News: Jones (ankle) had four receptions for 58 yards in Sunday's loss to the Lions. Impact: Jones was targeted just six times, the first time all year that he received fewer than eight looks. The biggest culprit was a Falcons offense that completely stagnated, after building a 21-0 halftime lead and managed only 75 yards of offense in the second half. Atlanta is off next week, before a Week 10 game at Tampa Bay, the team Jones torched for 161 yards and two scores in Week 3.(RotoWire, )

News: Jones (ankle) is active for Sunday's game against the Lions. Impact: Jones continues to deal with soreness in his ankle, something that has bothered him for most of the season. He'll play through it, against one of the league's best defenses, which comes into Week 8 as the sixth-best in passing yards allowed per game.(RotoWire, )

News: Jones (ankle) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Lions. Impact: The soreness in Jones' ankle continues to linger, but he is good to go this week after practicing fully Thursday and Friday. He has a tough matchup this week, however, squaring off against a Lions defense that ranks sixth in the league against the pass and has given up just seven passing touchdowns in seven games this season.(RotoWire, )

News: Jones (ankle) practiced fully Thursday, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Impact: Jones, who was limited on Wednesday, thus appears on track to draw a probable designation in advance of Sunday's game against the Lions.(RotoWire, )

News: Jones (ankle) was limited in Wednesday's practice, the Falcons' official site reports. Impact: Last week, Jones progressed from limited practices Wednesday and Thursday to a full session and a probable designation for Week 7, with such a scenario likely to occur again in advance of Sunday's game against the Lions.(RotoWire, )

News: Jones (ankle) had five catches on eight targets for 56 yards in Sunday's 29-7 loss at Baltimore. Impact: Jones caught a 10-yard screen at one point, in which he broke several tackles and showed a good burst. He also had a 24-yard grab, but was otherwise silent. Meanwhile, Roddy White busted out for the first time this season, grabbing nine passes on 15 targets for 100 yards and a touchdown. Other than White, the entire Falcons' offense struggled, however, so we'll give Jones a mulligan. It might get tougher for him next week, facing a strong Lions' secondary in London.(RotoWire, )

News: Jones (ankle) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against Baltimore, ESPN's Vaughn McClure reports. Impact: Jones played through the ankle injury last week, and although he only managed four catches, he was targeted 12 times and remains Matt Ryan's favorite receiver by a large margin. He should receive plenty of opportunities again Sunday against Baltimore's 27th-ranked pass defense.(RotoWire, )
