Falcons going with undrafted rookie James Stone at center
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

With center Peter Konz (ACL) out for the season, the Falcons are going with undrafted rookie James Stone at center Sunday against the Lions. He'll be Atlanta's third center this season after the team put Joe Hawley and Konz on injured reserve.

Stone has played in three games. Quarterback Matt Ryan said Stone performed well after replacing Konz in the first quarter Week 7 at Baltimore. "I thought James Stone did a great job of coming in and filling in for Peter," Ryan told the team's website.

Julio Jones shouldering the blame
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Falcons wideout Julio Jones has gone four straight games without a touchdown, and he's failed to clear 70 receiving yards in the last two. Jones, who has dropped five passes, pointed to himself as the problem.

"It starts with me," he said on NFL Network. "I got to go out there and make plays when they are presented to me. I got to go out and catch the ball, be more of a deep threat.

"We are out there misreading or dropping balls. We have to fix that. It's nothing that the defense is doing; we have to fix that here."

Atlanta plays the Lions in London on Sunday.

Falcons WR Roddy White trying to eliminate the drops
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Falcons wideout Roddy White remains down on his play despite catching nine passes for 100 yards and a touchdown Week 7, reports ESPN.com. He has dropped five passes this year, tied for fourth-most in the NFL.

"Mentally, I feel like I'm in the game plan. Mentally, I feel prepared for the games. It's just ... I don't know what it is," he told the website. "I'm not finishing plays. I'm not doing what I'm supposed to do."

White, who turns 33 next month, vowed to fix the problem. And he said injuries are not a factor.

"It's frustrating me," he said. "I'll figure it out, though. I will figure it out."
