The first half of the Falcons season has been highlighted by the players they’ve lost. Wednesday, the got a glimpse of one that might be coming back.

Via D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Pro Bowl linebacker Deion Jones tested his broken foot during practice, working on the side with the team’s athletic training staff.

Jones broke his foot in the opener, and has missed six games, which means he’s at least two weeks away from a return. But he’d provide a boost to a defense that was shell-shocked in the first three weeks, when he and starting safeties Ricardo Allen and Keanu Neal went to IR.

The Falcons are expected to use their other designated for return spot on running back Devonta Freeman, who is out following core muscle surgery.

A player can start practicing after six weeks, which triggers a three-week window to activate him. Jones apparently isn’t ready for that much work load, but being back on his feet is a positive step. In addition to his own play, he’d help the entire defense as he’s the signal-caller, and that job has been split among a few players early this year.

If we can get Deion back and he is really good to go and Kazee keeps improving and we can get someone to play at least at an average level at strong safety, I really think we can make a push.  There are a lot of if's, but everyone should have hope.  The offense is running well, if we can get our Oline to play a little better and the Dline is finally healthy, we can make some noise.

Falcons need to win the next two without him or else the season is over imo 

I think for a wild card this year we have to be at least 10 - 6.  I don't think 9 - 7 will get us in.  We have Green Bay and the Aint's in a few weeks, but if the offense can clean up the mistakes and the defense can just improve a little, I think we have a legit shot at making the playoffs.  We need to win one of those two road games, but both will be tough.  The next two weeks and how this team responds I think will tell us before the Thanksgiving game.  If we drop either of the games against the Redskins or Browns, then we have no business thinking about playoffs.

NFL players are not "KIDS", they are grown men.  Because someone is younger than you doesn't make them a "KID".   Kids write to Santa, and go to school.  

Lol, of all the things to reply about concerning this thread, you chose that? Relax kid....

Look up the definition of "KID"

There's no need to look up anything. I'm well educated enough to know what that word means and to know you're being a thread killer for the OP. You're agenda here is way off topic and there's no need entertaining it. For the record, "kid" is a term also used for "young man".

Last year, We beat most of the team in the wild card chase. We have to beat Skiins, Dallas, GB, Panthers etc... otherwise, It's going to be a tough road ahead. 

Beat SKINS!  One game at a time.

Falcons fans here should know how any given sunday or any given quarter of game our Falcons can be given tough dose of reality check.
