Julio Jones Injury: Falcons WR Reportedly Will Play vs. Rams
While the outlook is bleak for Atlanta Falcons' wide receiver Roddy White, things are looking a bit better for Julio Jones.
According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, White will play in today's contest against the St. Louis Rams despite battling a minor knee issue most of the week:

Jones had a massive game last week against the New Orleans Saints, reeling in seven receptions for 76 yards and a touchdown as the highest-targeted weapon on the offense.
While Jones may not be 100 percent, the best news of the day is Roddy White will start across from Jones despite being a bit hobbled himself. Last week White played the decoy while only catching two passes, but his presence opened things up for Jones on the other side of the field.
The outlook seems bleak, especially against a tough St. Louis defensive unit, but Jones is still a solid start in all leagues.
