Falcons LB Jones will not play versus Cowboys

Atlanta Falcons middle linebacker Deion Jones will not play Sunday in Atlanta's Week 11 matchup with the Dallas Cowboys at home in Mercedes-Benz Stadium, head coach Dan Quinn confirmed to the media on Friday.

Jones has been missing from action since Week 1 when he broke his foot. He was placed on Injured Reserve with a designation to return shortly after the team's Sept. 6 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles.

The Falcons activated Jones from IR on Tuesday, but he's been limited in practice.

Quinn told reporters the team wasn't going to rush Jones into action; the Falcons would wait until the linebacker was 100 percent before allowing him back onto the field in a game.
