Falcons' Jones, Ridley questionable but improving

3:55 PM ET

Atlanta Falcons receivers Julio Jones and Calvin Ridley, listed as questionable, are trending upward for Monday night’s game at Green Bay.

The team ruled out four other players. Starting safeties Keanu Neal and Ricardo Allen, starting defensive end Takk McKinley and kicker Younghoe Koo won’t play due to injuries. McKinley and Koo are recovering from groin injuries, Allen hyperextended his left elbow and Neal injured his left hamstring last week against the Chicago Bears.

With Koo unavailable, the Falcons plan to elevate recently signed Elliott Fry from the practice squad to kick at Lambeau Field. Fry has yet to appear in an NFL game after spending time with the Bears, Ravens, Panthers and Buccaneers.

Jones and Ridley practiced all week but were limited coming off hamstring and ankle injuries, respectively.

When asked before Saturday’s practice if Jones and Ridley would be ready to go, Falcons coach Dan Quinn was optimistic.

“I hope so. We just got done with our walk-through, and they were able to be involved in that,” Quinn said. “As we go through practice today, we’ll get a better sense. But yeah, they’re definitely trending up.”
