Dan Quinn says Julio Jones and Austin Hooper are a go to play against Panthers

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. -- Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones, who missed the Thanksgiving night matchup against New Orleans with a shoulder injury, is set to play against Carolina on Sunday.

Coach Dan Quinn declared Jones ready to go following Friday's practice. Quinn also said tight end Austin Hooper, who missed the last three games with a sprained MCL, is cleared to return to action.

Jones returned to practice this week in a limited role. Quinn said Jones would have had a chance to play against the Saints had the game been on Sunday rather than Thursday.
