    'Spoon, Julio, Gonzalez and Turner limited in practice Wednesday

    Falcons WLB Sean Weatherspoon (ankle) did not participate in Wednesday's practice.

    Weatherspoon sat out the Falcons' last two games, but has reportedly made progress and begun running. "He moved around. Well ramp that up (Thursday) and see how he feels in the morning. Then, well determine what his workload will be for (Thursday)," said coach Mike Smith. Akeem Dent has recorded 16 total tackles (10 solo) in Weatherspoon's place as an every-down 'backer in the Falcons' nickel packages.
    Julio Jones (ankle) was held out of Wednesday's practice.

    "We wanted to keep Julio off his feet," Falcons coach Mike Smith said. "Julio will be evaluated tomorrow and we will determine how much work hell do." It's not a major concern since Jones played through the ailment in Sunday's loss to the Saints. For now, there's no reason to believe he won't be ready for Sunday's tilt with the Cardinals.
    Michael Turner was limited in Wednesday's practice.

    It's Turner's first appearance on the injury report this season, but he wasn't known to be hurt in Sunday's loss. His status will be worth double-checking on Thursday, but he should be fine for Week 11. At least physically, that is. Owners should expect another dismal day production-wise.
    Tony Gonzalez was limited in Wednesday's practice with a shoulder injury.

    It's not a concern for Gonzalez's Week 11 status, even though he's missed remarkably little practice time this season. Coming off an 11/122/2 Week 10, he's locked in as a TE1 against the Cardinals.

    Probably not the biggest news as we love to hold out players for rest.. But it's a lot of big names so I figured it'd be relevant to track Jones and Spoon at least.

    LOL at Turner's analysis:

    Owners should expect another dismal day production-wise.

    I hope we get Spoon back. He is the fire of our D. I think the only one at risk of missing is Julio. He didn't look exactly like himself after getting hurt. With the weapons we have, they may rest him as to not aggravate it.

    Julio Jones (ankle) missed practice again on Thursday.

    Similar to Ryan Mathews, Jones returned to the game and finished it out last week after suffering the injury. Coach Mike Smith said Thursday that Jones and LB Sean Weatherspoon (ankle) are "so close and moving in the right direction." The Falcons will hold off on a decision "as late as they possibly can." Jones is starting to take on the look of a game-time call, though we still suspect he will play after convincing medical personnel to let him back in the game last week.
    Tony Gonzalez was upgraded to full participation in Thursday's practice.

    Gonzalez is fine for Week 11 versus the Cardinals. He's attempting to lead tight ends in receiving yards for the third time since turning 30 years old. No other over-30 tight end in history has accomplished the feat.
    Michael Turner (groin) was limited again in Thursday's practice.

    Turner has a history of groin injuries, so it's a situation to monitor. For Week 11, though, he's not believed to be in any danger of sitting out. Turner has a fine matchup against a reeling Cardinals run defense likely to be without Calais Campbell (calf), but he's hard to trust in fantasy leagues after laying an egg versus the NFL's softest defense.
