The Atlanta Falcons are optimistic Julio Jones will play in Week 16 after sitting out Week 15 with a toe sprain.

Jones also sat out Week 14.

"I'm hopeful that he's back," Quinn said of Jones. "So, I think that he will [return]. We're going to take it all the way through, practice Tuesday and Wednesday, and then we'll have a good shot. But I am hopeful for that.

"I can't say it's for sure until he can explode like he can, but I think he's a heck of a lot closer than he has been over the last two weeks."

The Falcons have received strong production from Taylor Gabriel, Nick Williams and Aldrick Robinson in place of Jones.
