                    === Falcons term Jones questionable ===
 Flowery  Branch,  GA (Sports Network)  - The  Atlanta Falcons have listed wide
 receiver  Julio Jones as  questionable for Sunday's game at Tampa Bay due to a
 sore ankle that's plagued the second-year standout the last two weeks.
 Jones  has yet  to miss  a  game with  the  injury, which  he incurred  during
 Atlanta's  31-27 loss at rival New Orleans on Nov. 11, but has been limited in
 each  of the team's past two outings and exited last week's 23-19 victory over
 Arizona in the fourth quarter.
 The  2011 first-round  draft  pick managed  just three  catches  for 33  yards
 against the Cardinals and had 75 yards on four grabs in the New Orleans game.
 Jones  racked up 252 yards and a touchdown on 10 catches over the two contests
 that  preceded  the loss  to the  Saints. For the  season, the 23-year-old has
 recorded 47 receptions totaling 736 yards and five scores.
 A  pair of  defensive starters,  linebacker Sean  Weatherspoon and  cornerback
 Asante  Samuel, were  also marked as questionable for Sunday's matchup, though
 both  were  able to  practice on a  limited basis on  Friday after sitting out
 Thursday's session.
 Weatherspoon,  who's  dealing  with  an  ankle  sprain,  hasn't  played  since
 Atlanta's  Week 9 victory  over Dallas on Nov. 4. Samuel left last week's game
 with a right shoulder injury.
 Defensive  tackles  Peria Jerry (quadriceps)  and Vance Walker (ribs) are also
 questionable  to  face  the  Buccaneers, while  running  back  Michael  Turner
 (groin),  defensive end  John  Abraham (back)  and  defensive tackle  Jonathan
 Babineaux (neck) were among those listed as probable.
