Falcons Vs. Lions Injury Report: Julio Jones, John Abraham, Kyle Vanden Bosch Practice Holdouts

Julio Jones remains the big injury news for the Atlanta Falcons -- the rookie wide receiver missed practice and has yet to be ruled out for Sunday's game against the Detroit Lions. That's better than bad news!

Star defensive ends John Abraham and Kyle Vanden Bosch were held out, dinging each team a pass rusher. Abraham missed the Falcons' Week 5 game against the Green Bay Packers before returning to play the Carolina Panthers -- wouldn't read too much into his sitting out a day.

The Lions are banged up across the board, however, and could be the first team the Falcons will play this year that can match them on the injury report. Jahvid Best remains questionable due to his recent concussion, while former Falcons cornerback Chris Houston sat out Wednesday's practice.
