NFC Notes: Falcons, Lions, Panthers, Vikings



  • Falcons HC Dan Quinn said WR Julio Jones will test his hamstring on the side with some running at practice today. However, if he doesn’t have the strength, they will go ahead and rule him out: ”He’s continuing to work through the strength in his hamstring. We’ll see what that looks like after he’ll do some running on the side today. … If he’s able to have good strength, then we can move forward. But if he doesn’t … then we won’t.” (Vaughn McClure)
  • OUT for Week 5: S Jaylinn Hawkins (concussion)
  • QUESTIONABLE for Week 5: WR Julio Jones (hamstring)


Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports that the Lions have laid off a number of staffers on the business side of the operation.

The Lions issued the following statement regarding the moves:

“Consistent with organizational policy, we will not be issuing comment on internal business matters.”
