Harry Douglas (foot) is a game-time decision for Sunday's game against the Detroit Lions. 

Douglas has missed the last four games and only just returned to practice Thursday. And on a limited basis at that. Even if the Falcons decide to use Douglas he's not going to be back to 100-percent and will likely have his snaps limited. He is not a recommended fantasy starter.

Julio Jones (ankle) was a full participant in practice on Thursday.

Wednesday was just a simple day off and Jones is fully expected to play this Sunday against the Lions. Though Matt Ryan may have some trouble adjusting to his new center, Jones remains a must-start in all formats.

Harry Douglas (foot) returned to practice on Thursday, but was limited.

This is the first practice for Douglas in quite some time and while it was limited, it's still a good step for him. Unfortunately, it might not matter for this week as there may not be enough time for him to get ready for Sunday's game against the Lions. He's likely to be listed as questionable which should make him a game time decision, but in truth, you're not going to want to use him until he's 100-percent healthy.

Justin Blalock (back) was limited at practice Wednesday.

Blalock should be able to play against Detroit this weekend. If Blalock were to be held out of action, Jonathan Scott would receive the start at the left guard position.

Jonathan Babineaux (foot) did not participate in practice Wednesday.

Babineaux has started in six of the team's seven games, and has eleven tackles on the year. Jonathan Massaquoi is Babineaux's back up and could see a larger role if Babineaux is deemed unable to play.

Prince Shembo (knee) was limited at practice Wednesday.

Shembo is listed as questionable for Sunday's contest and will likely be a game time decision.

Julio Jones (ankle) was limited during practice Wednesday.

This is exactly how Jones' practice schedule started last week. He was limited Wednesday and Thursday and worked his way up to a probable designation for the game. He should be just fine for this week's game against the Lions.

Harry Douglas, who's missed four straight games with a foot injury, did not practice Wednesday.

Another missed practice for Douglas doesn't bode well for his return to the field against the Lions this week. Unless there's some miraculous recovery in the next couple of days, it's very likely he misses a fifth game.

Falcons placed C Peter Konz on injured reserve.

Just another blow to the Falcons already battered offensive line. He was by no means the best offensive lineman but after losing their starting center Joe Hawley, he was the next man up. The Falcons have signed Jonathan Scott to add depth to the line.

Falcons signed OT Jonathan Scott.

The Falcons are scraping the bottom of the barrel to find depth along their offensive line. The signing of Scott means that the injury to Konz is probably worse than they originally thought. If you are an owner of Matt Ryan, you should be really worried.
