Earlier on Friday it was reported that Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones would play on Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings, and Jones backed that up by fully participating in Friday's practice. This was his first full practice this week and the hope is that Jones is fully recovered from the hamstring that has bothered Jones for the past two months and caused him to miss last weeks game against the Tennessee Titans.
Defensive tackle Vance Walker made an appearance on the injury report for the first time this week and cornerback Kelvin Hayden has officially been ruled out. Offensive tackle Sam Barker who has missed time with a back injury was able to fully participate in Friday's practice, but he is still listed as questionable.
Here's the full Falcons practice and injury report for Week 12:
DID NOT PARTICIPATE: Cornerback Kelvin Hayden (groin, out) and cornerback Brent Grimes (knee, questionable)
LIMITED PARTICIPATION: Defensive tackle Vance Walker (groin, questionable).
FULL PARTICIPATION: Wide receiver Julio Jones (hamstring, probable), safety William Moore (quadricep, probable), defensive end John Abraham (not injury-related, probable), guard Justin Blalock (ankle, probable), tight end Tony Gonzalez (not injury-related, probable), defensive tackle Corey Peters (knee, probable), linebacker Curtis Lofton (ankle, probable) and offensive tackle Sam Baker (back, questionable)
