The Falcons and fantasy football team owners have a reason to smile in Week 2. According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Atlanta's two starting wide receivers Julio Jones (knee) and Roddy White (ankle) will play on Sunday against the Rams. Rapoport adds that White will have a light load with limited snaps.
Veteran wide receiver Harry Douglas will fill in for White, when the Pro Bowler is off the field. Douglas has been with the Falcons since 2008, when he was taken in the third-round of that year's draft by Atlanta. He has started nine games during his career and had four catches for 93 yards in Week 1 against New Orleans, while White was resting on the sideline.
Despite his injury woes, it looks like Jones will not be limited during the game against the Rams. Jones suffered a knee injury in the Falcons' Week 1 loss against the Saints in New Orleans.
The Falcons host the Rams on FOX at 1 p.m. ET.
