The Falcons have released their final injury report for Sunday’s game against the Vikings, and Julio Jones is playing — Takk McKinley is not.

Jaylinn Hawkins will also sit for Atlanta, which will sting with Damontae Kazee being done for 2020. Julio missed the Bears game, left the Packers game early, and did not play in last week’s loss to Carolina. He’s going to test that hamstring and give it a go.
McKinley is out again with a groin injury. With Atlanta’s pass rush ranking 28th in the NFL in sacks per game, don’t expect it to get any better. Marlon Davidson is also on the COVID-19 list, so Minnesota will have a leg up on running and throwing the football.
We’ll keep you posted with any more injury updates.
