Falcons' Julio Jones: Won't play versus Steelers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (toe) will not play in Sunday's preseason game against the Steelers, D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Jones has been ramping up his practice activity lately, but with it only being the second exhibition contest, there's no need for him to suit up Sunday. At the moment, it remains to be seen whether Jones will get any game action prior to the regular season, but Atlanta's third preseason tilt would figure to be the most useful one for him to be involved in. As a result, his status should continue to be tracked in the upcoming week.

Falcons' Takkarist McKinley: Will play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKinley (shoulder) will play in Sunday's preseason game against the Steelers, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

McKinley has slowly increased his practice reps and is apparently ready to go for the Falcons' second preseason game Sunday. The Falcons' 2017 first-round pick is expected to shore up their defensive front, and could possibly push for a starting role.

Falcons' Takkarist McKinley: Closing in on return to game action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKinley (shoulder) is nearing a full return and could make his preseason debut Sunday at Pittsburgh, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

McKinley has witnessed a steady increase in practice reps as he works to get back to full health. The Falcons' rookie is expected to bring in much needed help on the Atlanta defensive front in his first NFL season. While it's not necessarily a guarantee he'll play in Pittsburgh, it's a good sign to his progression gaining steam.

Falcons' Jhurell Pressley: Signs with Atlanta
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pressley signed with the Falcons on Wednesday.

Pressley still remains a long shot to make the 53-man roster, but at least he'll have the opportunity to prove his worth during the preseason. The 25-year-old hails from New Mexico and most recently suited up as a member of Green Bay.

Falcons' Devonta Freeman: Remains in concussion protocol
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head coach Dan Quinn said Wednesday that he hopes Freeman will emerge from the concussion protocol by the end of the week, Kelsey Conway of the Falcons' official site reports.

Freeman kicked off the preseason slate with a 15-yard touchdown reception last Thursday in Miami, but during Sunday's practice, he suffered a concussion. Although the running back was held out of practice again Wednesday, Quinn is of the belief that Freeman's head injury won't be "a long-term issue," according to Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com. No matter, Freeman has already been ruled out of Sunday's exhibition in Pittsburgh, paving the way for Tevin Coleman and Terron Ward to lead the backfield.
