision to ease the burden on Jones this week is warranted, as he's tended to ailments in advance of both of the Falcons' games this season. In a conference call with Saints beat writers Thursday, head coach Dan Quinn said Jones is expected to reach "100 percent" for Monday's outing in New Orleans, according to Herbie Teope of the Times-Picayune. Considering only three receivers have more 20-plus yard catches than Jones' four, he should be ready to roll with an extra day to rest this week.

Jones suffered a strained calf during Sunday's game against the Raiders, but the injury is not considered serious, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jones' calf strain caused him to appear a bit hobbled toward the end of Sunday's win, but reports that he was moving around fine afterward support the fact that the issue isn't cause for concern. While the Falcons may allow their star wideout some rest during practice this week, Jones is expected to be fine for Sunday's Week 3 contest versus the Saints.

Although Jones was "hobbled at the end" of Sunday's 's win over the Raiders by an unspecified issue, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com indicates that the wideout "walked out the locker room without issue."

EDGE Analysis

Per the report, Jones who posted a 5/106/1 stat line Sunday, is expected to be fine, though it seems likely that the Falcons will be inclined to take it easy on their star wideout once the team resumes practice this coming week.

Jones (ankle) is active for Sunday's contest at Oakland.

EDGE Analysis

After tweaking his left ankle in the regular season opener, Jones managed limited practices Wednesday and Thursday, yet a full session to wrap up the week paved the way for active status this weekend. With a Raiders defense on tap that conceded 423 yards passing to Drew Brees in Week 1, Jones is in line for his first 100-yard outing of the young season.

Jones (ankle) is slated to play Sunday in Oakland, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

EDGE Analysis

A limited participant Wednesday and Thursday, the 27-year-old Jones returned to a full practice Friday and doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game. He'll square off with an Oakland secondary that was torched by Drew Brees, Brandin Cooks and Willie Snead in Week 1. Mohamed Sanu (ankle) is also in line to play.

Jones (ankle) will remain limited at practice Thursday, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

EDGE Analysis

Before kicking off drills, head coach Dan Quinn said that Jones will handle half of his typical workload in anticipation of a return in full for Friday's session. With fewer reps already this week than last, though, Jones' status heading into the weekend will be of utmost interest.

Jones (ankle) was limited at Wednesday's practice, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. "[Mohamed] Sanu and Julio will be limited today," head coach Dan Quinn said. "We anticipate their arrow pointing up for more work [on Thursday] heading into the weekend."

EDGE Analysis

If Quinn is in fact a seer, Jones is poised for a full practice as early as Thursday, but two sessions remain this week for the wideout to fit in all possible drills. After a modest showing (for Jones) in Week 1, he's likely licking his chops in anticipation of Sunday's game at Oakland, whose secondary was picked apart by Drew Brees for 423 yards in the season opener.
