Atlanta Falcons receiver Julio Jones will not play in Thursday’s Thanksgiving nightcap against the New Orleans Saints.

The team ruled him out shortly before kickoff of the NFC South clash.

Jones had been considered a game-time decision with an AC joint sprain suffered last week against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
