Julio Jones expected to play Sunday vs. Minnesota

The Falcons issued their final injury report on Friday and there’s some promising news about the status of rookie wideout Julio Jones.

The Alabama alum is listed as probable after sitting out last week’s game with a hamstring injury.

Jones participated fully in Friday’s practice after working on a limited basis Thursday.

Other injury news: Cornerback Kelvin Hayden (toe) will miss Sunday’s game against Minnesota and Brent Grimes (knee) is listed as questionable. Grimes did not participate in Friday’s practice.

If Grimes can’t play, Chris Owens likely would start and Dominique Franks would be used as the third cornerback.
