The Atlanta Falcons just sent out their final injury report and there’s some encouraging news about the status of rookie receiver Julio Jones.

He’s listed as probable. Jones missed last week’s game with a hamstring injury. Jones participated fully in Friday’s practice after working on a limited basis Thursday.

But the news isn’t nearly as good in the defensive backfield. The Falcons said cornerback Kelvin Hayden (toe) will miss Sunday’s game against Minnesota. They also are listing cornerback Brent Grimes (knee) as questionable. Grimes did not participate in Friday’s practice.

Hayden had been working as the team’s third cornerback, behind Grimes and Dunta Robinson. If Grimes can’t play, Chris Owens likely would start and Dominique Franks would be used as the third cornerback.
