FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. -- Falcons strong safety William Moore, who missed last week's game against the Steelers with a foot injury, returned to practice on Thursday, while star receiver Julio Jones remained sidelined with a hip injury.

Moore's injury is believed to be related to a plantar fascia tear. His status for Sunday's game against the Saints remains unknown, although seeing him on the field with a helmet was a promising sign.

As for Jones, there's still a strong belief that he'll be ready to go Sunday despite the missed practice time. The Falcons rested him last week against the Steelers, no doubt realizing the importance of the final two games in the big picture. The 5-9 Falcons have a chance to win the NFC South and make the postseason with wins over the Saints and Panthers to close the regular season.

Receivers Roddy White (knee) and Harry Douglas (foot), like Moore, also returned to practice Thursday.

Right guard Jon Asamoah remained sidelined with a back injury. If Asamoah is unable to go Sunday, Gabe Carimi would start in his place.

Well I guess there is really no way that Julio will be able to play in light of what we learned about the coaching staffs view on game reps right? I mean if Julio cannot get on the practice field to show that he is back up to speed and able to produce again then we cannot start him right? Isn't that the way this coaching staff handles things?

We can win without Moore or even JJ.

Not sure we stand a chance without Asa. If he goes down our offense goes down with him.

On good days Caimiri has shown to be competent, most days though.....

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. -- Falcons receiver Julio Jones, recovering from a hip injury, was not on the field for the start of Friday's practice.

Jones hasn't practice all week and is game-time decision for Sunday's game against the Saints. With the Falcons' season on the line, there are strong indications he'll play through the injury despite the missed practice time.

Jones tested his hip last Saturday at the Falcons' indoor practice facility, and it was determined he wouldn't be able to go against the Steelers. Coach Mike Smith said the decision on Jones' status will be made when the inactives are released 90 minutes before Sunday's kickoff.

Also missing from Friday's practice was starting right guard Jon Asamoah, who has been sidelined with a back injury. It appears Asamoah won't be able to go, meaning Gabe Carimiwould start in his place.

Roddy White (knee), Harry Douglas (foot), and William Moore (foot) were suited up for Friday's practice

Carimi is actually fine at guard and wouldn't be much of a detriment to us, if at all. His run blocking is solid and he pass protects well when he's sandwiched between 2 guys. I just want Asamoah out there for continuity purposes

I've seen too many mental break downs with this team to be comfortable with him anywhere.
