Falcons' Taylor Gabriel: No injury designation
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Gabriel (foot) does not have an injury designation ahead of Sunday's NFC championship game versus the Packers after fully practicing Friday.

Gabriel was limited both Wednesday and Thursday to rest his ailing foot, but his full practice Friday cleared any uncertainty regarding his status. The speedster will be available as usual to face a mistake-prone Green Bay secondary, and he should take confidence from catching all three of his targets for 68 yards and a touchdown in Atlanta's previous meeting with the Packers this season.

Falcons' Julio Jones: Won't be restricted Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Jones (toe) was a limited participant in Friday's practice, but according to coach Dan Quinn, he has no restrictions entering Sunday's NFC championship game, ESPN's Vaughn McClure reports.

Jones sat out practice both Wednesday and Thursday to limit the stress on his injured toe, but in taking the practice field Friday, he cleared any concern over his availability. Atlanta's star wideout will be uninhibited come Sunday, when his game-breaking ability could cause problems for a lackluster Packers secondary that's dealing with injuries of its own.

Falcons' Julio Jones: Sidelined again Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (toe) will be a non-participant at Thursday's practice, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

On Wednesday, head coach Dan Quinn stated that Jones would increase his activity as the week proceeded. Instead, Jones maintained a similar workload Thursday, sticking to solely the walkthrough session. Despite the lack of development on the practice front, Jones said that he'll "be ready to go" for Sunday's NFC championship game against the Packers. In the end, though, Jones' availability will receive some clarification upon the release of Friday's injury report.

Falcons' Taylor Gabriel: Limited Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gabriel (foot) was a limited practice participant Wednesday, Kelsey Conway of the Falcons' official site reports.

After logging an entire week of full practices, Gabriel received just 24 of the 72 offensive snaps Saturday against the Seahawks, which was well behind fellow wideouts Mohamed Sanu (49) and Julio Jones (42), and nearly equal to Aldrick Robinson's allotment of 25. Gabriel's inability to grab a larger workload is worrisome due to the seeming cap placed upon Jones, who has contended with a toe injury for more than a month and kicked off this week with a DNP. If allowed to play, as expected, in Sunday's NFC championship game versus the Packers, Jones should earn the largest share of WR reps, ensuring that Gabriel will have to take full advantage of his limited snap count.

Falcons' Julio Jones: No practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (toe) won't participate in practice Wednesday, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

Terming Jones' absence "by design," head coach Dan Quinn relayed that his No. 1 wide receiver will increase his activity level as the week goes on, according to Lindsay Jones of USA Today Sports. It should be noted that Jones, the wideout, completed Wednesday's walkthrough, so he wasn't completely shut down Wednesday. Even if he doesn't log a full allotment of practice reps in a given day by week's end, the Falcons haven't expressed any worry about his potential to suit up for Sunday's NFC championship game against the Packers.
