FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) - Star receiver Julio Jones and safety William Moore are making improvement from injuries as the Atlanta Falcons prepare to face the Pittsburgh Steelers.
The Falcons limited their work to a walk-through Wednesday, looking to recover from a Monday night loss to the Green Bay Packers. But coach Mike Smith said Jones and Moore would not have been able to practice, even if it had been a normal workout.
That said, Smith says he remains confident that both players will be able to go Sunday against the Steelers.
Jones went out late in the 43-37 loss with a hip injury after making 11 catches for a team-record 259 yards. Moore already missed much of the season with a shoulder injury and had to leave the game after hurting his foot.
