Falcons Vs. Lions Injury Updates: Julio Jones Doubtful, Jahvid Best Out

Slightly good news for the Atlanta Falcons: star wide receiver Julio Jones is merely doubtful for Sunday's game against the Detroit Lions despite missing three days of practice this week. Nickel back Christopher Owens is the only Falcons player ruled out, while defensive end John Abraham, tackle Sam Baker, center Todd McClure and guard Garrett Reynolds are all questionable, though Mike Smith has already said he expects McClure to play.

For the Lions, running back Jahvid Best is officially out, and safety Vincent Fuller and receiver Rashied Davis are doubtful. Cornerback Aaron Berry and defensive end Willie Young are questionable.
