Falcons expect Jones and Weatherspoon to be ready


In a perfect world, the Falcons might give wide receiver Julio Jones time to rest.

But with a key game against the Buccaneers today, they’re expected to play him, along with linebacker Sean Weatherspoon, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Both are listed as questionable this week, and Jones has been in and out with the ankle problem.

The Falcons could all but clinch the NFC South with a win today, and at the rate which the Bucs have been scoring, need all their weapons if they are to do so.
