The Atlanta Falcons are in for a tough test on Sunday when division rival New Orleans comes to town. Atlanta received bad injury news when running back Devonta Freeman was ruled out for Sunday's game.

Tevin Coleman will fill in for the former Florida State star. Coleman filled in nicely last weekend against the Panthers with 107 rushing yards and four receptions for 18 yards.

On Friday afternoon, the team got a big lift when news of Julio Jones' injury was revealed. ESPN's Adam Schefter revealed Jones is good to go for Sunday's contest against the Saints.

Here's the news regarding Jones and several other NFL stars from Schefter.

Jones exploded in his first game of the season for 169 yards on 10 catches against the reigning Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles.

The former Alabama star caught five passes for 64 yards against Carolina this past weekend. He sat at No. 6 in the league in receiving yards ahead of Thursday night's contest between the Browns and Jets.

Jarvis Landry bumped Jones back to No. 7 on the list after an impressive performance.

Atlanta and New Orleans kick off at 1:00 p.m. ET.
