Falcons Vs. Jaguars Injury Report: Michael Turner, Julio Jones Miss Practice Time

The Atlanta Falcons are readying to play the Jacksonville Jaguars in perhaps the most-anticipated Thursday night game of this entire week. The first injury report for the game is out, revealing a lengthy list of non-participants, in addition to the standard list of resting seniors.

Running back Michael Turner skipped practice, as did slot receiver Harry Douglas and starting tackle Will Svitek. All three of those gentlemen were felled by groin injuries. Julio Jones was also limited, this time due to a back injury. Sam Baker filled in for Tyson Clabo, who was out with an illness.

On the Jags side, Cecil Shorts and Guy Whimper have funny names.
