Five starters have been deemed questionable for Atlanta's Week 3 game against Chicago, and their availability will be important for a team seeking its first win of the season. Wide receiver Julio Jones, linebacker Foye Oluokun, right tackle Kaleb McGary and defensive ends Dante Fowler and Takk McKinley are the players listed as questionable for the upcoming game. Oluokun, Fowler and McGary were all able to practice in a limited capacity on Friday, but both Jones and McKinley were unable to do so, marking the third-straight practice both players have missed.

What it means

The Falcons won't be in the best shape if all five of the players listed as questionable are unable to play against the Bears. Coach Dan Quinn said they would take it all the way up until the game before making a determination on Jones's hamstring. In a bit of positive news, it appears Charles Harris and rookie defensive tackle Marlon Davidson are set to get their first action of the season, which is needed if neither Fowler nor McKinley are available. On the Bears' side, star pass rusher Khalil Mack is listed a questionable for Sunday, and his status is worth monitoring in the lead up to the game.
