Jones (ankle/knee) was a limited practice participant Wednesday, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jones apparently added a minor knee injury to the ankle ailment that's been bothering him for a few weeks. He's yet to miss a game this season and has a long history of lower-body injuries, but it's possible the wear and tear has contributed to his disappointing campaign. The bigger factor seems to be a lack of red-zone opportunities and overall inconsistency with volume, as he's producing 9.1 yards per target yet is on pace to finish the year with only 86 catches for 1,258 yards on 138 targets. Jones should be ready for Sunday's favorable home matchup with the Buccaneers.

Jones caught five of 10 targets for 71 yards in Monday night's 34-31 win over the Seahawks.

EDGE Analysis

Jones led the Falcons in all major receiving categories, although Mohamed Sanu and tight end Levine Toilolo were the ones to catch touchdown passes. After managing an ankle injury for a second straight week, Jones improved on his Week 10 performance. That development, coupled with the fact Atlanta hosts Tampa Bay's second-worst passing defense, offers optimism for a big day from Jones this Sunday.

Jones (ankle) was absent from the Falcons' injury report and is in line to play Monday night against the Seahawks, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jones was held out of practice Thursday as the wideout continued to battle a nagging ankle injury. However, he was able to take the field the past two days and, barring any major setbacks, should be set for the Monday night showdown. Jones played well last week against the Cowboys --seven receptions for 139 yards and a touchdown -- after missing practices during the week and he'll look to do the same this week against a battered Seahawks' secondary that will be without Kam Chancellor (neck) and Richard Sherman (Achilles).

Jones (ankle) will practice Friday, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

While he'll likely only be a limited participant, Friday's return puts Jones on track for Monday's road game against the Seahawks. He was also held out of practice until Friday last week and ended up catching six of eight targets for 57 yards in Sunday's 27-7 win over Dallas. Jones caught seven passes for 139 yards and a touchdown in Seattle early last season, and that was with Richard Sherman (Achilles) in the lineup.

Jones (ankle) was held out of practice Thursday, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

EDGE Analysis

Prior to the Falcons' morning walkthrough, head coach Dan Quinn mentioned Jones would practice on a limited basis, but his prediction didn't come to fruition. The development may have been a precautionary measure as Jones works through an ankle injury for the second consecutive week. In any case, Thursday's absence will induce owners to check in regularly to make sure he's available for Monday's showdown in Seattle.

Falcons head coach Dan Quinn said that Jones would be a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Quinn didn't specify why Jones would be limited for the Falcons' first practice session of the week, but it's likely related to the ankle injury that resulted in the team restricting the wideout's practice reps before he suited up for the Week 10 win over the Cowboys. Jones escaped the victory without any reported setbacks to the ankle, so there's a good possibility he's just getting something of a maintenance day in advance of Monday's matchup with the Seahawks.

Jones caught six of eight pass attempts for 57 yards in Sunday's 27-7 win over Dallas.

EDGE Analysis

Jones followed up his highest-yardage game of the season in Week 9 with his second-lowest on Sunday, but gameflow was largely to blame for the lack of output. Matt Ryan spread the ball around, targeting eight different receivers, three of which amassed 49 or more yards. And once the Falcons got up 24-7 early in the fourth quarter, they only threw the ball only one more time for the remainder of the game. The 28-year-old receiver will try to get back on track Week 11 in Seattle.

Jones (ankle) returned to practice Friday and will play in Sunday's game against the Cowboys, Kelsey Conway of AtlantaFalcons.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Despite missing practice Wednesday and Thursday and only logging a limited session Friday, the star wideout doesn't have any injury designation for Sunday's game. Falcons coach Dan Quinn said Jones looked explosive at Friday's practice, perhaps hinting that he could've logged a full practice if the team had so desired. The lack of an injury designation suggests Jones should be fine to handle his usual workload, barring an in-game aggravation to his ankle.

Falcons coach Dan Quinn said Jones (ankle) looked explosive at Friday's practice, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

While he still figures to show up on the final injury report, Jones has put himself on track to play in Sunday's game against the Cowboys, despite missing practice Wednesday and Thursday. He played through the ankle injury in the second half of last week's 20-17 loss to Carolina, though it may have played a role in his memorable dropped touchdown, a play that would've resulted in his best stat line of the season if he'd held on. It is possible the Falcons restrict Jones' snap share to something below its usual range of 80-to-90 percent in Sunday's matchup with the Cowboys.

Jones (ankle) suited up for Friday's practice, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

It won't be clear until after the session how much work Jones was able to get in, but his presence alone is encouraging coming off two straight days without any work. A final call on his Week 10 status may not come until Sunday if he is listed as questionable, but fantasy players have reason to be optimistic about him playing this week.
