The Falcons are uncertain whether WR Julio Jones will play Thursday night because of a hamstring injury, a league source tells ESPN's Adam Schefter. Jones did not practice today.

Falcons WR Roddy White, who voiced his opinions about rival New Orleans before and riled up Saints diehards in the past, was asked if he made peace with the Saints fans prior to Thursday night's showdown. "Absolutely. I love those people," White said. "I can't wait to get down there and have some fun with those guys. They're a rowdy crowd and they love their football team. They'll be excited for us to get down there and have some fun."
