The Atlanta Falcons will head into Sunday's matchup against the Carolina Panthers with Julio Jones listed as questionable. In addition to Jones, rookie safety Jaylinn Hawkins has been ruled out due to a concussion.

Jones missed the second half of Atlanta's game against Green Bay after re-aggravating his hamstring. He was unable to practice throughout the week, and the coaching staff was keeping a close eye on him. On the Panthers' side, cornerback Eli Apple has been ruled out for the game, so if Jones is able to go, he'd face a depleted Carolina secondary.

What it means

The Falcons are in big need of a win on Sunday, and having Julio Jones on the sidelines won't help things in that regard. On the flip side, it appears a lot of starters are set to return to action, including safeties Keanu Neal and Ricardo Allen, which should help out a secondary that has been hit hard by injuries. Rookie cornerback A.J. Terrell also figures to be back on the field Sunday. Having Jones out would be a big blow, but, on the whole, the Falcons seem to be getting somewhat healthy.

The Atlanta Falcons head to Charlotte to face the Carolina Panthers in Week 8 of the 2020 NFL season. Take a look back some of the history of the matchup at Carolina.
